i knew something was amiss when i woke up this morning.

it was full dead on daylight.

hrm.

i thought to myself "self? this is certainly not good."

i forgot to set my alarm last night. i was dinking around with it last night, and i.. well, i SET it, but i sorta didn't turn it ON.

so i call michaels.

"happy holidays, this is michaels."
"rene!"
".....hello?"
"it's aubrey!"
"oh, hi!"
"my alarm didn't go off."
"oh, okay, we were wondering where you were, cuz no one had seen you yet!"
"i'm SO SORRY. i will be leaving here in like 5 min, and it's a half hour walk, so i'll be there as soon as possible."
"okay, hun, we'll see you then!"

*yet again proof positive that michaels is a bit more relaxed than office max..*

a few min later...

*phone rings*
"aubrey? this is sonia."
"*freaking*ijusttalkedtorenei'llbetheresoon..."
"no problem, i have faith here, she wants to know if you would like a ride, cuz she would be happy to come get you!"

o_O

"um.. sure!"

so the manager is coming to get me so that i don't have to walk outside in the cold rain. when they had called me back, i was convinced they were telling me to not even freaking bother.

hee hee.

but i must finish getting ready. brushing hair is good.

That's really super-cool. Nice to know *someone* out there isn't getting fired right before the holidays for something stupid. :)

USUALLY people understand that shit happens. We've ALL done the stupid "oops..might help if I turn the sucker on" or my favorite, setting it to, say, 6PM instead of AM. That's always fun.

Office Max and Staples and such SUCK. Hehehehe.

That's really cool of them! Very holiday-spirited. :) That makes me happy that there are still nice people like that. xD Usually people wouldn't go out of their way to do nice things like that. <3

that WAS very cool of them! i desperately need to crack down and start working harder there, because i've been so TIRED and such, i keep slacking off.. and showing up late.. (even if it is only a couple of minutes late, it still reflects bad on me..)

I have no idea what you just said. I can't stop watching your icon.

OM definately makes themselves out to be bastard employers. Thankfully there are real humans working at Michaels so they understand these things.

I recently bought a new alarm clock and the absolute nicest feature is the ability to kill the alarms and have them *automatically* reset themselves for the next day. It even has 7-5-2 settings so you can have all week, weekday only or weekend only alarms.

Now if only I wasn't a zombie when I sleep...
