Just a whine...

I raced around the house this morning to get the Little Man to Pre-school and myself and the Munchkin to a Sales Meeting.  It was really horrible, me yelling and grabbing stuff, them trying to slow me down because I was yelling, you know what I mean.

The Little Man got pushed into his classroom and I bolted with about 9 minutes before the 10am meeting, 7 minutes drive plus walking time away.  I felt guilty but happy I'd be able to get to the sales meeting which I had been trying to fit in.

I found a really good parking space and walked into the building only a few minutes late.  Nobody there.  I ask the receptionist.  No idea. Not expecting anyone...

I stomped back down to the shops and bought a coffee.  I tossed up on what to do.  I really didn't want to go to the meeting anyway, but was so annoyed nobody had bothered to tell me it wasn't on, so I didn't phone or text anyone, I just headed back to the car in the rain and drove home.  As I drove up the driveway I received a text asking if I wanted them to save me a seat?  What?  It was now 10.50ish. 

I replied that I had been and left and couldn't come back as I had figured I got the day wrong as there had not been anyone there at 10 and so I  had made other plans.  I was so annoyed with myself for getting the time wrong.

It's been another one of those weeks - I even put the garbage out a day early.  It's supposed to be the other way around after a long weekend isn't it?.

When I got inside I checked and I have 5 separate messages, emails and texts telling me that the meeting is at 10am...

Hmmm.  Somehow everyone else got there for 11am.  Apparently I got extra messages because I was supposed to get some sales award.  I guess I am destined to be frustrated this week.

  1. ...and it's not even April 1! How frustrating.
    I'm with you though Sam, not having the best week. I think that after a long weekend everything is out of whack... now I have to wait until next week to get back into routine!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read them all and try very hard to reply.
