Happy Hump Day!
This day has sucked since the moment I woke up. But I woke up, so thank God for that.
This is my day so far:
Sore throat - check
Super bangin' on the door like he's the damn police at 9am just as I'm about to walk out the door for work - check
Taking 20 minutes to install a heat sensor when he said it would take 5 minutes - check
Brooke now late for work - check
Old lady trying to knock me over to get on the train - check
Co-worker telling me that he couldn't find my cell phone that I swore I left in his car - check
Called T-Mobile only to find out calls were made on my lost cell phone - check
***thank God they weren't international calls***
Suspending service, buying new phone (cuz having insurance on the phone only means you have a deductible...in which case mine was $90 - new phone costs $100...so might as well just buy new phone) - check
***note to self...why do I need insurance on my phone again? Cancel it.
And this was all after coming home from the Jets game Monday night to find that my car had been broken into in Brooklyn where co-worker (who insisted on driving) lives - glass everywhere. So I got to take a personal day yesterday to get the window fixed.
Oh, and we won't even talk about the rude customer service I received from AT&T yesterday - I have them for Blackberry service...but I digress....
Needless to say, I didn't feel like blogging yesterday :-)
But, you know what? It's hard to complain when you look at the Chilean miners and their resilient spirits - kind of makes my ordeal seem trivial by comparison. So...I thank God that I have a job that understands when emergencies happen. I thank God that I have money to get my window fixed and replace the things that were taken. I thank God that I have great friends who help me out when I need them. And I thank God I can find humor in even the most annoying and disturbing of situations.
So with that said...this is what I imagine the fool who broke into my car to look like:
