My husband’s supposed flight to Bohol was yesterday. Unfortunately, he went back. Why? I made a mistake when I booked his flight. All the while we both thought that his schedule to fly to Bohol was yesterday, November 5, 2010 and his schedule to go back here in Manila will be on December 10, 2010 – a Friday. I booked his ticket online during the week that we were preparing for our move-out. Both of us were quite sure that the schedule was right. I even asked him to double check the e-ticket I printed. I don’t know if he did. My instinct was ticking me to check his ticket. But instead, I just always asked him if he kept the ticket properly. If only I followed my instinct, I should have discovered that instead of November 5, I booked him for November 3 :(. He only discovered it yesterday when he was already in the airport. When he called up to inform me, I thought he was just kidding me. There was only one flight yesterday and the schedule was in the morning. He was not able to catch it since he arrived at around 10 am for a 1300 flight. He had no choice but to buy another ticket for today’s flight.
I wasted few thousands for the invalid ticket and my husband wasted his time and effort 🙁 It was my fault (and his hehehe). It was our negligence that caused such waste. Lesson learned, always do a double or triple check when booking online 😀 It was an expensive lesson 😀 But all things work together for good to them that love God who are called according to His purpose.
