I got to the airport at 4PM for a 6PM flight to Amsterdam.
This was to be my first European trip from NYC, and I was revelling in the idea of arriving fresh and early in the morning without having to go through London or Frankfurt. NYC is big enough to have direct flights!
But when I got to the airport it was all screwed up. I'm not on the 6PM -- I'm on the 11PM. I'm already feeling jetlagged and haven't even left my home timezone yet.
