United Economy Class Vegetables and Rice
Looks nasty? It was. Had I seen it beforehand I probably would have gotten the sandwich instead, but it was too late. Worse, it was filled with two things that I absolutely despise: water chestnuts and cooked carrots (I like raw carrots but hate cooked ones because they become sweet). At least those chips were good.
Perhaps more interesting was my seating adventure, which started when I cleared the Business Class waitlist at the gate. I settled happily into that upper deck window seat and even started a movie as we sat at the gate for a while.
Then after about 20 minutes, an agent came upstairs. The original passenger finally showed up, thus bumping me down past even my originally assigned Economy Plus seat into a spot all the way in the back of the plane. Oh well - so much for getting work done on a nearly drained battery.
