You show up to a company meeting at 7:30 when it’s actually at 11:30.
I got up an hour early. I ran my butt off to get ready in time. I EVEN BOUGHT BAGELS!! And I drive into the parking lot and it’s like, “what the hell?? Where is everyone?”
And yet. I still go into the building. Why? Because the last time we had a 7:30 meeting, I was the first to arrive. Then, 7:30 came and went and STILL, no one was there except me and my boss. And finally, at about 7:45, people starting filing in.
So I thought, “Hmm. Maybe everyone is late, AGAIN.”
I walk into the building. The lights are off.
This is not a good sign, I think to myself.
I sign onto my computer and bring up the email about the meeting.
I was so embarrassed, that I hid in a bathroom so the early morning gal, the gal who comes in and turns on computers and lights, wouldn’t see me. I think I might have gotten away with what little dignity I have left.
So, lesson friends, read your emails.
Don’t skim them, like me.
*sigh* I’m such an idiot.
