Somebody wake me up from this disaster. So...it happened. As I am typing this, I Missed a Flight for the very first time in my life. Also, the most ugly part of it all is that I am the one who have to pay for the damage. I am pretty much calm now so here are 5 tips I would like to share with you so that you'd be able to keep your cool too.
So, my limousine bus from point A to point B got stuck in traffic. We were so behind schedule. I remember 10 minutes before the closing time, we were still 19kms away from destination. My check-in counter closed at 11:40 this morning and the bus that I was in arrived 5 minutes pass that. Still trying to put up a fight, I swear I run so fast to check what I can do. Not much, apparently. I went to the information center and asked what I can do. She said check the counter to see if there's anyone there and ask if I can still enter but when I went, no one. LITERALLY no one. Nanghina ako mga bes.
2. TRY TO ACCEPT IT.
Let's face it. The reason we're agonizing over this thing is that we know it's not the airline's fault. Because if it were, you'll probably not as problematic as you are right now. Accept that you've miscalculated everything and from there, try to move on! I mean, I guess I'm lucky that the damage is just around 400$ and that I can earn that again when I come back but for those of you who have lost double or triple the amount, I feel your pain. I mean, this is no way easy for me! I booked one year before my flight just to be able to find the best deal only for me to blow it up like this. Goodness gracious. NO.
Eat your heart out, girl! I mean like I told you, there's nothing much you can do about it. Eat!
Making a mistake is not cool. Repeating the same mistake is another. Promise to yourself that this would be the last time you would miss a flight ever again. EVER!
5. SHARE TIPS TO EVERYONE.
I was calmed down by a blog post I read online so here's to hoping this post would calm you too.
