What if you then realized that you HAD put it on their calendar? Tags: See more , See less 8 Answer Add Tags Answer Interview Answer 1 Answer ▲ 9 ▼ My response to this situation was that I would just allow them to vent briefly while scheduling another flight. I told my interviewer that no purpose would be served by pointing out that the Consultant was wrong and I HAD put the flight on the calendar; the person is obviously upset and arguing wouldn't solve anything. Obviously, if the Consultant decided to pursue action for my "mistake" it would quickly become apparent that I hadn't made one.
