Why Does It Always Rain On Me

This morning I had two choices.

1. Catch that train, and not find my umbrella. (Thought process: It’s raining outside, but it’s sure to stop by the time I get to work. It’s a full city block walk to the work building from where the bus drops me off, but I’m a good person – I deserve to get a break today! Right?)

2. Find the umbrella and miss my train, putting into jeopardy the carefully timed dash to the train, then dash to the bus, then dash to the work building from the other side of the business park. (Thought process: I hate missing the fast train! I don’t want to get the next train, it’s always full of smelly and annoying people and I never get a seat!)

I picked number 1, of course. Then the train was late so I would in fact have caught the fast train anyway if I had stopped to get the umbrella. Then when I got off the bus? It wasn’t just raining cats and dogs, it was hailing taxis. I was so drenched by the time I got to my desk that I wrung water out of my hair and clothes as if I were freshly out of a shower that I’d taken and forgotten to take my clothes off for first. (Thought process: It’s pretty empty in my office area. Surely if I take my pants off to dry nobody would even notice? heh. I restrained myself from doing that.)

Now I’ve worked out why this happened. It is because I am greedy and lustful.

Greed: Very High
Gluttony: High
Wrath: Medium
Sloth: High
Envy: Medium
Lust: Very High
Pride: Medium

    That’s why we get on so well as blogging mates, eh? I’m not even going to take the quiz. “Hailing taxis,” that’s quite the imagery as I see 1000Kg vehicles dropping out of the sky as you try to dodge them on your way into the office. Hope it’s not “Hailing lorries” when you depart work.

    Oh yeah, that’s a good Travis song too.

    Mark: I may have exaggerated. It was more like someone standing over the top of me, pouring buckets of water on my head. Which is unpleasant but I suppose better than being struck by an airborne vehicle. I may have to wear my swimmers to work tomorrow.
    (Also: NO IDEA why the stupid quiz code didn’t show the words in white on the left, or the bar graph on the right which showed how far up the scale I was – I was so proud too, especially of the Lust. heh. Then it simply showed up in brown against brown or something. meh.

    I have no idea how many times I’ve been rained on during my walk to class, both in high school and college.

    Yet I have never bought an umbrella.

    Just another tidbit of evidence going to show that yes, I am an idiot.

    Oh I must take the quiz now!

    Frank, we were all too polite so say anything.
    Bobbie: I bet I beat you 🙂
