I could have posted on 30th January, 2007 but better late than never.
When a PM in blore called me for an onsite offer,with great enthu I started on last week Thursday to blore from tvm by train leaving my beloved aunt and uncle and the house they rented to me.Also I found this weekend as a perfect time to go hyd and meet my fiancee.Guess what, I immediately booked SpiceJet to hyd from blore on Friday itself and then return on sunday.I reached blore on friday morning 6:30Am and by 7:30 AM I am in ECC.
After refreshing I started at 1:30PM to Forum, shopped for myself and bought 2 gifts for my fiancee and then went to Airport to catch the flight and landed in hyd by 8:00PM,late by 2 hrs.Then checked in at friends house and started to see my fiancee at their house on Saturday morning.
I am very excited about meeting her and her father after a long time that too at their home.Saturday went well.We talked for long hours sitting side-by-side, went together to shop and had dinner together at a restaurant and then left her back at her home and started to my friends place.
Sunday morning again I went to her house and I was really unhappy as I have to leave to blore by afternoon.I really didnt like to leave her but had to move on. So unwillingly I sat on my father-in-laws scooter and headed to hyd airport.I bid good bye to him and went to SpiceJet check-in counter.
I was taken aback when I found that all the SpiceJet counters were empty! The flight SG219 to blore is scheduled at 00:45AM. I overlooked it as 12:45PM :-((. what to do? I again ran after counters of all other airlines enquiring about next flight to blore with lowfare. Finally stopped at Go Air to buy a blore ticket for next day (monday 8:20AM) and again bought a ticket spending 4250 INR :-(( and then went back to my fiancees home.They were shocked to see me back and learned the mistake I did. but what else can they do.They cant blame my mistake and hence they said OK. but the sad part is that I should not eat or sleep at their home because we were yet to be engaged.So finally decided to cancel Go Air ticket as well and start by bus that night itself on Sunday.My father-in-law bought one bus ticket from APSRTC for me and said bye to me at 8:00PM Sunday.
Then started my travails. The pain of leaving her coupled with this stupid mistake and the thoughts of spending whole night in bus made me real sick. But what to do. No other go.That bus was going too slow.I boarded at 8:00 PM Sunday and it reached Majestic at 10:45 AM Monday. Then I rushed to city bus stand to catch Volvo to E-city,reached ECC by 12:15 PM and reported to my PM at 1:30 PM Monday.
I did this silly mistake otherwise this weekend would have been more memorable for pleasant reasons!
Positives:  Learned good lesson to be more careful about details.
 Spent few more hours with my fiancee.
Negatives:  Lost 2,600 INR ( SpiceJet fare to blore 2000 + Go Air cancellation charges 600)
 3650 INR ( Fare 4250 – Cancellation charges 600) got locked in with Go Air as they issued Credit Note instead of returning money.
 Suffered for more than 12 hrs in bus.
 Troubled my fiancee and her father.He plied me from Miyapur to Airport amidst irritating traffic without knowing that I wud be back on the same road after him :-((
Nevertheless, I learnt a good lesson! Time to be more careful!!!
Now I am staying in ECC room#109, am looking forward to work on this new project and awaiting onsite in 30 more days!
