Oversleeping after vacationing for two weeks would've been embarrassing, but at least would've made a little bit of sense. But I've overslept for work more than once in my lifetime and definitely showed up later than I was supposed to.
This time, though I actually came in early. A whopping four hours early. Not the best way to kick off my first week back after a two-week vacation, and I could've used that four hours to sleep or work out or do laundry. But I was already dressed and at work, so I ran a couple of errands and spent the rest of the extra time deleting the onslaught of emails that had arrived when I was traveling.
I blamed my early arrival on just being really excited to get to work and tell everyone about my trip and show them my tan.
That's a lie. I'm an idiot who misread my email.
