first let me say how much i fucking hate going to work at 4am..

so this afternoon i had decided to get some sleep earlier than i normally do since i have to be on "storm watch" over what's now left of ida passing through overnight, well my power went out, and just as it came back on it tripped my alarm clock to start ringing, i quickly look over and grab my cell phone to confirm the time, that's when i noticed it said 5:45...now i'm like "Fuck i'm late for work!" , it didn't hit me til i called me boss rambling on like my life was at stake til he told me to check again and if i noticed if it said AM or PM......FUCK!!! ....it was 5:45 P FUCKING M...and now my boss is laughing at me...just fucking great...


someone please kill me...:mad:

Doesn't publicly imply you are in public?

If you weren't IN public, it wasn't public.

EDIT: Dammit, Siraris! You beat me to it!

I used to do that a lot during high school. I'd fall asleep, wake up at like eleven, rush to get dressed... then realize it was dark out. The feeling of getting to go back to sleep was kind of worth it, though, after all that panicking.

Dude. That is definitely something you just laugh off. Unless you told your boss you would suck his dick to keep your job, or something like that, just chill.

Siraris, the title was a figure of speech, although there was a crowd in his office and he had the phone on speakerphone.

not to mention i ran 3 red lights and ran over a dog.

it had to be one of 3 things

1) a dog

2) Disgustipated

3) A large rat that yelps like a dog

Guys, when he meant public humiliation, I'm pretty sure he was talking about displaying his grasp on the English language in public forums such as this one.

The alarm clock bit was just a subplot.

You ran over a dog, yet you are worried about your boss laughing at you?

I'm in awe of how disconnected from reality you are.

That's "grasp of the English language," you twit.

Oh damn!

I don't understand the "minimum amount of characters for a post" rule. Whenever somebody has a message that's "too short", the only addition they make is an announcement, and thus bypass, of that fact.

Well.
One day I went to sleep and work up. Saw it was 7. It was fall.

Went to work. Yep 7pm, not am. I sat down, tried to relieve the guy on duty and he looked at me and thought he was being fired.
Took months for me to outlive that.

I'd figure that you'd be used to public humiliation by now.

Siraris, the title was a figure of speech, although there was a crowd in his office and he had the phone on speakerphone.

Because crowds of people normally hang out in your bosses office waiting for you to call? Being that this would have been the most amusing part of this story moving it from the "whoops, my mistake that no one gives a shit about" to "mildly amusing" I think if it were true it would have been in your original post.

I really hate it when people "remember" details about an event they thought was amusing that no one else does in an attempt save themselves the humiliation of just telling a completely boring story.

not to mention i ran 3 red lights and ran over a dog.

I'm assuming you're just being facetious here.

i chuckled at your story. I have a short similar one.

When I was interviewing for a job in college, a manager who I had already interviewed with called me early in the morning to say i they wanted me to come back for a second interview. He called around 9am, I was half asleep, picked up my phone, and answered it; "hey baby girl I was just thinking of you"... thinking it was my girlfriend calling me in the morning. Then I heard a- "umm Hello?" in a man's voice. That woke me the fuck up.

What disconnect? He's likely just kidding. Even if he isn't, ole Fido ain't paying his bills.

"If a person isn't paying your bills or sucking your dick, then 9/10 they are not important." Ole friend of mine told me that once. Best advice I ever received.

Besides, he ran over Disgustipated, not a dog, so rest easy! :D

I wonder what made him get so cold-hearted. I just want to give him a reassuring hug sometimes, ya know? :(

What can I say, I'm not a big fan of liars. If he'd stop pretending to be someone else I'd leave him alone but considering his past and now with this, fuck him.

I'm normally not one to continually call some one out like this but Cyberdistraction/RoadDawg has no right to be here if he's going to continue to lie to the community, especially considering the way he has acted in the past.

I would like to add that I feel deep down, no matter how much anyone refuses to admit it, everyone really needs an e-hug.

This is why I refuse to nap during the day. I keep my bedroom pitch black, so I can't tell whether its night or day unless I actively dig around things to lift the blackout curtains. Half the time, this far north, its dark out even if it isn't night.
The last time I tried a midday nap not only did I get the date confused, I thought I had an exam =\ did not make my day.

I did the same thing once in middle school. I fell asleep on the couch. When I woke up, I saw that the grandfather clock on the wall said it was 7. Since I had to be at school for a field trip at 7, I ran out of the room in a panic. I was halfway through a quick shower before my fuzzy brain put it all together and realized it was 7pm, and not 7am.

When quoting this I was tempted to change the font size to a hugely high number.

The thread title is ironic.

no, they were in his office for a meeting about programming and promotions for the next 3 months and how to do it on zero budget.

So even though your boss told you it was 5pm not 5am effectively giving you 12 hours to get to work on time you still left immediately in an attempt to get there "on-time" running 3 red lights in the process?

You're not the brightest bulb in the bunch are you?


and stop fucking sending me PMs.

I dunno, if you would have told the story with a self deprecating tone and a "Haha, guess it was good I wasn't late, huh?" it would be a pretty funny anecdote. Posting this in a sheer, "OMG I can't believe what an idiot I've been!" manner?

Now you've publicly humiliated yourself.
