I flirted my way through security check and got a new passport
OK, so today was quite action filled!
I got my flight from Gothenurg to Stockholm and yes supposed to make my flight to Vegas.
I know that I’m talking for a lot of poker players when I say, we are often out in the last second and like to gamble. Yes, I like to gamble not just at poker, but for some reasons I naturally just like gambling with time. Some people ask me “How do you think?” SO I will explain. If I earn 30min extra each time before a flight and then make it in the last second. I will lose the flight 1 out of 20 times but at the same time I earn 10 hours of waiting. I take that. I like to sleep on long flights and I decided to stay awake all night playing online poker and packing before my morning flight to Vegas via Stockholm.
Well, I got everything packed in time and made the flight to Stockholm. Somehow, absentminded as I am, I put the passport in the pocket of the chair in front of me… and my passport decided to make a trip back to Gothenburg alone.
Oviss om det bortsprungna passet, I went to have a Swedish Fika in Stockholm. 1h 30min before the flight to Vegas, I realized that I didn’t have my passport.
I talked to Norweigan airlines staff and they said that it would be impossible for me to sort out a new passport before my flight unless I’m the Quickest Sprinter in the World.
They suggested me to wait for the passport to be sent back with a flight to Stockholm tomorrow…
My thoughts went ´Hell no – I’m not taking that bad beat´. so I quickly calculated that if I would RUN to the police I might get lucky and make it and they could later call me the quickest sprinter in the World lol. Definitely worth a shot!
A threadmill pass later – I made it to the police station and without any sort of legitimation on me, I knew it wouldn’t be easy to sort out a new passport.
I told them I have to get my flight to Las Vegas in 1,5h- PLEASE help me.
Well, they asked me some security questions and he said that I’m running well. He never did this before but he would give me one. I got a splitter new PINK passport.
Only this PINK beauty was worth the sweat
I ran back to the airport, made a new ESTA and made the flight in the last second! I must say that I ran well. Literally!
Now I’m on the flight to Las Vegas and I feel like the best sprinter in the World lol. I feel like I will run well in the poker marathon that is World Sweries Of Poker 2016.
