I had a birthday gift from the company today. When I checked in for work at 5:30 this morning, there was a little "acknowledge assingnment change" message on the computer. This is normally not a good thing. It means they've changed my assignment for the day. "Please don't do this to me," I silently prayed, expecting the worst, while visions of having to go on the road for three days in a green speckled shirt circled around in my head. Not to mention, I was looking forward to having birthday dinner at home with my family.
Imagine my surprise when I acknowledged my assignment and discovered that my whole day had been cancelled! All I had to do was ride in the back of the airplane home, instead of my scheduled Boston-Philly trip I was supposed to fly. Have to go now, I'm home in time to have lunch with my wonderful husband. Happy Birthday indeed!
