A few weeks back my friend, who was relocating to India, called me as soon as he boarded the airplane. I had seen him a few hours before, when he got into a cab with his girlfriend. They were both going to the airport. My friend talked non-stop about his girlfriend. When he got into the cab, little did he expect her to cry. But that is what happened. She cried. Tears were rolling down her cheek and he did not know what to do. So he thought like every other man who finds himself in such a situation. "How far is the frikking airport?".
I know what you are thinking! Men are insensitive. Don't generalize. I advise you to think twice. There are always exceptions. Take the case of my young friend. His friend was relocating to another country as part of her new assignment. On a direct flight, it takes less than two and a half hours that country. As you can see, it is not far away. Yet, he took all precautions to prevent her from crying. As a result, there was no crying. She reached the destination safely and settled well in her temporary residence for the next few weeks.
Naturally, I was curious like you to know what is the secret formula. So, I asked him. The answer was so obvious. But still, I wouldn't have figured it out.
The good-byes, check-in and take-off happened over SMS!
