Haha. I know you love United. You should be their spokesperson. I wouldn't expect them to reimburse me, though I would want them to.
Had a fight earlier this year (Virgin - not United) from Dallas to NYC, there was bad weather. Flight circled for hours and then landed in DC. Their solution (even though the weather had ended and they lied about that to all of the passengers) was to wait three hours and then put us on a BUS to NYC. It was one of the most enraging experiences of my entire life. The worst part was that I knew exactly what they were doing two hours before we landed and they were stringing everyone along about taking back off (even they they unloaded the plane). I knew they were out of gas and there was no way they were paying thousands or tens of thousands to refuel the plane, but I did at least think they would fly us out in the morning on a shuttle.
I was very disappointed to say the least. They also sent me an email in the middle of all of this that I can cancel my flight until midnight (this was at like 1130) and the link / process didn't work and it couldn't actually be cancelled. It was a series of dog shit moves.
Rant concluded. But I could start back up whenever anyone needs me to.
