Lisa Costello and I continue to prepare for heading back to Maryland next week to aid her family there. The logistics of cancelling our trip to WFC in the UK have become nightmarish and very expensive. United Airlines turned down my request for a compassionate refund with no explanation. @united says they're reviewing the case. I am also getting a great deal of financial pressure over this cancellation from other sources I cannot discuss yet.

All of this is just more crap I have to deal with. More money to be spent which I don't have, to pay for something I cannot do.

I know there's no rule in life that says there's an upper bound to one's troubles, but I am frustrated beyond measure and stretched close to my breaking point right now, in part by the sheer, simple insensitivity of people and institutions.

More when I have the heart and the brainwidth.

It's really too bad more people don't follow Wil's Law.
