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?
