Just one Monday I would like to wake up and be so excited for it, my excitement would pay off greatly, and I will be so productive my bosses will give me a raise.
Well today is not that Monday. First, I woke up at 5 o’clock cause I was determined to be early for work for once. But, in my rush to leave the house I burnt my top with the iron and had to look for a replacement and guys let me tell you a secret, when a woman says she doesn’t have anything to where we are not joking. In my wardrobe I have t-shirts with cartoons or bands on them, jeans and maxi dresses and after being reprimanded by The Man, I try to be a little formal in my dressing and less hippie – Am still not there yet. 😛
So anyway, after the burnt shirt fiasco, I was still determined to not let the day beat me down and stay upbeat. I had a nice breakfast and everything was going great I left the house early and went to the bus stop. Am there all jovial and upbeat, I see the bus coming my way and I stop it, while am walking towards it a lady bypasses me so fast and runs to the bus taking the only seat left! – Where did bus etiquette go! – So without any options am left at the stage looking like an idiot and getting late.
In my “still taking this Monday to be the best day ever” mood, I decide to walk to the next stage and try my luck. The stars finally align and I get a bus just waiting for me, I take it as a sign of things changing to my favor. I should have known my luck never last. A few feet onto the highway, TRAFFIC!! So there I am my hopes for a good Monday slipping through my fingers but am hopeful, Damn it! I won’t be late cause like the stupidly hopeful person I am, I still think the traffic gods will shower their mercy on me and make it move. Ha! What a joke! We moved slower than a snail with the flu and back problems. I decide to alight not at my bus stop but at a short cut cause I had already seen the symptoms of me being late.
Fortune favoring the bold, I get a bus going my route easily and am happy as a clam am going to be on time. The car begins moving, and I realize I boarded the wrong bus! Hand meet forehead! That’s when I said eff this day and gave up on it. I got out of the bus and walked to work! Reaching the office late, panting and near sweating. Of course I walk in and the Monday morning MANDATORY meeting has already started and I become that guy who has to disrupt everyone to get to my seat. So YAY for Monday! You just declared war.
