Biggest WTF Moments in Travel

Epcot wine tasting, not quite what we were hoping for.

When you travel a ridiculous amount per year, ridiculous things are going to happen.  I’ve had quite a few.

Probably my biggest WTF moment ever was when someone volunteered to give my seat away.

People were looking to switch seats on the airplane to sit next to each other and a gentleman volunteered to be very helpful by telling them….. I(Jeanne) would be happy to move.

Has Anyone Ever Given Your Seat Away?

Another WTF moment was when the aircraft I was on was hit by a truck.

That post is here:

My Plane Was Hit By a Truck! 

The biggest WTF story I wrote on so far is hard to decide.  Is it the pilot locking himself out of the cockpit after using the bathroom?  The little boy who snuck past security at the airport and took a flight to Las Vegas?

No, I think it is when a dog pooped so effectively, it landed a plane.

And the biggest WTF moment for those traveling around me was when I fell asleep and started cuddling a bar of chocolate.   I wish I were joking.  It has a messy ending, to say the least.

But with all the travel I do, I think I’m lucky that I don’t have bigger WTF moments than that.

So I’m curious — what was your biggest WTF moment while traveling?
