Just My Effin' Luck...

Fri Oct 20, 2006 8:52 am

It's Thursday afternoon, and I've been counting the minutes left till 5 o' clock to leave the office and go home. I'm tired, I'm sleepy, tomorrow is a holiday and I can't wait to get some deserved rest. I start clearing my desk and storing everything, while I wait for my boss to return and sign some papers.

So my boss comes in at 5:15, signs the papers, and calls the managers to a meeting. Meanwhile, I hand the papers to my coworker who will use them, grab my stuff and head for the door... when my phone rings. There has been an incident with one of the companies that hire our security services, and they need me to prepare the incident report.

Now I have to wait until my boss and the managers discuss all the events that happened, all the actions taken past, present, and future, and all sorts of relevant and irrelevant info; then I can type the report, and they'll discuss it to no end until a final draft is reached. Ugh!  banghead   irked   mad   grumpy   tired

On somedays shit happens. Just got to deal with it. Remember the number of times getting dispatch to an accident or dealing with some screw up at the end of a shift and having to book his/her ass at the local jail, causing one having to work late, (at least overtime pay was involved, which I doubt you're getting).

Not quite. Big grin I managed to catch a ride back home with one of the supervisors. Still, 1:30 to travel the 25km from the office to my home?! I so hate the evening traffic.

And you just had to answer your phone? LOL! Have we learned any lessons? Here are a few excuses I have used in the past:

1. My cell phone battery died, and I did not realize it until I got home late. I checked my messages, and could not do anything as it was so late!

2. For some odd reason, I did not get the message. Sorry.

3. I lost my cell phone! Luckily someone found it, and called my house on it.

Oh man, I am teaching bad things! Sorry!!!!  Smile

Of course I know the usual excuses: dead battery, no signal... Sadly, this time it was my desk phone.

New Zealand has a public holiday on monday, so I'm happy as it means I can sleep in.
