on average, over the past 17 years, I have gone through an airport every 3 days or so. I have a great deal of stories about how annoying things were, and a few stories of great service. I try just not to get to upset about it, it is more of less a force of nature. You have the proper attitude about travel. My father, who was well traveled, taught me how to shake off the inevitable vicissitudes of the "road". I was around ten years old, traveling with my father in the Philippines, when a storm shut down the Manila airport. As nearly all around were throwing hissy-fits my father said, "come on kid, let's go find something to eat".
