And yet, we've all heard stories of being stuck in one or been stuck ourselves. We had a hundred car pile up here the other day. Everyone knew the roads were shite, everyone knew there was a greater possibility that an accident could occur, but I'll bet none of them banked on getting caught in something like that. Regardless, each and everyone of them had an expectation to make it to their destination. Accidents happen. Wether or not they could have been prevented is a good question.
If they cut all the trees down to prevent the cable car from getting hung up, perhaps it would negate the reasons people got on the cable car in the first place.
Did people or the proprietors know a storm was brewing, should people have been allowed on the cable cars? Was it a sudden squall, does this sort of thing typically happen? I'm sure the company will learn from this and install a communication system, or a better back up system.
My point is, while people have expectations of safety and having their plans fulfilled, we all have to deal with disappointment at times. In the last few weeks, there have been 4 disabled cruise ships. I've found the departure interviews interesting. Some people are blazing angry while others seemed to have found a reason to celebrate.
I go through spurts where I travel a lot. I now completely expect the plane I'm on to either be delayed or cancelled. Therefore I'm delighted when it's not.
See, it's all in the attitude.
