Ok, this is not turning out to be a good trip!! Beginning in Providence, my suitcase was overweight so they told me to take somethings out or pay $90(!!!!!!) so I took some stuff out out and stuffed it in my large purse, making it weight a ton!! Then, at the gate, they made the announcement that all the bins were full on the plane, so I had to check one of my carry ons, making a mad dash to make sure I had all my "purse" stuff in the right bag! Then, the plane was pulling away from the gate and a man behind me had a heart attack - back to the gate.....they took him off and got him medical help. I hope he is ok. I get off the plane in Charlotte and realize that I have left my Rome boarding pass, my cell and my passport in the seatpocket in front of me. (the woman sitting in front of me had her seat back the whole time and I could hardly move!). They won't let me back on the plane but they sent someone to retrieve it. Whew!!!! Last, but not least, I have lost my cane/seat in the Charlotte airport. Lord, I hope the trip improves from here!!!!!!!!!!
