Since there's no "Told you so" thread I thought it will fit nicely here, because I had to really bite my tongue yesterday not to blurt it out to my SO, who waited until now, 4 days before his trip to the other end of the world, to book an hostel room. And was complaining that there wasn't much left, and only in pricier hostels
I vowed to never actually do the "told you so/could have told you/now that wasn't very smart, was it?" since it never, ever helps and I would hate for someone to do it for me but gosh, what was he thinking!
Valuable lesson learned, never leave him this responsibility for our vacations, and that I'm still able to speak 'other end of the world' (Brazil, I used to live there) to sort out his hostel reservation.
And since I'm already telling on him, he only has less than a fifth of his holiday planned (doesn't know what, when or how) ><.
I could never travel like that, what if every airlines are booked for the next 3 weeks or when you get there all the hostels are full or closed or what if Godzilla?
