Today was just a bad day. Now hold on, before you bail on me because you don’t want to get dumped on, I promise to bring it back around and make a positive point. But the fact of the matter is, today was just a bad, bad day.
Let me see if I can pull a John Grogan.
Woke up early. No coffee. Brushed my teeth. Threw something on. On the road before 7. Got to work. So far so good. Then good stopped. Ran to Sam’s Club. Filled the cart. Checked out. Debit card wouldn’t work. Frustrated. Called 800 number. Nada. Put my stuff on hold. Called a friend. Took bank’s side. Hurt my feelings. Drove back to office. Called 800 number again. Card is fine. Found my pin. Went back to Sam’s. Pin wouldn’t work. Wrote a check. Now running late. Very late. Got behind slow driver. VERY slow driver. Seriously irritated. Stopped for second errand. Door to place wouldn’t open. Checked hours on the door. Checked cars in the parking lot. Checked if people inside. Tried door again. Nada. Looked inside again. People were there. Waved to them. They opened the door. Placed my order. They were out of what I needed. Waited for new batch. Dropped my sunglasses. All good. Headed back to office. Took the wrong turn. Major agitation. Schlepped entire Sams run up four stories. In heels & skirt. Prepped for guests. Dropped entire bowl of starburts. Picked them all up. In heels & skirt. Starving. Ignored it. Guests arrived. Guests left. Had to clean up. Had to write blog. Need sleep. Wrote blog anyway. Still want coffee. Nada.
So how am I going to turn this into a positive? I have no idea. All I know is that I made it through and seriously, tomorrow, it won’t matter and I’ll be dealing with a whole other set of issues. Sometimes days are just – days that stink. But I am pretty sure that I would much rather have a bad day doing what I do than a really good day any where else and that, is the point.
