30. Not really
But I've never turned down a trip I needed to make (business) or wanted to make (vacation). I think it's the "Hey, what's holding this up?" thing.
Funny thing - we were leaving Austin for Houston and on back to Tampa one time. Weather in Austin was OK but there was a big storm just west of Houston and that was delaying our takeoff. Alot of people were getting antsy about the flight. I had an empty seat next to me and a flight attendant sat down saying "I'll sit by you, you look so calm." Yeah, me and the three Bloodys I brought on board. Turns out the captain said he wouldn't make the flight if he didn't have to, get off now if you want. About 3/4 of the passengers bailed. We took another flight next morning.
