Model Answer:
I do not usually get angry for small reasons and not one of the short-tempered persons who get angry easily for silly reasons. Yet I got very angry with my friends and I was so furious that I did not talk to them for some days. 

This occurred when I was in 7th semester in my university probably in the year 2010. I had a friend named Rummel who invited me and Stephen to visit his hometown after the term final. Three of us made our plan final and fixed the date for our journey. Since we were not in the same university, we stayed at different places of the city. 3 days before the scheduled date of our journey I called both of them from a local phone booth to be confirmed if the plan is still valid or not. They both told me they are looking forward to the visit and Rummel told me that he has already told his parents and relatives about our visit. 
I called my home that I will visit my friend’s hometown and that’s why my visit to them would be a bit delayed. They wished me a safe and pleasant journey.  I got my bags packed the night before our journey and as planned we would meet at the city station at 9.00 am. We planned to go there by train as we thought train journey would be more enjoyable than the bus journey. 
In the morning of the due date, I wake up early and checked if I have packed all the right stuff or not. Then I picked a taxi and went to the station at 7.30 am. I looked for my friends and found they are yet to come. Rummel was supposed to buy the train tickets and I could not find any one of them. I looked for them in every place of the station and to my dismay, they were nowhere to be found. In the meantime, I hear that the clock is ticking to announce that it is 10:00 am and I found 2/3 trains already departed. Initially, I was annoyed and when it was 11.30 am I got seriously frustrated and angry. I felt like a stupid and all of my anger started to grow up. I was so angry that I did not call my friends. I sat at the station for another 30 minutes to pacify my anger and then took a taxi to return home. 
They tried to call me to explain the reason they could not show up that morning and almost after 2 weeks they came to my room and explained that due to Stephen’s mother’s sudden and unexpected illness, he had to leave for his hometown that morning. They both thought that the other one has informed me about the cancellation of our tour. I told them that we are even now and I have no complaints about what happened that day.
