Okay, here is today's list of universal truths proven.
- Men will not take directions from women, even if they're right.
- Irony will always pop up at the most inconvenient times and embarrass you.
- Everything convenient is inconvenient to the powers that be. Therefore, everything inconvenient to those subject to the powers that be, is actually convenient.
- If the girl is cute, you're going to make yourself look like a moron.
Truth number one. My father and I, fresh from a coffee run, decided to bring my mom some coffee as well. Upon leaving her workplace, my dad decided to turn left at the end of the street instead of right. It's harder to turn left because the street he's attempting to turn onto is a busy one. Moreover, we'd have to turn onto another even busier street. I suggested he turn right because in the end, it's faster. There are only two traffic lights and two stop signs. His way, there are four traffic lights and you're at the mercy of douche bags who won't let you change lanes. He declared a hatred for my way and did as he pleased. Before he completed the turn, he decided he wanted a haircut. His barber is located on the street we would have gone down had we gone my way. But! We went his way, turned right down some side street and waited at a stop sign because at that juncture, the street we would have been on had he listened to me, is busy.
The next point regards the ongoing saga of taking a summer course. I'm starting to feel like I'm infiltrating enemy territory every time I walk into the registrar's office. Plus, the doors open backwards which never ceases to confuse me. Today I was dropping off my acceptance of their letter of admission. Which is stupid considering I've been at this school five years already... So, submitted that page which only required my signature and a checkmark.
Woman: Okay, so if you'll see Debbie, she'll help you with registering.
Lauren confused: Why?
Woman confused: To register for classes.
Lauren: Can't you do that online?
Woman surprised: I... Yes, if you feel comfortable doing that.
Lauren: I think I can handle it.
In a strange twist of irony, the ever trustworthy Internet has decided that "I can't register at this time". Piece of crap. Now I have to go back and see Debbie. AAAARG!
Following that lovely excursion, I went to the book store where I discovered that the course pack for my class was out of stock. We're only ten people in the class. How it can be out of stock amazes me. Particularly since it's printed in the basement of the school. As it turns out, it was mislabelled which prevented me from buying it last Wednesday when it was in stock. So, I paid sixty dollars for a receipt and travelled down to the basement of the school. It looks like somewhat like a warehouse where someone is going to jump out at you from around the corner and drag you into the janitor's office, never to be seen again. Still, placed my order with the printer's. I get to pick it up Monday afternoon, after my class. Perfectly inconvenient.
Popped into my doctor's office today because we were in the area and calling them is next to impossible. I showed up around closing time so the usual receptionist wasn't in her usual scrubs. I thought she was cute in the scrubs. Damn casual clothes! Anyway, I wanted to change my appointment from Friday to Thursday. She promptly looked up my information and told me that my appointment was on the 10th. Yeah... the 10th is a Thursday. She laughed, I blushed, it all went exactly according to plan. I got her to write down my appointment on a card before I left.
This has been Universal Truths. I hope you've learned something. I certainly have.
I'm Lauren Daily, signing off. Yes, I felt the need to narrate that.
