Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong
Murphy's Law.

So I had a deadline this afternoon at 4 PM. A friend and I agreed to split this project. Her electricity went out almost all day. My internet is acting out. It's 8PM and I still cant submit the project because my friend's part is not finished yet. I dont have my headset with me so I cant help her out, as I'm waiting for her email in a very loud and rather crowded Starbucks due to the said internet connection.

Seriously, I'm pissed. I hate missing deadline, especially for such an important client. An inter national organization, the one that I wished could continue to work for.

I dont get my internet connection. It was fine until I was going to email my part. Each time I tried to attached my files, the internet connection went AWOL. As soon as I unplug the cable or shut down my laptop, it went back online! I mean, seriously!

So I drag mom to Starbucks just for the internet and I've been here for almost two hours waiting for my friend's email. She still hasnt finished. Had I not been in a jam, I would've like the live entertainment, the gal has a lovely voice and the repertoire suits my liking. But at the moment I feel sick from panicking and way too much sugar from the brownies and the chocolate drink.

What a way to spend satuday night!

update: the car broke down around 10PM when we were about to go home.. great!

It's over four hours later now. I trust the technical problems over over by now.

Yet from times I had to cope with that deadlines myself I know missing one really sucks. Especially in case of a crucial client. I hope they will show some flexibility and will take into account it's due to circumstances beyond your control.

Good luck!
