A stinker of a day

Some days just rot. It is almost tangible from the start. And once it starts, Fate plays along with you all the way till the end, mocking at your absolute helplessness…

Like how you get up late on a time crunched day…
Like how you have to miss the morning jog because you got up late…
Like how you miss your usual bus in the morning…
Like how you get a seat which is splashed with bright sunlight all through the journey to office…
Like how you cannot sleep in the bus as you usually do because you are actually sweating in the morning…
Like how you get stuck in a long line of security check and swipe in queue…
Like how you see a cycle being whisked away by someone else when you just thought you could get to it…
Like how the elevator door closes on your face as you desperately press the button…
Like how you are loaded and loaded with work all through the day and it just keeps on coming…
Like how you have to miss the evening swim and sauna because of work…
Like how you miss your stop on your way back in bus because you overslept…
Like how you have to still honor a prior appointment but it is raining…

Boy. What a stinker of a day…

Like how you could have read a few pages of your novel in bright sunlight instead of sleeping...
Like how you could have jogged from the gate to the building instead of taking the cycle so that you didn't miss your morning jog...
Like how you could have taken the stairs instead of the elevator...
Like how you could have walked a bit in the rain and enjoyed it...

b) "Like how you get stuck in a long line of security check and swipe in queue…" - you need RFID man. then you can not help the paani puri Q though.
