Took Metro 4 hours before flight home. Airport bus at Opéra, but where? click on stressometer. Asked around, none knew!.. click! 15mins finding stop.. click! Rains.. click! Every 20mins?.. over 40mins, no bus.. click!

Bus arrives, won’t let us on.. click! Changing driver.. click!

Seated in dense traffic.. click! Barely moving.. click! One hour to airport? Liars!.. click! Crawling to Périphérique... click! Accelerating, yippee! Screen shows progress – T1 16mins, T3 36mins. WHAT ABOUT T2, MY TERMINAL?.. click! No information.. click!

T2 after T1, (phew!). Flight delayed.. click!

Fasten belt... CLICK!

Is guy in next seat a terrorist?.... unclick!..... QUICK!

    Thanks Christopher. In my other drabble, Daylight Robbery, the incident with the New Yorker also happened on that airport trip - except that I didn't steal his money, but he clearly was trying to con me out of mine! (Or if not, I really left another human being in the lurch!)
