I woke up at 5:30 a.m. to my house alarm system going off. It's been a little fickle lately, so I wasn't concerned, I just had to get out of bed and beat the shit out of the panel. Done.
I couldn't get back to sleep so I decided I should just go to work early because I had a horrible project bidding today and just didn't have my ducks in a row for it. I get to work at 7:00 a.m. and no one else is there. Call co-worker Jeff. He gives me instructions on how to get into the building. I recall him saying something about going thru the warehouse so as to not set the alarm off, but as I usually take directions, I summarize 7 sentences into 6 words, and proceed. I open the overhead door, and walk in the normal way...security alarm starts blaring. This is not my day. The security people end up giving our CFO a early morning wake up call, she tells them there's just a ding bat blonde running thru the office and there was no need for police.
I get some work done on my bid....it still sucks, and I end up revising it and faxing it out 3 different times. I really suck at my job.
