Well, I am a meticulous person. I like to schedule my day the night before, which helps me to manage time efficiently. But sometimes, things don’t go as planned because of dense circumstances. A similar thing has happened to me recently, and here I would like to talk about an important journey that was delayed.
About a year ago, this vital journey was when I was travelling to Gurgaon to attend my best friend’s wedding party. My best friend wanted me to arrive well ahead of the party schedule.
So I scheduled my journey and took a metro from Noida at 4 p.m. to reach the wedding party location 3 hours before the scheduled time. I was quite excited because I was incharge of hosting and assisting the guests at the party. Unfortunately, the metro stopped in between the tunnel. Everyone was astonished. I asked the co-passengers, but they were also clueless. After 1 hour, the metro driver announced that the engine of the metro had broken down and it was going to take a few more hours to get it repaired.
I was in a dilemma about what to do as my cell phone network was also not working in the tunnel. Finally, after waiting for 3 hours, the driver was able to fix the issue.
When I reached the venue, it was already 7 p.m, and the party had already started. But I reached out to my best friend and explained everything. Eventually, she understood, and I was happy that I could attend her wedding party and resume my duty of assisting the guests.
