Mad dash to the airport

Whats worse than waking up at 4:30am? Not a lot, but try this: waking up at 4:30, a message instead of the taxi you booked at 4:45 to say he would be there by 5, a call at 5 to say he'll be there in "5 Minutes", and a taxi that arrives, finally, 28 minutes late. All this followed by a stressful drive, continually looking at your watch, then a mad run through the airport. I'm at the gate now, nauseus and short me breath, 5 minutes to board, but no confidence my bag will make it to Madrid. Thanks to VIP/ABC taxis!
