Dear TDU, I am with you, in fact my family is with you. We always plan well in advance and execute that also. My husband will say that we shall go early to the station and sit there instead of sitting at home. When we go on a trip, we plan every thing well and make arrangements. I do the packing fully, hubby dear cannot even put his clothes in a suitcase. It had helped us tremendously to be in order. My sister is just the opposite of me. She will always catch the train as it is about to leave. She will book tickets just 2 or 3 days before, that too in the peak season. But she will never get tensed, the others will only get tensed and tear their hair in despair as she expects them to do everything for her and drop her at the station in that hurry. But she has never missed a train and will never grumble if her plan does not work out. She is so different, once she did not even look up by which train she is to travel and was getting ready for 9 o'clock train while she was to travel by 7.30 train. Then she hurriedly got together everything and caught an auto and boarded the train as it started to move. She was cool, only poor bil nearly had a heart attack. She is very touchy about this subject and will flare up if somebody tells her to be on time and plan things. My hubby plans well and executes but goes wild completely when something goes wrong which cannot be controlled by humans. He expects that everything should go as per his plan and when the opposite happens he goes out of control and makes life for others hell. I am dead against this, we can plan but if and when it cannot be implemented, we should train our minds to quickly find an alternative without getting tensed.
