Honestly, I am not a forgetful person as I tend to keep everything in my possession at the right place. Having said that, I too am a human and tend to forget things when I leave from home in haste or when I am stressed.
One such incident happened when I had to leave for Bengaluru to fulfill a work commitment. It so happened that I was supposed to leave home by 8 am to get onboard my train, but the schedule went haywire and I was at home till 5 past 8. As a result, I left home expeditiously oblivious to the fact that I forgot my train ticket at home.
The realisation happened, when I saw the TC arrive in the train to check the tickets. I panicked and didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know what to do. Although the ticket was booked online, it was done by my office management team and I didn’t want to approach them as that could probably tarnish my image. Luckily, I received a call from my work friend who had access to that account and she logged in and sent me a copy of the ticket via whats app. At last, I could save face due to my friend, otherwise the situation had really become troublesome and inconvenient due to my folly.
