Typical Me

So, I'm still new here. I have been trying to figure out how to do this and be interesting, and engaging, and have good content.

But it's time to show you a little more of me.

I plan events for a living. I swear by checklists. If I need help from a colleague in completing my job, I over inform them. I am thorough. Except when I'm not.

I'm currently working on planning something with our alumni that requires a specific certificate from the Texas Supreme Court. There is a link on the Court's website with info on how to obtain the certificate. Alums keep calling and emailing me to get the link.

One woman emailed me last week, and I thought that I sent her the link she needed, but apparently I had multiple tabs open in my browser. I realized this past Friday that I had not sent her a link to the Texas Supreme Court and instead sent her a link to.... my blog. Yup. It couldn't have even been one of yours, or to my facebook (which is pretty locked down), or one of the other sites I visit throughout the day. So, she was specifically sent to my blog. I think it was the one where I talked about my Fossil flats. I hope she likes my taste in shoes.

After I realized it, I simply apologized for my error and sent her the right link. Hopefully she hadn't gotten around to clicking the link yet and won't even notice. But if you did, ma'am, I am very sorry to have accidentally brought you here. Let's never speak of this again.

So, I tell you this to teach you a lesson. Always double check your work emails. And I guess it shows you something about me - as put together as I may ever appear, I've always just recently done something dumb...

Have you ever embarrassed yourself at work?

  1. Oooh I'd love to hear more about event-planning! I always thought of it as a "dream career" that people only had in movies like The Wedding Planner, haha.

I like comments and read them all but I'm not great about responding to them, so please don't be offended. I would much rather visit your blog instead!
