What is the meaning of 'a blessing in diguise'?


Wiki User

Somthing that does not appear to be good or helpful, but turns out to be. Example: You get bumped from a flight and the delay causes you to miss an important appointment so initially you're mad. Then plane that you were bumped from crashes, killing everyone. So although getting bumped caused you some aggravation, it was a blessing in disguise because it saved your life.
