Well, I am a very good planner and whenever I have to go out I like to make a full schedule so that I can do my all tasks timely. A few years back, I had to go to Patna for some official work. I had to catch the train from New Delhi to Patna at 2:00 PM. Therefore, I thought it would be fine to catch the bus from my hometown at 6:00 AM in the morning and I will catch the train. Because it takes around 5 hours’ to reach New Delhi. But there was a catch, I had to collect tickets from another city and therefore, I had to stop there. Unfortunately, the person who had to hand over the train ticket to me arrived half an hour late after I reached the bus station and the next bus came around half an hour late and I was about an hour delayed from my schedule. But I was hopeful that I would reach the railway station on time. To make the matters worse, there was an accident on the road and traffic jam further delayed the journey and I missed the train timing. But one thing good happened was that I got a ticket for another train which left at 5:30 pm. In the end, it was a smoother journey and I reached my destination by the next morning.
