The day they were leaving for the airport to visit her grandchildren, her husband (apparently quite on purpose) decided to join her at the driver's way too behind schedule. However, the flight got cancelled. After they return home to try and catch the flight again, we see that the husband again tried to slow things downy. This is when she goes in to try to get him, and suddenly comes out to take the trip on her own .

    we see that the husband again tried to slow things down by saying that he forgot his daughter's gift inside, which was in fact, in the car already.

    heard the sound of their elevator getting stuck between floors and she left anyway, knowing that her husband would die trapped there. She decides to ignore him and said to the chaffeur that Mr. Foster will take a later cab so they could just leave for the airport now.

    4. What were Mrs Foster’s feelings at the end of the story?
    Mrs. Foster's feelings at the end of the story, therefore, are all or almost all of a positive variety. There is relief at finally being free, excited anticipation at being able to spend more time in Paris with her grandchildren.
