Rough Day at the Office

Today, I was supposed to play an outdoor concert downtown over the lunch hour.  It’s really windy today in Buffalo, and when I arrived at the gig, everyone was in a tizzy because the music stands were blowing over.  So, because of excessive wind, the concert was canceled and my workday (which was scheduled to last all of 55 minutes) was over at 11:45am. 

My life is very, very difficult.  I mean, I had to get up at 9:30 AM to get to that concert.  Plus, I had to find a clean white top and two matching black socks.  Couldn’t someone have called me before I drove an entire mile to the concert?  That seems like the least management could have done.  Someone really screwed the pooch on this one.  I couldn’t even get back to sleep when I got back home at noon.

I’m calling my union rep.

    Does that mean I don’t have to use an unpaid personal service today?!? Will have to look into this…

    Thanks for providing the funny tizzying visual of blowing-over music stands.
