- I was running late.
- Since I was already running late, I decided to stop at Old McDonald’s* for breakfast. Putting mustard on my sandwich was my fatal flaw, although I didn’t get it all over my shirt until my very last bite.
- I forgot my umbrella at my desk, so I got to walk into my office building in the pouring rain.
- Only to find out that my counterpart was out sick, thus doubling my work load.
- All I wanted for lunch was chicken salad on Ritz crackers, but the convenience store in my office building was out of Ritz crackers (and saltines are not an acceptable substitute).
*That’s what Andrew calls it, so that’s what we all call it.
