Fly the Friendly Skies... On Our Timeline Only, Please

I was recently handed a stack of mail that is still being delivered to my mother's house. Among these items were several mailings from Delta SkyMiles, one of which informed me that I had better hurry and use my SkyMiles, because they were expiring at the end of last December.

Well, that's great, cause I opened the piece of mail like a month ago.

So today, I finally got around to sending a letter of thanks to Delta, which went like this:

Dear SkyMiles,

Thank you for taking my sky miles away at the end of December 2006. I guess they must have been getting moldy or something, so I'm glad you were looking out for me. I really appreciate it. So much so, that I think I will try NOT to fly with you as much as possible.

Sincerely,
Sra

Maybe Delta saw Punch Drunk Love and thought that too many people might try to amass SkyMiles as a form of currency, much to their ultimate ruin, thus they decided to instill an expiry date on the miles.

Way to go, Delta. Glad I flew to Germany and back twice and have nothing to show for it. Well, except all those great memories and photos. I guess in the end no one can take that away.
