hebcal is enough of a pet peeve! i dont understand why app store doesnt have a good hebrew calendar like google play does
All my hebcal dates are on my regular calendar on my phone.
I'm not who you think I am.

A few months ago I booked a wonderful romantic getaway for thanksgiving weekend November 20-24 with the mrs, with great air fares (watched for weeks) and a 4 night price matched stay (with Citi prestige concierge for 25% off in addition to the price match 25% off) at the best hotel at the intended location.
Realized today that thanksgiving weekend is nov 28. Now I gotta figure out how to unwind it all :)! 10s of hours of meticulous planning, but never checked the official calendar (hebcal is my go to page :()
If I were you I would keep it. All you lose is one day of work, while you gain much less crowds wherever you're going, much better pricing, much less chance of crowded and cancelled flights, with more rebooking options if something goes wrong.

So tell DW you did it on purpose. And then the following week show her all the articles of millions sleeping at the airport when AA cancelled their flights.  ;D

I Booked 2 consecutive flights on JetBlue (Mosaic). I decided take the 2nd one, but forgot to cancel the 1st one. I remembered when my phone notified me that it had just taken off!

I immediately called the Mosaic line feeling really stupid, but they were able to cancel and refund as it was still in their system.

Booked an AA flight using Avios but forgot to put in the date and just booked for that day. Didn't find out until at the airport 2 weeks later that the flight was 2 weeks before...

There is an idea for a new thread.

I know there are ways to save it and I hope I can get it. Being lazy before is giving me extra work now

Biggest mistake is that we still call this a game
