Friday, not a good day

Wow, did today ever suck!

I woke up and looked around my room with the feeling that I had missed something. Wait a minute, why is it so bright out?!? It was 9am – the time I’m supposed to be at work. I called the cab on my cell phone right away and threw on my clothes. Before I had the time to get my boots on the cab was outside honking. Then the bastard asks me “which laneway do you want?” and laughs at me when I told him to take a left onto the street where my work is.

I don’t use any laneway, my workplace is right at the front of a commercial condominium complex. As well, I just woke up… don’t laugh at me you jackass cabbie!

Anyway. After that I get to work, start working on translating some English CD-ROM content to French and my boss approaches me. I had forgotten to add an Excel spreadsheet to a CD-ROM I didn’t even develop. I screwed up bigtime and our company has to reprint 75 CDs at our cost. Needless to say, I was on edge all day. I’m pretty sure I have a job Monday morning, but nothing in life is guaranteed. Especially when the cards are stacked against you (and you’re the one who stacked them).

Couple this all with the fact that I’m just getting over something that has made me very sick and worn out for the past week and that pretty much wraps up a bad Friday.

Well, I think I’ll finish my work for the day and relax after work. ;_;
