Poppin' In

Just a few notes on my day so far.

Remember - big day for me. Big customer review and dinner.

1) Storm rolled in last night. Knocked out cable/phone. Unable to finish work.

2) Got up at 4:00am. Dressed and on the road just in time.

3) Driving WITH storm. **side note - these damned midwesterners don't know how to flippin' drive in a little rain. You'd have thought, the way they were acting that it was a damned hurricane. What we drove in this morning is a summer squall in Florida. Buck up and drive or get the hell outta my way.** Took 3 hours to get to work this morning.

4) NOTHING was done for today. NOTHING. NADA. I finally got everything rounded up from the responsible parties around 10:30. Won't go into details except at one point I just laid my head on my desk and laughed. It actually scared some people.

5) Luckily my customer is late. 6 hours late. Just now arriving. He's been sitting in a hot plane on a runway for 6 hours. I'm sure he's in just the BEST mood for this now.

6) We're still doin' it. Meeting to start in 20 minutes. We stay til it's done. *Please note - it's almost 5:00pm right now.

Oh, and did I mention I'm on the road at 6:00 again tomorrow?

Yeah - so that's my day so far. And you know what? I'm still smilin'.

heh - everyone's power seems to be out... you, Michele, most of St. Louis... sheesh! Hope the meeting went well even though the poor customer had been fried to a well done crisp.
