OK, guys, I’m going to share with you MY do over moment. If I’m being honest, I have about 5,284 do over moments that I could share…I’m more than a little accident/mix-up prone. But, since it’s summertime, and I’m sure many of us will be doing some traveling, my do over moment could also serve as a bit of advice for you all!
Several years ago, we were visiting my husband’s family in western Pennsylvania. We planned on visiting for a few days, then driving across the state to Hershey for a few days of family fun with the kids. So, we loaded up the kids and drove the 3+ hours to Hershey. Upon arriving in Hershey, we went straight to our hotel to check in. After the long drive, (at least for a 3 and 7 year old!) our hotel room was just what we needed.
So, since I had taken care of the reservation, I headed to the front desk and told the clerk we were checking in. He typed our name into the computer…and waited… Then, he typed our name into the computer again, and again, he waited… Then, he asked me for our confirmation number, which I had, because I’m prepared like that. So, he entered our number into the system and it immediately pulled up our reservation…FOR THE NEXT DAY! I (as the family vacation coordinator) had brought our family across the large state of Pennsylvania, during the summertime, to the popular Hershey, Pennsylvania…ON THE WRONG DAY!
So, panic begins to set in. As the visions of us sleeping in our car cross my mind, my panic level skyrockets. I mean, seriously, what if this hotel had no where for us to stay? After a little finagling on the computer, the kind man was able to find a room for us and all was well; we went on to have a lovely family vacation.
I will admit that my vacation planner reputation with my family, has taken a BIG hit. Just a few weeks ago, we were discussing our family vacation for this summer, four years later, and my husband may or may not have insinuated that it might be a good idea if I double check the dates of our hotel stays…and so I did. (And yes, everything was correct…)
But can you imagine how terrible it would have been if my poor planning had caused my family to miss this…
Or worst of ALL, this…
Yikes!! Always check your reservations, friends. Always. Check. Your. Reservations!
