Only emotional people get angry over nothing, words should never make anyone angry, they are just words. We all live in the Present and not the past, if you do not know your own history and ancestors, you are lost and confused. And when someone points out that you are lost, you get angry over nothing.

If you were driving towards the desert and someone kindly told you that you are going the wrong direction, you do not get mad do you?. No, you say thank you.

Get real you emotional baggage, irate jerks who verbally abuses others are not tolerated here in the US, try this at any airport and the TSA will strip you naked and molest your nasty hole, this is a real fact.

Gee, all airlines have policies for cancelled flights etc. why waste your energy fighting over nothing, they do accommodate their clients, customer satisfaction and reputation matters to corporate businesses, you lack the experience and only spew garbage. Politeness always earns extra rewards, I personally have gotten many coupon just for being well mannered.

Only stupid people stress over nothing, Real Tongans do not have emotions. Sad you people have hypertension and high blood pressure just from stressing, it's a fact, diabetic, high blood pressure and all unhealthy traits.

Real Tongans were very healthy with very fit bodies.

In psychology, we examine the action that had occurred and find the very root that was the cause of the thoughts that later manifested in to the actions which took place. This is a simple analogy of finding out "why human beings do the thing that they do".

So let's examine shall we.

1. US based Tongans traveled to Fiji and encountered some difficulties with their planned travel arrangements.

2. They approach the News agency or vice versa to whine and vent off their frustration.

3. They whine about the inconveniences, which is typical in travelling and boast about their financial losses and other minor accommodation inconveniences.

4. You encourage this Dependent personality disorder (DPD) which is a pervasive psychological dependence on other people. You tell them they should be angry and so forth.

5. What did they gain from their grievances?. It would have saved them a lot of energy to just evade the silly emotional frustration and deal with the situation upfront. Then pursue their logical right as paying clients and request reimbursement.

Save your own life and your own family by practising and living the ancient Tongan way of Angamokomoko or a the True Tongan Manners and Behaviorals that is always cool and never hot (angry) or cold (depressed)

Studies after studies have proved that anger, stress, emotional frustration is the leading cause of chronic illness like high blood pressure, anxiety, hypertension that accrue over time, eventually leading to poor mental and physical health. And minorities like Tongans are very vulnerable:

complain is ok, but emotional angry is not. If the purpose of the complain is to get reimbursed for the money spent, then they must do so according to the airlines policies and responsible department. It is a matter of negotiation.

It is only a waste of their energy to complain to the counter clerk and whine to the news paper, look at the poor limping Sami, he can conserve his energy instead of getting hypertension.
