Tell me your work horror stories

It is about 7:30 and as I star at t he little clock on my computer I realize I have already been here for 2 hours! This lovely hot, humid, muggy morning I am awaken by the sound of my Nextel beeping profusely. Assuming it was my alarm I let it go and fell back asleep. Then I realized it is the ALERT button on my Nextel. I was jolted awake only to find I forgot to leave the paperwork out last night for the job the shot crete crew is supposed to be going to this lovely morning. I thought a simple solution was to direct them to the paper work in my office only to find out, yeah, they don’t have keys to my office. See I work for a pool company that installs custom in ground pools. This fine morning we happen to be “shooting” (installing the concrete shell) a pool for another company. The crew arrives at our shop between 4:45 and 5am, the job they are going to is in Voorhees, NJ they would have left the shop by 5:15 at the latest. So I realize I need to drive down to my work unlock my door and give them the paperwork. I jump out of bed glance at the clock it is 5:15am. At this point, I am totally regretting staying out at my friends until after 12 watching the notebook, which was an awesome movie I highly recommend it! So I jumped out of bed throw on a pair of jeans grabbed a t-shirt out of my closet and threw my hair up. Did not brush it, forgot deodorant, did brush my teeth, did not take a shower, I just left. I have on a normal day about a 30 minute ride to work this morning I made it in 15 which was great. I am about 2 minutes away when my boss, one of the owners, 2-ways me and says oh Di go back to bed I got this you do not have to come in until 7. I was like hey thanks for the thought very nice of you and all but where the hell were you 20 minutes ago. I get here and get the guys off on their way for the day after a few direction questions, moans, and groans. So I have been sitting here just thinking I, on a normal day, would just be getting here. I am so tired hungry and annoyed. I will still probably be here until like 5 or 6 anyway. This just sucks.

So please tell me your work horror stories……
