Today was just not my day. Things started out great with me getting up with my alarm… ok, I snoozed only 4-5 times… but I was still up before 6am and out the door before 6:30am. I got in the car knowing I needed to get gas but pretty sure I could make it to work on the fumes I had left. [Its 24 miles to get to work and gas is always cheaper there.] So I'm driving and about 5 miles in my gas light comes on and I know I can make it to work… and I do!
So I'm sitting at my desk and planning to get gas on my way home when one of my employees asks if I want to go to Taco Bell for lunch. I brought some homemade chili in my lunch but… I heart Taco Bell. I go to reach for my work bag to see how much damage I can do at lunch time and discover… my wallet is just not in there! My first thought is, well I will just stick to the chili then, easy decision!
My second thought? Total panic: how in the heck am I going to get home??
So I do the only thing I can think of to do – I call my dad. Yes, I am 30-something and my dad still comes to the rescue! He promises to work something out and email me back. So I tell my employee I'm not going to Taco Bell with her and the reason why… the girls all thought it was pretty hilarious that I was stranded at work… ok lets face it, I thought it was slightly hilarious too!
I was then offered a bailout by my employees. Did I ever tell you that they are THE BEST?!
Thanks to them, I made it safely home. I owe them. Big time!
