That's what it was. You all know how excited I was to go to the class today.
Well, I got all dressed up. I drove 38.6 miles to take the boys to their sister so she could watch them. Back this way another 11.4 miles to the shop. To hear...well I'll tell you in a moment. Then another 11.4 miles back to my daughters to pick up the boys. Then another 38.6 miles back home. Did you add that up? Almost 100 miles. Normally we guard our gas money very closely but this was one of my May for ME things to try this class--at least one time to see what it was like.
Bah humbug and all that.
They cancelled the class. The emailed all the participants. Except me. You know, I'm the new one. They didn't look in the sign up book for new participants. They just emailed the regulars.
It was kind of frustrating from the get go because when I went in...it went kind of like this (and it was almost exactly as I wrote it):
Them: "Oh, you were supposed to sign up."
Me: "I did. In the notebook."
Them: "Well then you should have been sent a supply list."
Me: "No, but I did give my email when I signed up"
Them: "We get our wires crossed sometimes. It's no big deal. Your teacher is _____________ and she is always late but you'll have a really fun time. Just go have a seat and they will be here soon".
Me: I go sit. And sit. for 25 minutes. Why oh why didn't I bring my Ahhhh to work on since it was supposed to be published today?
A different Them: "We are so sorry but she cancelled the class. She emailed everyone but you because you are new. You need to sign up in the book"
Me: "I did sign up in the book, I left my email address and I paid"
Them (to the other them and not to me): "Where is the art quilt club book?" "I don't know, haven't seen it" "We need to see if she's in there" "She says she is I just don't know where the book is"
Me: "Here, here's my business card with my email address on it. You can check it with your book"
I left. I was sad. I was truly sad about the HUGE waste of gas. I seriously doubt I'll go back.
