Default 3 hour flight delay

title says it all really. We got told in the gate too so I'm stuck.

My credit card just got cancelled by HSBC due to a fraudulent transaction - God bless those Americans - so I'm stuck with about 3 quid to my name, gate side at T5. Oh joy.

I'll be thinking of you as my weekend starts in 10 minutes. Surely they'll let you out of the gate?

If its any consolation my rather nice leather gladstone bag that I use as hand luggage broke in AMS last week. No way to fix it, so I ended up splashing out 200 large ones on a Tumi wheeled ruksack--precious little alternative.

I would also like to add, that I've not showered for 30 hours, need a shit and have just come off an overnight economy flight.
