Have any of you felt that today was not your day?

I have, I just blew the engine in our lawn mower today.

I have kind of but very minimally, I can try to remember a day at school where I had at least 10 things go wrong. Today I was kinda indecisive about what rocket I want, and had to attend a 2 hour long concert.

Here's what happened to a member of our clan last Monday:

Ok.. you know it's gonna be a bad day when..

Your fiancee has an early meeting at 8:30. You're trying to get a little more sleep before it's time to wake up.. when you hear the door open again.. you know it's your fiancee and sleepily wonder what she forgot. The LAST thing you ever wanna hear is.. "uhh Kyle" no response then she pokes you in the back. "umm kyle..?" at this point, you roll over and pretend to just be waking up.. "yeah" you ask.. "ummmmmm... my car is gone" she states in a small voice, you blink a few times and try to figure out if this is a nightmare or you're just hearing *bleep*... "........what... ?" is the only response your sleepy mind can muster while trying to make sense of what she's saying. she repeats "my car... it's gone..." at this point your jaw hits the floor.. you realize your aren't asleep and that you arn't hearing things..

Good morning!

So we finally get around to calling the cops and find out.. whew.. it isn't stolen.. it's been towed.. took us 3 HOURS to figure out why on earth it was towed. Our dumb *** property manager had given permission to the towing company to tow any car with expired tags.. Eek's tags expired 7 days ago.

The meeting she had to get to early was with a few doctors, presenting a project from college she's been continuing to work on and all her presentation stuff is in the *** **** car!

I had a day like that fairly recently....

I had *just* renewed my AAA where I get unlimited towing, but only 3 (i think) times per year. The renewal wasn't *2*days old when I get a call from my daughter (i have the kids covered too) that she has a flat...

Well, turns out she's at home having gotten the flat coming up our street. not too bad.

I get home only to discover that she only has one of these cheep thin jacks and with the rain the driveway (dirt) is all muddy and soft. Further, I can't find my *real* jack anywhere. So I say the heck with it, call AAA and let *them* change the tire.

Then come over, put on her bicycle tire spare but comment that it is low on air and needs to be topped off. So, we throw her tire into the trunk and I follow her to the gas station (as I'm heading out to kit rockets). Heck, it's only 1/4 mile...

1/8 mile later, *flat*...

So, I'm like, CRIPES! Her *spare* is now flat, nothing to change *into*! so I dial AAA again... by then a cop pulls up to see what the problem is (we're blocking a fairly busy fairway). I tell him i'm calling AAA and he tells me to hang up and *he'll* call them (faster service is a cop calls )

So, the *same* guy pulls up and tows us to my mechanic (there's 1 tow).

So, we're kitting kits up and my cell rings... it's my son, he has a flat tire.... He wants to call AAA but wants to check with me first. I explain that i've already used 1 of my 3 shots and when I find out his car is at his dorm, I ask him to pull the tire and bring it to the garage with his girlfriends car. Whew! crisis averted...

30 minutes later, he calls back from the garage where he had his girlfriends car towed cuz she got a flat on the way to the garage....

I was *so* P.O.'d, that I said the heck with this, lets go home.

Got a flat on the way home....

in a little under 4 hours I used up a years worth of towing...

man... and it was still raining

This wasn't all in one day, but it was a single weekend...

1) Got in a wreck - tore the front end off my car, on a weekend when I was going to be on the road a lot.
2) Got dumped by my girlfriend, who I had flown into town for the next week, and who ended up spending the entire week with my former friend. (It was Valentine's Day, to boot.)
3) Got kicked out of Navy flight school
4) Broke my ankle playing volleyball, and was now forced to go on crutches which were too big to fit into the rental Geo that I was using because of item #1.

Whenever I have a bad day, I just think back to that weekend, and it all comes back into perspective...
