Help? Son stranded in San Francisco over Christmas!
Hi, Im a long time lurker and this is my first post. Im rather desperate. Im not even sure if this is where i should or can post this but I thought Id give it a shot. My 19 yr old son, after being a College exchange student in South Korea for the past 4 months was suppose to have returned here to South Dakota last night. Now due to the weather related air traffic snarl of the past few days the Airline(United) is telling him they cant get him home until TUESDAY!. To make matters worse, his lugguage is God knows where( they say it "went on")and he has no cell phone charger for his VERIZON cdm 8910 phone and his cell phone is now dead. Any ideas on how I can get a charger to him? We know NO ONE in San Francisco and we are not familiar with the area. Right now he is at a hotel near the airport. He looked for a place in the airport that sells chargers but could not find one for his phone. Its bad enough that we havent seen him for 4 months and he can't get home for Xmas but not to have a charged cell phone REALLY makes it difficult! Any one out there with suggestions? Id be forever grateful! UPDATE: According to the front desk at the hotel our son stayed in last night. He checked out this morning. He has not called us and his cell phone is off/dead. So..at this point we aren't sure where he is at/staying,if he is at the airport trying to get a standby flight or not. I guess we'll just have to stay loose and wait this situation out. I want to thank everyone who replied for all their help and great suggestions! :)
