The very bad, horrible, no good day.

Thursday was rough. I had a Domer networking breakfast at 7am and a group interview at 5:30. I was prepared to walk/take light-rail. Walk outside at 6:30 and it is snowing/raining. My umbrella does not open all the way. Fine, I'll just drive. I got to the Delectable Egg a bit before 7 and ask the hostess if anyone is here yet for the ND event. She says no, but they do have a reservation at 7 for 6. I wait -- it's not ND. 7:15 I finally just ask to be seated. The hostess asks if I knew there were two Delectable Eggs downtown. No, I did not. Lame.

I leave work early in case traffic is bad due to snow/rain. I find the building and wait in a Starbucks. I walk in to the office a bit before my interview is supposed to start -- empty office except for one guy in the back office on the phone. Oh, that must be him. I'll just wait for everyone else to get here. I count 11 different fake flower arrangements. At 5:30, he is still on the phone and I am still the only person there. Not good. Turns out the interview was yesterday and I am a moron. :(

Good news -- the boy took me out for tapas to cheer me up.


  1. Ouch. That really is a bad day. I hate when stuff like that happens.

  2. Sorry to hear you had a bad day yesterday - I hope today was better!
