One of our family’s most favorite vacations was almost over before we left town.
A few summers ago, I pre-paid for a week in the Rocky Mountains. It was going to be five FUN-tastic days of dude ranching and whitewater rafting adventure. To kick off the trip, my husband and I promised our sons pancakes at a Food Network®-acclaimed diner. It really doesn’t get much better than that for two “tween”-aged boys. As luck goes, we were bumped from our departing flight while at the airport check-in counter.
That’s also when we learned that the discount airline from which I bought our tickets was “discount” because they did not have reciprocation contracts with other carriers. This meant our tickets were worthless, and we were stuck. Our boys were devastated!
