It's sooooo easy to get upset, lose control, say things we wish we didn't. Even when warranted, still pause, instead of reacting.
Normally if it's just because of weather, airlines don't always put you up in hotel etc when miss a flight. Mechanical error, yes indeed they put you up.
I missed my connecting flight through no fault of my own. I was in a completely different city of my departure. I didn't get upset. I just went to talk to them for them to handle it. They told me they don't always do this.
In my head, I'm thinking, "what the what". The rain was horrendous where I had just left, plane couldn't take off. They are going to put me up
Not only did they put me up in a beautiful hotel, but gave me 3 meal vouchers. I was thinking great, 3? It was already evening and I was departing in the morning only one meal left. It was a great dinner meal. I loved those vouchers for my dinner because we all know hotel food is not inexpensive.
She said you are so nice and I can't believe you are not upset, thanks for understanding. For me I don't get upset without figuring out what to do first. Doesn't mean I never get annoyed. I just pause first. And give them a big smile and several nods of understanding, lol.
So next time things are unexpected and don't go your way, Pause and have positive thinking.
