So, I didn’t make my promotion meeting. My bosses said they could only wait until the afternoon and then if I didn’t make it in time I’d have to postpone it to a later date. I got to the office five minutes after five, and they said we’d have to reschedule. No one at my work ever finishes work at five like we’re supposed to, so it really irked me that they refused to have a meeting with me. They stayed at work for another two hours. They definitely could have sat down with me.
I didn’t make it in time because the problems with my car were a lot worse than I thought originally. In fact, I needed extensive car repairs. Local to Cambridge, there aren’t many car workshops around so it also took ages to get my car to a workshop that had the tools to fix it. Apparently my car needed a special new car part to be able to work properly. I don’t really understand any of the specifics. If I’m being honest, I wasn’t listening.
What I do know is that to do the car repairs and install the new part, I needed an expert auto electrician. In the Cambridge area, auto electricians are highly sought after, so once I arrived at the workshop, I then had to wait two hours for help. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, because I’m not, but it is kind of annoying. We need more auto electricians to move to Cambridge so that there aren’t such long wait times. The guy who fixed my car this afternoon did a great job so I’d go back to him, and then hopefully with a surplus of auto electricians I wouldn’t have to wait so long again.
I don’t know when my rescheduled promotion meeting will be. My bosses aren’t going to make it easy for me to get another meeting with them.
