God Damn It All To HELL! (Insomnia Part II)

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.

  1. Lets hope you get it tomorrow. I had this same thing happen, cept when I went to track my package they said they delivered it. Apparently to the wrong place. So someone got my HDTV projector while I was shit out of luck. Luckily it was insured and after a few months UPS was able to give the money back to the vendor which then gave the money back to me.
