Of course, the one morning I drag myself out of bed at what is a normal time for most other people, but ungodly early for me, get myself in the shower promptly instead of staring at the internet for a half hour, and get out the door with plenty of time to get to work, and pick up the candidate that needs to meet with one of my colleagues, when I just miss a train, and another one doesn’t come for 20 minutes. 20 MINUTES. So then I have to rush to the security desk to pick up the candidate, and I have no idea what his name is, I just know it’s long and starts with an “E”, and get him up to his interview, which I do.
Then I call Time Warner to see if they can possibly move my appointment from tomorrow at 8 am to today at 2 pm. I get put on hold for 10 minutes, then they tell me that someone can come today, but they’re not going to tell me when they’re coming, and if someone isn’t there when I get there they’re going to charge me $40. Why can’t you just call me a half hour before you come? Then I’ll make sure I’m home in time. Unless the subway stalls for 20 minutes again.
How are you today?
UPDATE: So I left work early to make sure that I would be here in case they show up, and of course, they’re not here. I expect that they’ll either come at 6:55, or not show up at all, and then either show up right at 8 am tomorrow morning, after our planned night of carousing as PSB’s sister is in town for her bachelorette party (and did I mention we were just in Texas? I should blog about that, too), or they won’t show up tomorrow night either, and I’ll be stuck without cable again for another week. AWESOME!
