Boss Man just blew up my Monkey! (Read 660 times)

DoppleBock


    I have to be at work for a 10:00am meeting Monday morning -

     

    It actually is important enough that I did not even try to talk my way out of it.

     

    Now I just have to decide what to do about it

     

    1)  Drop out of Monkey

    2)  Travel 10 hours by car to run and then immediately after jump back in car to drive 10 hours back.

     

    Neither seems like much fun - Either way it will cost me $$$

      Option 2 is the only option.

        If you drive faster, it will be less than 10 hours => Option 2

            Have Dr. Samuel Rosenbloom give your Boss a call, stating your inability to drive for at least 24 hours due to the pain meds he had to administer on Sunday. You suffered a severe stress injury and will be unable to attend the 10:00am meeting. That or you get your friend to drive you home. ;D

               Well if he is having a friend drive then he might as well stay and party at Mafiaosa's until midnight  and start to drive then.

                  You might also consider becoming a flying monkey.

                    The meeting is with our Management Team (I am the Controller) and the Home Office President and VPs about the strategy to grow our business to get them ready to present to the BOD.  If the meeting has to be that day (I sure as hell am not going to ask our President and 6 VPs to reschedule) then I want to and must be there.

                     

                    Every week - Month - Year my company gives me great flexibilty to do training and many other things - Once in awhile they ask for something in return - I think I get the better end of that deal.

                     

                    I am thinking through it - For sure it means that there is no reason for my wife to endure 20 hours of driving to sleep in a hotel and spend 4 waking hours in Nashville.

                      I looked - Get's expensive ~ $500 with gas and parking and rental car.

                       

                      If I drive 1300 miles round trip @ 25 MPG ~ $250 with some wear and tear figured in.  The reason I wsa looking forward to monkey was hanging out after and that evening - Take that out and I have to decide if I really want to drive 1300 miles or fly to get my ass handed to me by the course.

                        I'll pick you up from the airport to motel and take you back to the airport. I didn't plan on going to Mafiaozas. If you can figure out a flight, I'll get you from the restaurant or where ever . You can sleep on the plane.

                          People always ask me, "why do you drive all that way to run in a marathon?  You know there's an easier one right here in town.  NO HILLS!"

                           

                          It's stuff like this that makes Monkey great.

                           

                          And beer...

                          I decided that if I'm going to call myself a runner, I should probably run.


                          In it for the long run..

                            I can also help with transportation.  Don't worry at all about that part.  If you can score a plane ticket, the rest is easy.

                              if you gain too much swag to carry on the plane, i will arrange for shipping... and pay for it, too.

                               

                              for realz, yo.

                               

                              except for beers. cannot ship beers.

                                Dude, I'm looking at $900+ to fly out at this point. Yeah, I'm an idiot; I can never nail down my travel plans much in advance.
