A Day at Tampa International Airport

by Extreme John on June 11, 2009

It’s that crappy time of year again when my son heads to New York for a few weeks out of the summer, most people would probably enjoy the break, I hate it which is why I say it’s crappy.

One of the positive things that comes out of this time of year is that usually we leave extra early for the airport and kinda make an event out of it. He likes to eat at Carrabbas, which they recently added to the Tampa International Airport shuttle level.

I figured I would go a little crazy and Tweet some pictures with [intlink id="2236" type="post"]Uber Twitter[/intlink] through the different stages of our journey to the airport, I wasn’t able to tweet every picture I took so I decided to write a post about it and share some of the [intlink id="25" type="category"]pictures[/intlink] here. Hope you enjoy my pictures from our day at Tampa International Airport (Airport Code: TIA).

I decided the first picture I would tweet would be a picture of my son and I in the Insane Limos custom Asanti Escalade Limo.

People sometimes question why I wanted the name Insane Limos for our Limousine business, those people usually haven’t seen the limos. Oh yeah, you can bring luggage too. Picking someone special up from the Tampa International Airport? Surprise them with one of the most Elite Escalade Limos on the planet 727-584-8888. You can see the Insane Limos fleet in these TV Commercials.

We watched a little bit of Family Guy on the Apple TV, we usually don’t let our kids watch Family Guy but with my son getting older and him leaving I felt like doing something different, not to mention I like answering the questions he asks.

A silly picture but I wanted to take it

Here’s just one of the many reasons I can’t stand flying Southwest, and I certainly hate bringing anyone to the airport to fly Southwest. It’s great for Souhwest Airlines but it sucks for the customer.

We had a quick lunch at Carrabbas, which by the way was the only place to provide excellent service the entire time we were at the Tampa International Airport. I could easily get into a story about the two slugs working he Nathans counter by the C Terminals at TIA but it wouldn’t even be worth it. Thanks Carrabbas for an excellent lunch and tremendous service.

After eating at Carrabbas we needed to stop and grab a new pair of headphones for my son’s iPod, I can’t remember the name of the store but it’s pretty convenient they have all entertainment type stuff that you can grab real quick before your flight. Anyways, here is a picture of a girl that has pins in her skin that she can screw diamonds or whatever other kind of body art onto, you really need to look at this picture.

Another reason I hate Southwest…. Is it really that hard to just let customers pick their damn seats.

After the boarding it was time to head into what seemed like a ghost town, the Tampa International Airport flight arrivals pick up area.

Heading back over the Causeway back towards Clearwater, otherwise known as 60. It was overcast today, normally this picture would have been very bright with some pretty water behind it, not so much.

On the way back I had the limo stop so I could use the restroom real quick, those beers at Carrabbas kicked in if you know what I mean. I can’t just walk into a place and use the restroom and leave so I decided to do it (almost) old school with a 32, instead of a 40 since they don’t have those here. Sorry no Colt 45 here, as much as the InBev acquisition pisses me off I am still a Bud Light drinker.

Hating the fact that the little guy is gone, we would have watched UFC 99 together this Saturday. :(

Thank you. Yeah I have never seen it before either, she said it was a “simple process” that they did at some Microderm Abrasion place. She also added that it's a very new process hat is still in “testing” kinda scary.

Hi John, I think Tampa International Airport is far much better than the airports in Pakistan. We have a dream for one like this.

Hello John, Your son is becoming bigger and bigger, I think you want to give him more freedom. It's only my suggestion.

I love the limo pics on the inside too.

Glad you liked the pics, the Southwest lines are easy to get because they always exist, I could easily write 10 Southwest Airlines rants.
