I started a new gig last week. My first day was very successful. Remembered everyone's name, figured out what the company does (which is good considering I'm heading up marketing for the company) and…found the bathroom. On the second day I not only found the bathroom…I somehow managed to flush my keycard down the toilet. Didn't even know it until several minutes after the automatic flusher.
Trying to be smart, I'd placed my keycard on the top of the toilet paper roll so that I would remember it. When I was leaving the stall I must have shot it into the toilet when I put my laptop bag over my shoulder. It didn't even hit the floor. Went straight in. Now that. Is. Talent.
But that wasn't the end of the story.
Did I also mention that it was after hours and everyone had gone?
And that I didn't know how to get out of the building?
And I had to be at dinner 5 minutes ago?
And that I had to call the CEO to get out of the bathroom and the office?
Yep. It was a banner day for showing off my talent. No, not my marketing talent but still–talent is talent right? If there's ever a contest where you need to shoot something backwards into a small hole using a handbag I'm your gal.
Let's just bask in the glow of my athletic talent. Shall we?
