It has been a crazy week already for me! I can't believe that it's "just" Tuesday! I have to work every day this week because our office manager is off for a week. It's not a problem to work at the front desk. But it means that I don't get my day off this week, and I have to get to work early to open the office and stay late to close it.
Carl is working a late schedule this week so of course I was in a rush to get out of the office and get home. But this evening before I could head home I had to stop and get food for the dogs. I glanced at my watch and knew that if I didn't chat with the employees in the shop like I usually do, I could be home by 7:00. So, I rushed in, picked up what I needed, and didn't even wait for the offer to carry my bags of food to my van. I had a spot right up front so I was going to quickly be on my way...At least that was the plan...When I pushed the button on my key to unlock the door, nothing happened. I tried it again, and again, and again, and nothing happened. I'd noticed the last week or so that it hasn't been working that well, and so it didn't take long to conclude that the battery for the key must be dead, giving me no way to get into my van. I tried to get in touch with Carl, but was unable. I was really trying to keep my composure. But I have to admit that it was getting increasingly difficult because all the stress I've been feeling the last couple of days was finally starting to get to me. I know they could see me from inside the shop because "Jon" who is the manager came out and asked me if everything was okay. I was nearly in tears as I explained to him about my dead key battery and not being able to get into my van. He looked at my key and very kindly and carefully paused for a moment and then asked me if I'd tried putting the key into the door to unlock it....Oh...I guess I forgot that it works that way too...I'm sure they're having a good laugh at my expense at "Whole Pet" and you can laugh too if you'd like--It's really okay because I deserve it! Besides I really needed a laugh today as well, even one at myself is okay because it has made me feel better! Laughter really is the best medicine!!
