Two weeks after my "little" car accident (kashongahan) at work I finally got the courage to go back to the place and check the damaged. After the incident I stopped parking at my original spot and took refuge at the front parking lot next to where our company President's car sits. For fear that one day I might hit some very expensive car I decided to move back to my designated spot.
Hush everyone! To this day, I'm not sure if the security camera at the building captured that moment lol! No one has said something to me about it (I owe up to it lol) so I assume I'm clear for misbehaving or it will just resurface one day and starts hunting me down lol! So folks here it is be my judge!

Blonde Moment!

I had two disasters today. Yes two in a row. First, as I was all alone in the parking lot I suddenly changed my mind and decided to move my car to the other side so I wouldn't have to back out when I leave. Well guess what? as I was reversing the car I think I put the stick on drive instead of reverse that's why I hit a tree and knocked out part of the office brick wall wheewwwwwww!

It happened soo fast, next thing I knew bammmmm there were fallen limbs on top of my front fender and I sled close to the wall. Good thing it wasn't a major impact or else I would probably end up wiht the car inside the building like those you see on tv. That would be a total disaster.

Then again for the second time this morning I messed up the security alarm in the office and it sounded for a long time that sent everyone in investigative mode. I called the police dept and told them that I wasn't able to turn off our alarm system still that darn police officer that I've talked to dispatched a set of police officers. Well it was probably SOP for them to go and check us. As always, the cops were all nice and said they just wanted to make sure we're all ok.

Anyway, I didn't know I got part of the wall knowcked down until later today. Lori said I wonder who hit the brick wall this morning and I said Lori I know I hit the tree and she said "Glenda no you didn't?" I said "yes I did" and Linda said it's ok you probably had you're blonde moment like I usually do.

And she said I am now officially a "blonde", my husband would probably agree 100%. What a day?

This time it's Security Warning!

I got to work early this morning. I am always trying to beat Linda who's always early all the days that I've been working at the office. She's one of the nicest ladies at work she, Lori and I had really bonded alot. We enjoy working together, lunch out together, or take a 15 mins walk before we take our lunch break, we all come to work early for coffee and a little chitchat.

I remember goofy Linda said yasterday that she's gonna be late today for a Dr's appointment. Since I'm a little early this morning and I had the parking lot all to myself I decided to drink my coffee in the car before heading upstairs. It was raining and it felt good that I'm gonna be alone for awhile before my co-workers would start coming in.

I had my own set of keys my boss gave me before she went on her two weeks vacation which started today. I opened the main door and head straight to my cubicle after 3 mins I heard a siren which is not unsually because our building is situated in front of the big hospital in Pinehurst. Next thing I knew Robbie another co-worker was talking with someone at the lounge area. As I was going to see what's going suddenly there stood a tall cop in front of me.

So to make the long story short when I switched on my key I was supposed to deactivate our security code which I didn't do because no one told me so. Apparently once the door opened and the the security code is not punch in it automatically alerts the police dept and a mobile will be dispatched to investigate. It's so funny Robbie was telling the cops I was the culprit. I told the them I didn't know the code and no one told me about security alert when I got the key. They all laughed, they taught me how to deactivate the alarm once you opened the door. Hmmm I love it! I learn something new everyday even if it involves cops. I even offered them coffee before they left.

Tornado Warning!

I heard the news that it's gonna be a wet day yesterday. Off I went to work. By 4pm I peeped through my office window and I noticed that it was raining hard. So by 5pm, as I got out of the parking lot drove down the main road I noticed that conspicuously there were fewer cars on the road considering it was past 5pm. It was weird. I was listening to my cd when I decided to turn my radio on.

I tried changing channel suddenly when I heard the beep sound on my radio and someone said "tornado alert" and the next thing I heard were the words "if you're driving take cover" at the lowest floor of the building, stay out of the road until the weather gets calmer or words to that effect.

Suddenly I panicked because it finally hits me. That's the reason there were fewer cars out on the road. The heavy rain's taking it's toll on me. I was scared, I was half-way home, I needed my husband. I passed by the Harley shop where I was thinking I could stop until the weather gets better. I couldn't go back because it's going to be hard for me though cars are fewer I was thinking at the rate how the rain and the wind is going there's no way I could turn back.

My knees were shaking, my mind was racing with so many thoughts and I was telling myself to stay calm and drive it through. I sure glad I did because in a matter of 5 mins the weather suddenly changed. Close to home it was just drizzling. I drove to town and parked on the side of the road and called my husband he too was worried about me.

Well that tornado warning was real but I guess I panicked first before knowing that it was on another county an hr away from us. Still the heavy downpour continued through the night and this morning the weather was so nice. The only reminder of the bad storm was the fallen trees and leaves that've scattered all over the road. The sun was out and shining, calm after the storm. Like my co-workers have always reminded me NC weather is so unpredictable that eventually I will get used to it with tornado or no tornado.
