Mom is Here!!!
July 30, 2009 | In Musings |
My mother has finally arrived! As usual, Negros Navigation is such a pain in the butt. Aside from the fact that they didn’t give their passenger an estimated time of arrival (ETA), they port and ticketing office here in Bacolod didn’t gave me the exact time they were advised by the vessel’s captain.
Earlier this morning, I called them and they told me that the vessel will be arriving around 2pm. Then when my husband called again, they told him that it will arrive around 5 to 7pm. So, just to make sure, my friend Mommy Dhadha helped me called them back again, they told her the boat will arrive around 4 to 5pm. So, immediately dressed up and so as my children, we rushed to the port immediately but when we arrived there, they say the vessel will arrive at 7pm! Isn’t that irritating?
So we waited from 5pm until 7pm, two long hours in the cold port of Banago! Then guess what, at 7pm, they told us that the vessel left Iloilo port at 6:30pm, so that means they will arrive around 8:30 to 9pm! Grrrr… We waited another two hours until the vessel was able to disembark their passenger around 9pm! I was almost about to freak-out!!
Anyway, it already happened and I could not cry over spilled milk right? I am just glad that mom is here…safe and sound! That is all that matter to me. Thank God.
