I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
A tad bit of time ago, I received an invitation to a friend of mine, who is a Cudahy Police Officer, retirement party. I was so looking forward to going. So I wrote on the family calendar July 30th.
Not thinking anything about it, I figured I would stop at the store and pickup some beer (not for me since I don’t drink) and some snacks to share. So I did during the week.
Then on Saturday July 30th my family and I got in the car and drove over. When we got there, I pulled up and didn’t see the massive amounts of cars I would have thought I should be there.
My wife says to me, “Maybe it wasn’t at the location I was at.” She then told me, “I have the invitation back home still. Let’s drive back and check.”
So I drove back home. She ran into the house and came back out very upset at me pointing her finger at me.
She asked me, “Who put the date on the calendar?” My five year old daughter answered, “Not me!”
I said, “I did the same day we received the invitation in the mail. Why?”
“Well, it was last Saturday July 23rd and it is as clear as day to the date!”
I asked if I could see it and sure enough it was. My wife told me she was going shopping and that I need to straighten it out and make sure I didn’t hurt anyone’s feelings for missing the party.
So, I came in side, wrote this post and then called them to give my apologies.
I am sorry!!!
