One of those days...and then some

You know your day is off to a strange start when you get an e-mail from one of your board members and the subject line is "Last night."

No, it's not what you think...a co-worker filled in for me and agreed to cover a meeting that I normally staff on Thursday night, as it was my and Mr. RK's anniversary. The board member that chairs the committee never showed up.

This board member, an attorney with attention to detail so minute that it even gives super-organized-me the creeps, totally forgot about the meeting.

I had to wonder if there was secretly a full moon...or if one was just invisibly hovering over my office.

Friday morning began with horrible traffic. One of my volunteers then proceeded to get lost - even as she was on the steps outside of our office.

Then another volunteer got a call from someone in Quebec.

Volunteer: "Francais? English? Spanish? Oh, you are in Quebec? Do you want our Quebec chapter?"

It took about 10 minutes for him to establish that it was just a wrong number.

Then we had a meeting on a conference line that kept hanging up on the person calling in.

Then we had a woman call and rail about how her rights were being violated...because she couldn't find a doctor who would remove her breasts.

Then that night I had a sex dream about my boss, who I had to see this morning because we had to finish moving our office. Needless to say I couldn't look him in the eye.

I'm not making this up.

Ever have one of those days?

That picture is I've never had a day like your's (my old boss wasn't remotely sexy, but yes I've had day's where I just can't wait for the next day to arrive.

G said...

Day? No.

Week? Yes.

As an aside, that is one funky website where you pulled that picture from. I have it on my Facebook page.

Nope can't say I have, if I did I'd have more to blog about!

Lynn said...

Not quite like this one, but yes. :) Do you find your boss attractive? Just wondering.

Claire said...

What a day! Hope the weekend has been a tonne better!

Hey everyone...but NO, I do not find him attractive! I mean, he's not ugly, but I am not attracted to him, so this was doubly uncomfortable.

Holland said...

Luckily NO!!! :-)

Let me tell you something about people in Quebec. They're not very bright. Anybody in Quebec with any brains, well, they leave Quebec.

Riot Kitty said...

H: Good!
WIFSF: I have never been I guess I'll skip it ;)

Darth Weasel said...

John McElveen said...

Lulú said...

Ha! I never have days like that. ;)

Hmmm...wondering if your boss is attractive. Isn't this the second time you've had a sex dream with him in it?

Riot Kitty said...

Darth: Oh, please continue!
MZ: Glad I'm not the only one.
John: I did too :)
L: I have worked with him too long to consider him anything except asexual, like a plant. And it's like the 10,000th time I've had a dream about him!

Too often to mention:)

To quote my favorite children's books: "Some days are like that, even in Australia."

It's from Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very bad Day, in case you haven't read it. :)

Riot Kitty said...

S: So it's not just me!
A: I love that book :)

Shionge said...

I do and I hope days like this are few and far.

Hope you are better now L:D
