Dec 23, 2008, 11:44 AM - BAD DAY!!!
Well I want to hear some good news folks for those out there having a good day. MINE IS JUST PLUCKY!!!
I started off with my alarm on my cel phone not going off because it was set on silent. I jumped out of bed and rushed out to go to the base (doing some reserve time) and 2 miles down the road realize I don't have my military ID card...this means I will have to talk someone into meeting me at the gate and signing me in.
I notice that it is starting to drizzle again...The weather man said nothing about this!!! I have the back of the truck filled with the last load of mannequins destined for the post office. Due to the high wind speed, cold temps and moisture in the air one of the packages comes open and starts showering the road with shredded paper then BAM it flys out of the bed onto the highway...GRRRRR!
I get it back into the truck and get to base. I am an hour late and a friend has to pick me up at the gate to give me a ride onto the base. I find my ID card in my PC where I left it and he gives me a ride back to the gate to get my truck. I get back on base and it starts to get really nasty weather wise so I decide to get to the post office to mail the mannequins before the cardboard is totally ruined and find that in all the junk this morning I have lost my wallet. Usually this is no biggie, just cancel the credit cards and move on but I have my Police commission card, certification cards and NUMEROUS other pieces of ID that will take MUCHO PAPER WORKO to replace!!!
Now I am trying to motivate myself to do some work after making all the calls to cancel everything.... it is only 10:00 is this day over yet???
To boot, I just found out that I am on Santa's Naughty list....

The only bright spot is that my wife drove the 30 miles from her work to bring me money and have lunch with me.

I feel your pain, bro! Only mine has been an ongoing Hell-week! Got into a car accident on Thursday, slipped on the ice and banged myself up on Friday (didn't know bruises came in such a variety of colors!), found out on Saturday, after trying to reach this store for 3 weeks, that one of my fiance's Christmas presents wasn't shipped out, Sunday I made a purchase with my debit card for $5. When I got my bank statement yesterday that same store charged me an extra $40 for nothing and then today I got a letter from my credit card company telling me that my $3,000 credit card has been reduced to a limit of $500 due to the economic recession.
So, I'm right there with ya Boomer. We can comfort eachother!

Wow, Boomer....sorry to hear about that! I hate when bad things happen to good people -- karma is a fickle *****.
Happy Holidays, though, my friend!

Wow Boomer, that sucks man. I'm sorry!
I hope your wallet turns up so you don't have to do all that paperwork.
Hope the rest improves too.
I know those mannequins have to be driving you insane but i just wanted to say I do appreciate you doing that for us.
Take care brother.

Boomer I think of it this way. You are going to drill in the Airforce. If it was the Marines you would be doing pointless field ops in the cold. lol.
Hope tomorrow brings ya better luck buddy.
