Just NOT my Day
So I was told I haven't written in a while and people look forward to reading my listings! If you want to hear details of my soap opera life you have to talk to me in person other then that this week was crazy. I already had a full schedule and it was only Monday!!
How did this week go by so quickly?!?
Busy Busy.... Running around NYC has it's ups and downs as you can imagine. I am out everyday trying to bring in new business for my company. But Wednesday was a day from hell and just when I thought it couldn't get any worse it DID (that was until I had say about 10 drinks in me!)
Every morning my team has a 9:30am meeting with our manager, but today my client scheduled a meeting with me at 9am on the Upper West Side (my office is in the East Village). I took the liberty of informing my manager on Tuesday night so I covered my tracks and got his approval. So if you know anything about NYC the commute from the east side to the west side is anytime of the day hell on earth and then to the UPPER WEST in RUSH HOR TRAFFIC, don't even get me started!! I woke up earlier than usual to make sure I had enough time for the dreaded commute and it is POURING. Great morning start!
I make it up to the office with time to spare so I decide to get my client and myself a cup of coffee. I check into the building and the client is not there. I end up waiting around 30 minutes before someone comes out to greet me with the news that the client has to cancel our appointment. He couldn't have called me earlier to tell me he was sick!! HU???? I trek all the way back to my office in the rain and my I am getting hounded on how many contracts I am going to bring in this week. I just had a miserable morning and now I now I'm getting work pressure. Lovely.
Then one of my other advertisers called to pull out their ad that was running this week and it made me late to my next appointment. The meeting as you can guess was a completed waste of my time and they did not sign the contract!!! And by the way it was still raining and wet and gross out. I get back to the office and realize I left my cardigan at my last meeting and had to run back over to the west side again! When it stopped raining I walked around the west side a little until 6:00 and totally forgot that I was supposed to meet my sister at 7:30, but I had to get back to work to process payment for an ad that was going to run the next day.
It starts raining again and it takes me 45 minutes to get back to the east side! ERRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrr New York/Rush hour/Rain. HORRIBLE! When I get back to work I had three messages about billing problems and the creative on one of my ads that ran wrong!!! I couldn't take it. I shut my computer off and just left work. This day couldn’t get any worse and I was just looking forward to a nice dinner with my sister (although I had to hall ass back to the west side). I make it down to the subway just in time to see the doors close in my face. GREAT! I am already late!! I was standing around for another 15 minutes until the next train came saying, this day was so bad that it couldn't possible get any worse!! That was until some old smelly guy stuck his arm pit in my face on the subway with no room to move anywhere. So I was in tears from earlier, wet from the rain, late to meet up with my sister, and to top it all off I had an arm pit in my face! YUMMY!!
THANK GOODNESS FOR ALCOHOL- The rest of the night was a drunken slur! THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY :)
