Okay, I'm going to steal a page from Rish here...well, I'm going to steal a title from Rish here and call this the Stupid Thing of the Week.
Last night, Rish and I got together to do our weekly podcasting marathon. We finished up at about 3am, and Rish headed home. This morning, I got up at 8am, and groggily made my way to work. When I walked in the door, one of my co-workers looked up, and did a double take.
"What are you doing here?" He asked, "I thought you weren't in this morning."
My stomach dropped. He was right, I was supposed to come into work not at my normal time of 10am, but for the evening shift starting at 1:30pm. With my commute being almost an hour each way, it didn't make sense for me to go all the way home, only to turn around and come all the way back an hour and a half later. I could have slept later (which I always desperately need on Tuesday mornings). On top of that, my wife, who also works full-time, had a day off today, so I could have spent the whole morning with her (and we get precious little time together as it is) if only I'd paid attention to my schedule.
So, I spent the morning wandering around stores, and trying to sleep in my car. I wasted my whole morning away at nothing of worth.
If I could only get my hands on that a-hole that changed my schedule around, I'd end him.
You've probably guessed it by now, but the guy who makes the schedules for me at work? Yeah, it's me.
