Her name sounded like “Sorah”

I got woken up at 8:00am this morning by a strange woman calling me on my cell phone.

  • *ring ring!*
  • *ring ring!*
  • *ring ring!*
  • Me: (I stumble out of bed and flip open my cell phone) "...Hello...?"
  • Her: "Hello!"
  • Me: (Groggy) "Hi...."
  • Her: "Did I wake you up? You probably hate me. We moved the date up for the [something]."
  • Me: (Trying to figure out who I was talking to) "Who is this?"
  • Her: "This is Sorah from [something]."
  • Me: "You have the wrong number."
  • Her: "Oh! I'm sorry. You hate me!"
  • *click*
My inner-clock/schedule was thrown off. I went halfway back to sleep and was later half-an-hour late to work.

What the hell time you go to work? Lazy ass.

It takes me around 10 minutes to get to work, 15 if there's a lot of traffic. The fastest trip to work from my apartment was just over 6 minutes (with an empty road and all lights in my favor).

Work starts at 9:00am. And by that I mean I stroll in anywhere between 8:50am and 9:30am. Most of the team shows up at best by 9:30am, but more likely at, or just after, 10:00am. Someone is considered "late" if they are not around by 10:30am or 11am, or if they missed the occassional 10:00am meeting.

For most of those same people, work ends around 5:30pm or 6:00pm. I rarely ever leave before 6:30pm, often staying until 7:00pm or 7:30pm.

Once or twice a year, the team sometimes has "crunch time." Crunch time doesn't normally affect me (although I have my own similar periods). During these times, they try to show up sometime before 10:00am and stay through a company-paid dinner until as late as maybe 9:00pm or 10:00pm. These periods can last between maybe a couple of weeks to a couple of months.
