I told myself that I wasn't going to write on here during the week, but I am just frustrated. Our office had planned to go golfing on Tuesday to celebrate the most recent tax deadline. I was particularly excited because I was going to try out my new spiffy golf clubs. Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy for a majority of the day, so we ended up canceling the trip. I was bummed. I tried everything to convince my coworkers that we should still go. I even used the Bart and Lisa Simpson technique of "Can we go golfing today?" repeated over and over incessantly (and very annoyingly) to try to get everyone to concede. ...but to no avail (except that they were so annoyed that they wanted to physically abuse me... in the ear).
Later on in the day after I had resigned myself to working, one of our work associates came into the office and mentioned to me that we should go golfing on Friday (today!). Hope had once again crept into my life, and I was able to look forward to a few good hours of golfing on Friday. Well, today... I am sad to report that a client (who was coming to town today) called (with a tee time already set up) and invited my coworker to golf... thus creating a five-some. Someone had to get kicked out of the group, and since I am a girl (and knowing that the client is one of those people who thinks that girls shouldn't golf), I was the fifth wheel. Dang it! One of my coworkers offered to stay behind, but I know that it is better if I am the one left behind. We have tentatively planned a golf afternoon next week, but I am skeptical about whether the afternoon will actually transpire. I have other coworkers I can possibly go with next week who are out of town today or have other obligations, but they're they ones who are harder to charmingly manipulate into golfing. Ah well, I guess I can't have it all.
