A little irritation's inevitable when traveling; the key to handling it at the beginning of the week is (simply) patience. Letting a cranky reservation agent or an out-of-sorts companion ruin your good time just adds insult to injury. It's not your style, but try to be conservative midweek. Taking a risk now won't pay off in the long run. This weekend, however, it's easy to get whatever you want -- let your intuition guide you and you can't go wrong. You love pushing boundaries, so go for it.
