"Oh my goodness! You get in at 11:45pm!"
"But I leave after work, mom."
"But so late! That's so late!"
"But I don't have to take Wednesday off."
"Oh. Oh. And it's about an eight hour flight..."
"Six hours if you ignore the whole time change thing."
"...so I guess that makes sense. Okay. But you don't get home until 9:53pm on Monday! You'll be so tired!"
"Yes. We're all about the cheap ticket here, mom."
"Is that why you make 50 stops on the way there and back?"
"Yep. Cheap. Ticket."
"I'm sure they would have had a non-stop flight for you."
"They did. I was looking at cheap. We're all about cheap here."
"Well, I guess we all have our priorities."
"Yes. And mine is cheap. Inexpensive. As close to zero dollars as possible."
"Are you checking a bag?"
"Are you kidding me?!"
