Yesterday was a rather trying day for Barbie at work for many reasons but the Barbie Fails moment came at the end of the day.
As the day came to a close Barbie went to get her purse as she was packing up to leave for the day. Since the workstations have drawers for you to put your belongings in, desks are not permanent but rather signed out by employees so you may not have the same desk daily, Barbie had placed her purse inside the drawer that seemed to correspond with her desk. From here I give you the play-by-play in Barbie’s own words:
When I realized my purse was trapped in the bottom drawer, I exclaimed
“OMG, my purse is locked in the drawer and Karen’s gone home for the
night”. Laury and I ran to the window of the 26th floor and saw that her
car had already left the Roy Thompson Hall parking lot. I ran to find
another lady with the hope of finding a spare key, but upon searching
her collection, we noted it was missing. Laury called someone else to
see if they had a key; also came up empty. At that point, we started to
laugh uncontrollably and decided it was the funniest thing that had
happened all day.
My purse spent the night, alone, locked in the bottom drawer.
And the offending co-workers version of events, after they had realized what happened:
Very sorry…I didn’t even think you were using the drawers as I saw
your backpack on the floor and thought that’s all you had..I used that
set of drawers as there is no key where I was at, it won’t happen again,
I’m so sorry.
The best part of all this was a somewhat flustered, yet in good spirits, Barbie getting into my car explaining what had happened and then realizing “I have no money, no I.D., no cell phone and no car keys. So it’s a good thing you’re the one driving”.
For the record I’m always the one driving when it comes to going to Toronto for work 😉
