Not learning....

So....I didn't want to report my lost ATM card because....REASONS, including my conviction that it would definitely turn up, especially when I started monitoring the account and nothing was happening. Until it did. To the tune of about $800.00 bucks. Which I ran to the bank and got reversed, but still.... I hate it when the human race turns out to be as evil as I pretend to think it is when I'm in cynical bitch mode.

@@@@@@

I screwed up at work. AGAIN. Managed to cancel something that shouldn't have been canceled. God protects drunks, fools and travel agents, so I got it all back. Except for the aisle seat on the return. I did get a window, but trust me, this client is a partner and a bitch. If there is NOT an aisle when she gets to that return flight, there will be HELL TO PAY. BUT, I might be able to clear one before then. I just don't know for sure. If I tell her admin now, the admin will tell the Partner and whole fucking hell will broke loose. If I wait and it doesn't clear, then I tell later and it's worse. ULCER time. At least I have told my manager, but so far she hasn't indicated what she wants me to do in the confession department.

Meanwhile, Yay yuletide. Not the assignment I was expecting, and possibly something very different from what might be expected of me. I've got a mental outline and a first sentence, so I'm feeling good about that.

Aaaaaaaaaannnnnnddddddddd if I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere.

My Halloween costume has arrived from the UK. Very excited.

Must be something in the air. I just lost my cell phone. Sigh. I ordered a new one but will need to put the phone book back in, not fun. I'm just glad I have a dumb phone, it's pretty old school, so no one can access anything of mine.

At least with a cell-phone, you can have it turned off temporarily so no one makes calls to Iraq until you find it.

Crud!

At least you realised...?

When we turned up to our hotel we found they'd cancelled BOTH the rooms they'd previously reserved for us. Not what you want to hear after covering 800 miles (ballpark figure) on a motorbike.

*crosses fingers* that one turns up.

Holy crap! Did you book on-line or through an agent? (This is one of the reasons to use an agent...someone to scream to and get them to fix it.)

Online. To be fair they did find us a room, with a better view than the one I'd NOT cancelled (which involved me telephoning them at 2am) and they let us have it at the rally's special rate so it seemed jaw droppingly cheap (to us as Brits). But there was a while there that the urge to rip someone's head off was very strong. That or cry.

I don't even know if I have anything to do for Halloween. The only party I know of is all the way out in Orangevale, and I don't have a car.

I understand the stressing at work situation, believe me! Take care of yourself, hon. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
