vwild1's "meeting tip of the day"

Today's tip:

"Check calendar before attending meetings"


My work place is/was having a big bash today, 2 bands and tons of food. I was soooo looking forward to going to it until I found out I had an important meeting to attend at 7pm Last week I informed the organizer of the party that unfortunately I wouldn't be able to attend because of this meeting.

So here I am today, busy out in the garden when I noticed the clock and thought I'd better get my butt in gear if I want to get to that meeting in time! I then took 1 very fast shower, dressed and ran out the door in less than 15 minutes which would still make me a few minutes late for the meeting. I parked my car and leaped out racing towards the meeting room. When I got there I saw the door closed and knew the second I opened that door there would be about 2 dozen faces giving me that long, cold and quiet stare of displeasure..

I threw the doors open and..... empty.. huh..?!?! Did they move the meeting, is it being held later, what's going on, am I going crazy...?!

I asked a kind woman I saw downstairs where's the meeting at.. She slowly got a big grin on her face, leaned towards me and in a soft gentle voice said..

Today's the 20th of May.. your meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday the 27th...!!

Re: vwild1's "meeting tip of the day"

Your post reminds me of when my old neighbours asked me to looks after 3 of their show dogs & new litter of puppies as they were going to a big dog show hundreds of miles away. They had got the dates wrong and driven for hours to get to this show leaving at 4 in the morning only to get there and find out they were a week early!!!
