Activity: Getting Ready for Basic Counselling Workshop
The day did not start off on a good note. I mean, WHAT NOTE? I was scurrying around that morning, searching for a SUPPOSEDLY nice top. Digressing a little, I don't have much of a choice if you can really consider black and white choices. My wardrobe has been sanctified into a ying and a yang territory. Translation: [Right side - White] [Left side - Black] So all the fiasco that took place that fateful morning was really unnecessary. I stepped out the front door a little after 7.45am.
Activity: Making my way to the Basic Counselling Workshop at SRJC
I was still at the bus stop. I made up my mind to take the bus and train and nothing else that day. I sure did choose the RIGHT time to save cost. I got really tired of waiting that I almost ran down to the road to stop a COMFORT cab that was leisurely cruising down awaiting passengers. Up, the bus, down again, walked briskly to the train station and waited. Time check. 8.15am!
Called Jac up because I was beyond desperate. Whilst in the train, I realized that I should have alighted at AMK simply because there were so many buses that could take me to my destination. Enough said, I asked Jac for the location of SRJC. Funnily, she was as clueless as I was! But, she explained to me what I could potentially say to the cab driver should he or she didn't know how to get there. Walked over to the taxi stand only to find a LONG queue of people and NOT a single taxi in sight! Made my way to the bus stop and decided to resign to the fate that has been written for me that day. What else could be worse? Time check: 8.50am!
I arrived at the Fusion House only to find that an examination was going on. No sign of a workshop anywhere in that vicinity! I pulled myself together and in the sweltering heat made my way to the GO.
Me: I understand that there is a Basic Counselling Workshop conducted here. Can you tell me where the venue is?
Clerk: Oh my.. They didn't tell you about it?
Me: (under my breath: DUH!! I wouldn't be here asking you about it if I had known!!) Tell me what?
Clerk: They've cancelled the course. They didn't tell you about it?
Clerk: A few others came down as well..
Me: It's ok then. Thank you!!!
I didn't know what to do!
I felt really cheated.
I was seriously looking forward to the course!
I made my way out of the premise!
