A Holiday Problem!

Now I can say that the trip to Australia was the biggest mistake that I've ever made. It began so innocently - just me, my luggage and a little white ticket for a plane...
The first setback was that I couldn't find keys to my house. I was searching them for about fifteen minutes. It was 3:45. My plane was to depart at 4 o'clock. I was driving as fast as I could and luckily I wasn't late. When I saw my seat I was disappointed and really upset. I was to sit next to the man who was looking and behaving like a pig! I don't smoke so I chose the seat in a non-smoking compartment... But some people were smoking next to the doors between those two areas. The smoke from cigarettes was irritating my poor eyes! But this was just the beginning. The real nightmare started when I was at the airport in Australia. I was crying because somebody probably stole my luggage! It was my suitcase where I had everything I needed. When I was walking around the airport I understood that I lost my bag with my passport. Then I had to stay at the airport! I couldn't go to my hotel and (what was the worst) I couldn't even go back home! Luckily my luggage turned out to be mistakenly taken by the women whose suitcase was the same as mine. But I was still without the passport. The airport security instructed me to stay at one place during looking for my bag by their people. But I had to go to the toilet! When I was in the bathroom I locked up in one of the cabins and I couldn't get out. I was screaming and hitting the door and nothing happened. After twenty minutes the old cleaning lady heard me and helped me to open the cabin. I was so stressed. I was waiting at the airport for almost 2 hours before the stewardess from my plane called to me and said that I left my bag on my seat! I felt so stupid when she appeared and gave me my bag with documents and everything. What a shame! I promise that I won't travel by plane anymore!
