Today, I booked my holiday flights. There's 700 miles between the small country I live in and the family I'm visiting, normally one 3-hour flight. Thanks to hurricanes Irma and Maria, the only available route traverses 1700 miles and will take 26 continuous hours. FML

I have good news, those hurricanes were two months ago so you should be all clear!

I’m sorry for posting anything resembling a joke. I’ll be a good fml commenter from now on and only post brilliantly worded comments like ”I’m so sorry OP”, I promise.

Just because the hurricanes were two months ago doesn't mean that recovery efforts are complete, or that all air travel typically passing through those areas has been restored.

Damages are still there. Most of Puerto Rico still does not have electricity for instance.

You could always blow off the holiday for a few more months?

The good news is you’ll have a long, boring story to tell at family gatherings. It’s always good to have something to talk about other than the things that have disappointed your family.

You could always visit another time. You did this to yourself.

Nope. Continuous. Continuous: “Back to motherfuckin back”.

I'm sure your family would have understood if you hadn't come this year or at least delayed it by a few months and come Easter or whatever the next applicable holiday is.

Good god, what a detour. My flights from Ohio to Iraq with two stops in between were about 20 hours a piece. Where in god’s name did they divert you to?

I’d probably just skip it this time then. I’m sure your family will understand.

And you thought this was good planning rather than wait a week? You’re an idiot!

I'm sorry that Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria ravaged several islands and left thousands of people homeless and even more without power are lengthening your holiday travel plans.
