except maybe…

I thought this yesterday.

Until I was awoken this morning at 5am by a call from back East.

I want to place a neon sign on the parentals lawn that reads:

Unless you’re dying, or someone has died, do not call me before 10am EST.

Or perhaps just…

There is a 3 hour time difference between coasts. Check your watch before you dial.

I can handle being woken up anytime after 7am, but not at 5am on a weekday. The call wasn’t important either.

“Did you get my emails?”

No I’ve been sleeping. It’s 5am.

“Oh, right. Well, I need you to fax that paper back to me”

I told you I’d send it to you when I got to work. Where the fax machine is.

“When will that be?”

In 4 hours. Again, it’s 5am.

“So not now?”

No! I’m hanging up now.

What pleasant sounds were you woken up to this morning?

  1. HA! The mysteries of time zones will be forever lost on some people. At least you warned them that you were hanging up.

    I have not yet been woken up this year by a woodpecker eating my house inches from my head, but it’s really just a matter of days.

  2. Even when they’re in California, they are still asking me the time. Oi and vey. I had about a dozen e-mails this morning too. You’d think after the first two, they’d figure I was still asleep…

    Snow gets traded for woodpecker. Fun times all around! ;)

    Woke up as usual to the 6:45am sounds of the school bus picking up the neighbor kid.

  4. Wow. That’s an early bus ride!

    I usually wake up to sounds of the gamer blowing stuff up.

  5. Ha! I saw this comment pop up in my e-mail and thought it was for the band name post. Ah, too funny. ;)
