So, I apologize but this is going to be a bit of a rant post. I started the day out feeling pretty upbeat. Little did I know I was about to go on an emotional roller coaster of a day. I hopped out of bed, feeling like a morning person even though I’m usually not. Since I really felt like reaching out to people today, I made sure I had my best funny whatsapp status up. Then I got ready and went out to face the day.
That’s when it all went wrong…
I tried to turn the keys in my engine and my car made this horrible screeching sound. Trying to keep calm I called my brother (he knows everything about cars), but as his phone rang and rang I cursed the heavens. He had meetings all day I remembered, and with a sigh left a message I quickly made my next phone call: work. This one was gonna be bad. As all my readers know, my work attendance has been spotty lately as I was having health issues these past three months.
The phone clicked as my work answered, and I knew this was going to be a problem. I tried to explain to them, but they wouldn’t listen. I told them that they cannot hold my time out against me when it is for medical reasons, and this was the only time I’d tried to call out otherwise. Surprise surprise, they weren’t listening. So I resigned myself to trying to find a way to get to work in the next half hour or be fired. How had things gone so wrong so quickly?
I tried calling everyone I knew for a ride, but most everyone I knew was either already at work or on their way themselves. I didn’t have any money for a cab-not if I wanted to eat. I started to cry when suddenly my phone chirped. It was a whatsapp message from my brother: Hey. I got your message. I’ll be out of this meeting in 10. Walk down here and I’ll take you to work…btw that’s a funny whatsapp status ”And just like that my life was saved. The rest of the day was still pretty miserable with my boss yelling at me because I was still ten minutes late. At least I still have a job. And an awesomely funny whatsapp status. If you want to know what it is though, you’ll have to get the app 😛
