400th

I did not realise the previous post was the 400th Post on this blog till I pressed the publish button,  When I had started blogging I have never thought I will be reaching this milestone ever, But here I am. There are a lot of people who have made this possible, Each one of you who click on the link to reach this place.

Those who manage to reach here and then spend time Reading whatever I write which most of the times does not make sense to me even, but kudos to you all having the patience to read it all .. and THEN also showing more patience in pressing the like button or commenting on the post .. AND THAT IS APPRECIATED EVEN MORE, That is not all THEN MOST OF YOU COME BACK AGAIN and AGAIN to the same old blog 🙂  Now believe me I am very very thankful to each one and Everyone from the bottom of my heart, Hats off to each of you.  If it would have been possible I would have personally MET each of you and given my personal Thanks to you all.

Please do accept my sincerest Thanks. I am really blown over by all the love and care I have received over the time from everyone.  I consider myself to be the luckiest person in the world to have so many beautiful people around me.

Blogging has been a wonderful experience for me over the last 3 years although lately I have had some bad memories of it too, Especially because they involved people whom I did think as a friend, But the word Friend has a different meaning in the Virtual world. I have come to realise that.

This is a happy moment for me so I will not spend more time on it and waste your time too 🙂

Once again Thank you Everyone ……

Right now all that is over, you all can come down to earth and Read what I am about to write .. WHAT you thought it would be easy getting all the thanks and Walking away … NOPE I ain’t going to let any of you that easy.. after all its the 400th post so might as well make use of the moment and make you Read another post he he he he he ….

I am sure every human has a lot of things that makes them mad or angry, in my case there are umpteen, I am spoilt you see so I get mad at lot of thing, One thing that makes me mad is the air travel. Its not the whole travel as such , I don’t have any problems sitting in a plane, going to different places it’s the start of the travel which makes me angry and the fact that airlines don’t treat us properly , DO THEY..

Now have a think, especially everyone who went on an AIR travel recently or anything, They make us come 3 or 2 hours early , I mean we drive like mad always under pressure hurry hurry , or we might miss the flight, There might be traffic so lets leave a bit early , and if there are road works then we start even earlier ..

We have been up not just those 3 hours early but a couple of hours more as we got up and got our stuff ready and what not .. So we have already been up for lets say 5-6 hours , half the day we spend awake has already gone, Most places of work have hours of on average 8 hours .. so you have spent that much time already working, just because you have to travel and have to reach the airport that many hours prior.

Now compared to the people at the check in desk, They have yet to start their work so they are all calm and relaxed.. While we reach the desk in a rush rush mode huffing and puffing because of the weight we have , especially we Indians .. if the airlines say 20kg allowed we have to make sure and try to take at least 40kg..  Any way we reach the desk the ever so helpful desk people all fresh and ready to take on the world .. calm us down every so kindly “Sir don’t worry, you are fine , there is plenty of time , Calm down .. it’s all right you got ages yet .. sit down”

But you are always in a panic mode , as if the plane will just leave , to be sure you decide to ask the staff and they ever so calmly tell you “noooo sir”.. dont panic..

The clock is ticking , the notice board still says “Gates not open”, or “Gates will open in 50 minutes”.. the countdown begins..  and then someone on the Tanoy announces and your flight is announced .. OH MY GOD .. the same staff are schizophrenic ..  they go mad .. HURRY UP .. HURRY UP You will miss your flight ..

You feel like saying “HOLD ON .. I have been here since THREE HOURSSSSSSSSSSS…” How The hell will I miss the flight ..

Another curious thing is the flight you have to take is always on a gate that is farthest , they tell you gate number is 68 …  WHERE THE HELL is GATE ONE.. I have never seen that gate ever.. I have travelled a lot , Domestic flights , international flights .. Where is GATE ONE… Nope never seen it ..

Then starts the long walk , the mile long walk to the gate, I have a question for the airlines ARE THEY trying to save ON PETROL .. putting their plane so far away .. and make us walk .. for that mile to reach it .. Why can’t they bring it nearer , To Gate no. 1.. look at all the time it will SAVE.. so much energy saved toooo

Another awful thing happens , the one thing that just makes me more MAD and I hate it .. The buggies they use, Those golf buggies that they use to ferry passengers, there is me walking to that frigging Gate 68, huffing and panting with my hand luggage which weighs a TON by now .. and this buggy goes by and they make the people sit the other way round .. JUST TO make you more angry , because you can see the SMUG faces of these people .. GETTING their RIDE and you are walking and There is STILL HALF A MILE TO GO YETTTTTTTTTTTttttttt

Finally you reach the plane, putting your hand luggage in the over head compartment is another DRAMA for there is always some idiot who has got more than one hand luggage and has used the space that is above your seat , which is supposed to have been reserved FOR YOU.. the person who has paid so much money for the ticket which comes with luggage space, You have to find another space, to see the hate filled eyes of the person whose space you are about to pinch.  But thankfully today is your lucky day no one has come and asked you to empty the space .. the air hostesses are kind they help everyone get adjusted , ready to take off..

Right then Enough for today .. Rest I will post next time what happens when the aeroplane takes off and when you reach the destination .. especially if you have booked a posh hotel at the destination 🙂

Once again Thank you so much for always coming over to read what I write .. and for being with me in this journey that has come to be of more than 3 years now and 400+ posts ..

Thank you all..

Weekend is coming , have a great weekend everyone ..
