It's crappy and there's nothing to eat or see.

It is the only airport where I can buy Cardinals gear, which is a plus.

I have an old TV that I stopped using because it would randomly shut off every ten or fifteen minutes. I could turn it right back on but it was annoying.

This weekend I wanted to watch NFL playoffs and college basketball on Saturday afternoon followed by NFL and hockey in the evening so I brought the old TV back out and put it next to the one I replaced it with in the living room. I hooked the OTA antennae to it and put NFL on there and basketball on the other TV.

After a few hours I realized that it hadn't shut off once. Later I plugged in the NES Classic to one of the HDMI ports and fired that up so I could play some Excite Bike while halfway following a movie on the other TV and sure enough it started shutting down every so often. It turns out that the TV works fine as long as I don't use the HDMI ports. Weird.

I worked from home yesterday and got to the office this morning to find that somebody stole the charging cable for my phone from my desk between Monday night and this morning. It has been hours and I'm still mad about it and considering going from desk to desk looking for the jackwagon who stole my cable.

Do I have other cables at home? Sure.

Was the cable expensive? Of course not.

Am I still ready to search this building from top to bottom to find the asshat who took my cable? Absolutely.

Go to the hospital gift shop and get another one

Good chance it was the cleaners. Always blame the lowest paid staff first.

I bet it was the CEO, they are always stealing from the workers.

I wouldn't put it past our old CEO, the one who sold the company!

I didn't need a cable immediately now that I have the new phone (still loving the Nokia 6.1 by the way). This phone will actually stay charged all day unlike my two year old Pixel when I had to buy the cable at the hospital gift shop because the Pixel would only last about ten minutes. I just brought one of the spares I have at home into the office this morning. I still have one at the office, one in my backpack and at least two at home. I have a third cable at home but when I tired to use it, my phone wasn't charging. I'm not sure if it was the cable or the brick I had it plugged into but I had literally just pulled the cable out of the packaging so I'm thinking it isn't the cable. Either way, I have plenty of other bricks to try from over the years!
