My work sent me an email two weeks ago, it was regarding a project I worked on last summer and fall. The project is fully up and running now and they wanted to thank us. They said we would be taken on a day cruise to relax, eat, drink and enjoy conversation. At first as usual I was going to decline. My sister said don't be your usual stick in the mud, take some time to go out and enjoy yourself, I knew she was right so I accepted the invitation.
This Thursday was the day we were supposed to go and I was looking forward to it. This morning I received an email from work, "due to blah blah blah canceling boat cruise blah blah blah sorry for the inconvenience blah blah blah". I hadn't left yet and when I looked up *Mr Bean was sitting on my bed. " You know Steve your life is more pathetic than any Mr Bean episode I have been in", as he stood up to go he added, "maybe it's just as well, with your track record the boat would probably be named Titanic III".
*Mr Bean is a British comedy character, he is also my patron Saint of all things regarding Murphy's law, he comes to me in my dreams and imagination to mock me, cruel, cruel mockery.
