The unspectacular things are the important things

Worth watching.

Dear Expedia, we’re done.

Hello Expedia,

I just finished talking to you on the phone for the past 20 minutes.

Why? Well you see, I feel like I just got jacked.

While booking a flight to LAS, a friend of mine found a flight for $508 (taxes in). So we go ahead and book the flights. His goes through, mine however at the last possible second ie: while I’m checking out and have just finished putting my credit card information, jumps up to $571.27. Um. What?

Apparently this has to do with supply and demand.

Personally, I don’t give a shit. I feel like I just got jacked. The fact that you (Expedia) cannot guarantee the price through checkout (which took me maybe 2 minutes), is absolute and complete bullshit. Especially when their competitors secure the price if you checkout within 10 minutes.

Having talked to your customer service on the phone, the lady told me she cannot relate to this problem. That’s interesting. Interesting in a way that sounds like “I don’t give a shit about you”.

I kid you not. Talking to you on the phone was absolutely stunning. The fact that this is my first experience using your service, and feeling like I got ripped off at the last second and hearing that you don’t care kinda hurts my feelings.

Do you think I’ll ever use Expedia again? Do you think any of my friends or family will?

Yeah. Unlikely.

PS. This isn’t about the money, it’s about you caring. Which you don’t.

That castle they built/blew up in Kananaskis

Not sure if you recall, but a year or two ago some movie (featuring Leonardo DiCapirio) set was built: a castle/prison/big thinger in the middle of the now shut down Fortress Mountain. During this time that entire area was shut down to backcountry skiers wanting to hit up the area (boo!).

Anyways, it seems that the movie is called Inception, and it looks kinda badass:

Yeah! Dark right? Sweet.

Also maybe we can go backcountry ski around that area this upcoming winter! Hurray!

Impressive that this actually works.

Inspiration is cross pollinating
