What a Day for Ian Poulter (Live on Twitter)

 

Ian Poulter is on Twitter (@ianjamespoulter) and you know that it’s Ian tweeting, not some publicist. Some of his posts are pretty comical. Today has not been his day and his fans are helping experience it live as he tries to get back to the United States. If you’re not meant to head out, you’re really not. And it’s clearly true of this day. But, he clearly knows what is the right way to "bash" British Airways without being mean. And he knows that a sincere thank you goes a long way. I don't know how his day will end, but read his posts (if you want the start to now read bottom top).
  • Water still pouring into cabin. Oh dear I don't think we will be taking off today. Hahaha

Well, the good news is that Ian made it home to his family. But, it looks like my praise of how patient he's been through this may be waning. No clubs and he's still waiting for British Airways to contact him. Good luck, Ian.
