You learn by your mistakes?
The saga of my stupidity continues...

If leaving a pass behind causes you an extra 30 minutes of walking time - you wont do that again right?

At least not in the same day right?

Wrong! My pass (travel) is in the same plastic wallet as my other pass (work). My work pass allows me to get into the building, get through doors, and buy lunch. The building will let you leave any area without a pass, but getting back in is problematic.

So this is how I managed to get all the way to the canteen and order my baguette before noticing I have no pass. I first have the embarrassment of not being able to pay for my lunch (the canteen does not accept cash - even if I had any on me), followed by the realisation that getting back to my desk is going to be a royal pain in the arse. I could phone someone to let me in except my mobile is sat on my desk too... after going through reception (there's always a way around security!) and getting my card and phone I have the trip back to the canteen to pick up my lunch and pay for it.

I think that's quite enough dumb from me for one day...

Current Mood: stupid

Sure thing - I've sent you an invite.

if you reply with your ingame name - I'll frig the style so that appears when you post instead of your LJ username.

I finally got round to fixing the style...

If you use this user picture: you will post as Drair rather than your user name.
