oooops!

Today I woke up too early, so decided to take the bus to work. When I got to work, I checked my email, only to find an email that had been sent Friday afternoon, instructing me to go to the new customer's location in Herndon. Um, no can do. While I could take the Metro to the bus to another bus to the new location, there's no bus route back home from there. And I could take the bus home and drive to the new location, that would be a 125 mile trip, and couldn't commence until the afternoon buses start running in a few hours.

After staggering home after work, the phone rings. It's vvalkyri, asking where I am. I suddenly realize tonight's the night I was gonna have dinner with her and marycatone, 4 miles from where I was working.

Then the phone rings. Telemarketer.

Then the phone rings. Paid solicitor looking to raise donations for <mumble> police beneficent pooba volaré fund.

Paid Solicitor: we'll send you a 2007 police sticker. You put it on your back window to show your supportthat you're a total sucker.

Me: What are you wearing?

PS: What?

Me: What are you wearing?

PS: What?

Me (adopting Peter Lorre accent for no good reason): What are you wearing?

PS: Um, A gold level donation is $$$, what amount are you comfortable with?

Me: I'll donate some body oil!

PS (adopting weird southern accent for no apparent reason): What?

Me: I can donate some nice soft body oil, on your nice soft skin!

PS (thick southern accent): That's really disgusting. I don't wanna listen to this. I gotta go. *clik*

I admit, I can't bring myself to do this to the people soliciting for breast cancer research, as some of them just might actually be legit. But I did tell the mortgage people I have a 3% mortgage, let's see 'em try to top that!
