Being stranded in Hawaii is hardly a hardship

My sisters-in law came to visit for tea and we were discussing the article in the Advocate about Lorna Watkinson-Zimmer being stuck in Maui.

My sisters-in law came to visit for tea and we were discussing the article in the Advocate about Lorna Watkinson-Zimmer being stuck in Maui.

Our “soles” were very “sore” by her remarks about being stuck in Hawaii.

Does this woman not realize that being in Hawaii is the most wonderful place on Earth to be stuck in a $500-a-night hotel?

Why would she complain about not getting free food? There are lots of Wendy’s and McDonald’s fast food restaurants in Maui. I have been there myself.

Why did she not make the best of her longer vacation?

My son has repaired aircraft all over the world and it sometimes takes longer to get parts to a remote location.

If she is the owner of a store in Red Deer and was paid for a long time out of my taxpayer dollars, she is surely capable of paying a pittance for food.

Come on Advocate, don’t you have anything better to do than smear WestJet on our front page of Local News?
