When I woke up and got ready to leave for work, I noticed that all four of my tires were flat. Needless to say, I arrived forty-six minutes late. I was fired instantly. Poignantly, I dropped my head, began to cry, and left the building. Miserably, I had already missed the 9:00 bus and had to wait in the freezing cold for two hours before another bus would come. After finally reaching my magnificent door step, I realized that I had lost my keys. One wonderful situation after another. What a great day.
