I finally fell asleep. At 6:00 in the morning. Here’s the breakdown of the day’s events.
6:00 AM – Fall asleep
7:55 AM – Alarm shrieking, I wake up with a start. I had to be at work at 8:00.
Oh great. It’s going to be a fun day.
Thank goodness I took a shower last night. I throw on some clothes, gargle with some mouthwash and I’m out the door.
8:10 AM – I call work to let them know I’ll be a “Few minutes late”
8:15 AM – Lake Shore Drive is a parking lot. FUCK.
8:30 AM – I arrive at work… a few MORE minutes late than I had hoped.
Now here is where I must decide whether I want to blog about work or not, because someone might just read this. All I will say is that the reason why I had to be at work so early is because I was asked to come in early by my manager the night before to work on something, and he couldn’t get a hold of the other two people in my area. So he got me. “Fine, I’ll be there” I said.
So when I got to work, BOTH of my co-workers were already there.
And so… WHY again did I bust my ass to get here this morning?
(I guess that breaks down the “blogging about work” bit.)
1:00 PM – Free lunch. Whooo hoo! I love when meetings get out and there’s food left over.
3:30 PM – Meeting with manager and partner about project. I had to leave at 4:15 at the latest for a doctor’s appointment. And to get home in time for my computer to arrive. Now they’re giving me a project to get done in an hour. Uh-huh.
4:45 PM – I leave work, frustrated and handing the job off to my also-frustrated co-worker.
4:50 PM – Too late for the doctor’s office. I reschedule the appointment, but still go home. I’m exhausted, after all. Plus, my computer is coming! UPS said they’d deliver after 5:00 PM.
5:15 PM – I arrive at home. No InfoNotice from UPS – they haven’t arrived yet. Cool.
5:45 PM – Still waiting.
6:00 PM – Yep, still waiting.
6:30 PM – Hmmm… wonder what’s on TV.
7:00 PM – You guessed it.
7:15 PM – I call UPS. They have no record that anyone had been to my house, but “They have to make an attempt today before 7:00 PM.”
“It’s past that,” I retorted.
“Oh… well, sometimes they do run late.”
“We’ll see. If they don’t arrive with it I will have to call to make other arrangements.”
8:15 PM – Still no delivery.
9:30 PM – Here I am, typing away on my blog, on my OLD computer.
So let’s recap. I had one sleepless night. I busted my ass to get to work, only to find my coworkers already there (who they said they couldn’t get a hold of the night before.) I cancelled my doctor’s appointment, I got home in time for UPS, and they never arrived. Plus, I was supposed to have gone to a chorus marketing meeting tonight, which I missed, because I was waiting for UPS.
My day sucked. How was yours?
I’m going to bed now.
