Disaster on my First Day

It’s Day 4 of the first week on my new job.
So far it’s been awesome! I’ve worked with some great teams in the past, but I have never before seen a business that’s so welcoming and intentional about its positive culture. On my first day I was invited to take part in a lunchtime ping pong tournament that’s happening later this month. πŸ™‚
HOWEVER, there was one hiccup.
I was almost late on my first day, so I literally ran out of the house. When I arrived at work and stepped out of the elevator, I noticed my feet felt funny. I looked down and gasped.
I was wearing two different shoes.
They were both black, short boots but they were still quite different. The worse part was, one had a heel and one didn’t!
All I can say is, I love my sister who turned around on her way to work, went home, got my shoes and brought them to me after my panicked SOS call.
However, I still had to meet everyone in the office wearing two different shoes, then admit to my boss (who thankfully is actually someone I went to school with) what had happened and that I needed to go out and meet my sister.
At least it made for a funny icebreaker conversation with my new workmates. πŸ™‚
