    Thank you South African Airways for losing all my show material. We have now been in the USA for 5 days, with nothing to show for it. It might be delivered on Saturday, three days into the 4 day show in Raleigh, North Carolina.
    When life gives you onions, make a quarter pounder.

    I am really sorry to hear that, and I imagine there is really no recourse against them for the delay?

    Marius, sorry to hear your misfortunes. I can't beleive it is five days later, that is unacceptable. Air travel and shipping are my pet peeves ... as a frequent flyer I pay good money for a service and then get told "sorry about your luggage" or "maybe tomorrow for your shipment" . Could any other business get away this? I know you booked a Kudu but we are fresh out ...oh well, maybe in five days one will be around to hunt. Short rant ends.

    Yup. Make a quarter pounder out of that onion and show those prospective clients how creative and versatile you are!

    They will say "that is a pro I want to be with when the shit hits the fan "!

    Hoping the best for you in a less than ideal situation.

    I'm sorry this happened to you Marius, but good to see you're keeping a sense of humor about the situation.
