Sure 'nuff

In summary:

-- missed my first leg, booked through work, through Expedia
-- Expedia won't help, sending me to United (tried 3 times)
-- United won't help, sending me to Expedia (tried 5 times, 2 of which I was dropped)
-- United wants $282 change fee, which I almost paid, until they dropped me

Ended up buying:

-- Southwest, Oakland to Portland. Through Southwest. (better deal than through Expedia, who's now on my shitlist)
-- Alaska Portland to SFO. Through Alaska. Also a better deal than Expedia.

So in conclusion, United and Expedia can now blow me. I was prepared to pay $100 or so for my stupidity/laziness (remembered the flight's arrival time as its departure time, and never double-checked), but $282 and 8 phone calls ultimately ending in failure? Wasn't prepared for that.

Expedia no longer gets my business.
