I left work today late. Then I ran an errand to an office supply store in search of a particular item. I couldn't find what I was looking for. A young employee approached and asked if I need help. I told him what I was looking for and he admitted he didn't know what that was and would ask an appropriate associate from that department to help me. So, I waited and waited and waited. I wandered up and down the aisles in search of what I was there for. Nothing and no sales associate. I kept looking at the time on my cell phone, watching the minutes pass and getting slightly annoyed at this "part of my life I'll never get back".
I finally found what I was looking for, but not as many as I wanted to get. The young employee returned and asked if the appropriate associate had helped me. I told him no but that I found what I was looking for and asked if someone could tell me if there was more in stock somewhere. That began yet another long wait. Moral of this story - I was in the store for 45 minutes and there was no additional inventory. Ugh. I felt like I was being "tested". Needless to say, that put me home late after leaving work late and now I feel like my evening is shot. I have two back-to-back webinars in the morning beginning at 8am and I am not proficient at being anywhere at 8am.
