what you were waiting for
and explain how you felt about it
About five years ago I visited several friends in Guiyang for a few days. At the end of my stay I got a taxi to the airport, checked in and made my way through airport security. I was booked onto a flight that was scheduled to depart from Guiyang at around three o’clock and arrive back in Xi’an after about two and a half hours. Shortly after I arrived in the departures lounge, I heard an announcement that my flight would be delayed due to bad weather and that I should stay in the departures lounger and await further information. Fortunately, I had my laptop with me so I was able to do some outstanding computer work while I waited. Throughout the afternoon I continued to hear announcements about the delay.
Finally, at about ten o’clock airport staff informed me that the plane wouldn’t be arriving until the next day and that I should book myself into the nearby airport hotel for the night. Once in my hotel room I had a shower and began getting ready for bed. I had only been in bed for a few minutes when there was a knock on the door. To my surprise a member of staff explained that I needed to return to the airport as my plane had finally arrived and would soon be departing for Xi’an. Finally, after a delay of more than ten hours, I boarded the flight in the early hours of the morning and began my journey back home.
When I think about this experience, I still feel a bit angry because planes kept delaying and I could do nothing about it. Also, I had that a mixed feeling that in front of Mother Nature, our human kind is so small and frail. We could build big planes but we can’t fight against the bad weather.
