A man named Mark was supposed to pick up his wife, Sarah, from one of the most popular airports in the world at around 9 pm, but due to a miscommunication, he arrived 10 minutes late. Sarah had landed early and had tried calling Mark, but he didn’t see the calls until 10 minutes later because he was gaming with his headset on.

When Mark finally realized Sarah was calling him, he picked up and told her he would be there soon. He finished his online match before leaving the house 10 minutes later. He didn’t think an extra 10 minutes would really matter in the grand scheme of things.

This person commented, “Yep, tons of my international flights from China leave on time and arrive late. It’s pretty common and someone would only know if they’re glued to their phone on a flight tracker. Just plan to be on time and stay later if necessary. It’s not as deep as most people are making it out to be.”
