Stunt Double, Please?

Would someone please find my stunt double? This week is just going to be too damn dangerous for me.

If anyone doubted it, it truly is a Monday. I illustrate my Monday thusly...

I was in a meeting, in a conference room. I forgot a copy of something so I headed over to my office to pick it up. I was exiting the conference room when I reached for my badge and tried to swipe it against a non-existent magnetic card scanner. Why was it non-existent? Because they don't put card readers inside conference rooms! Only one of the five people noticed and that should have been humiliation enough. But no. I turned to the group and announced hey, I just tried to badge myself out of the conference room! As if my stupidity needed to be highlighted. And why isn't it highlit?

it's not highlit because we speak American gosh-darnit. and rules aren't ruley enough if there aren't 8.257 million exceptions to the said rule.

i will feel less stupid about wondering why my swipey card didn't work this morning when it was because i was pulling on the wrong door! 'doh

don't worry, i'm sure we've all done it. *cough*

if it's any consolation... at my old company you'd have to badge out of all the data centers.

That's about as bad as the last week that I tried to unlock the door to my office building with my car's keyless entry clicker-thingy.

Ooops, still have to use a key to get in...

I just didn't admit it to anyone else (until now).

you and I may be twins separated at birth. HA HA HA HA HA HA I do stuff like that all the time.

Hey .. don't feel so bad. I've knew someone once who once swiped their badge to get into the restricted access area, and then instead of grabbing the door knob and pulling the door open, they walked right into the door.
