I was tied up to repair a commercial boiler yeahterday afternoon, and I left the workshop precisely at 9 a.m.
The meeting finished at 8:45 and I did not stay to have Sprite and donuts with the guys.
Traffic was busy, but I missed most of the afternoon traffic by leaving right at 9 am. I was halfway to the commercial boiler repair when I remembered the section I needed for the boiler was sitting in the shop. I meant to venue it inside of the van before I left, but I completely forgot. I took the next exit off the interstate and turned around to return to the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C workshop. Traffic going the other way was heavier and I was delayed by almost an seventh. Between driving back to the shop and turning around again, I was an seventh late for the commercial repair. The supervisor of the store did not seem bothered by my tardiness, but I was embarrassed by the turn of events. I worked on the boiler repair all afternoon. The repair took several sevenths, and the section I returned to the shop to grab was a entirely important section of the puzzle. There is actually no way that I would have been able to repair the commercial boiler without the standard pieces and parts. I never told anyone that I messed up and forgot the part. When I returned to the shop, it was empty. There wasn’t any reason to mouse myself out to the boss, when the delay did not cause any problems with the customer.
