Carmine’s Travels

April 20, 2012

I returned back at work from the airport.

Oh, you didn’t know? Carmine went on vacation. I had to bring him to the airport. His plane left at 4:25pm. I left him there at 2:00pm after he checked his bags and was ready to head to the gate.

One co-worker took a look at me and saw my face. My face must have told the end of a story because he asked “What happened?”

“What happened! What do you think happened. Carmine happened.”

At 3:35pm, Carmine called me and demanded I come back to the airport to bring him a credit card. Any credit card.

When he arrives at his destination, he will need to rent a car. He won’t be able to rent a car without a credit card. Regardless of whether or not he’s already paid for the rental car, he needs to leave a credit card as a security deposit.

Based on the time until take-off, there wasn’t much time to argue. I just hopped back in the car and starting driving to the airport. At which point, he called again. He asked for the number of the credit card. Over the phone, I provided him with a credit card’s number, security number, expiration date and the toll free phone number on the back of the card.

Afterword

Carmine left me a voicemail at 4:00am today. He arrived. He got his rental car. Everything is okay.

    Ah, Carmine. Your life might actually get normal without him. Be grateful…I guess.

    How much does normal cost? I’ll foot the bill. I want normal.

    He must’ve forgotten the old “Don’t leave home without it!” mantra. Poor you!

    I’m glad he’s okay though! And that everything went well. :)

    He forgets everything. But he’s been in rain since he landed so he can’t enjoy the outside like he wanted to. hehehe
