So I woke up at 5am this morning, showered, packed and checked out of the hotel. And I hopped on the plane and flew home today. I arrived Singapore at about 11am and headed straight to my office. Took a quick lunch, just fruits, and grabbed the keys and drove my boss car to the distributor’s warehouse at the west side of the island. And I started the meeting for 4 hours until 7pm and popped back to office again. And I finally got home about 8pm.
Phew! I could hardly catch my breath the moment I woke up this morning and I was on my feet all the time. I was deprived of my much needed sleep. Past few days was like hell, only managed to get about 5 hours sleep a day!
So, what happened this afternoon when I was in my client’s office today? I took a short break to take a leak after we were about 3 hours into the meeting. I headed towards the toilet, confidently pushed the door and walked right in. Then, my eyes darted around the toilet and it felt kind of weird. I asked myself, “why the hell is the urinary bowl stand doing in the ladies toilet!”. And there I was, standing around for a good minute still wondering what was wrong with the design of the toilet!!
And suddenly, I went “YIKESSS!! I’m in the MEN’s toilet!!”. Aaarrghhhhh!!! You should see how I dashed out of the toilet in a split of a second! Darn!! What the hell was I thinking when I walked right in without looking at the sign outside the door!!!
I wasn’t myself toay. I felt like I was in a trance. I was in a serious sleep deprivation condition. I really need a good break, a really undisturbed break. I need to get away from work or I’ll go crazy soon!!
For your information, this is not my first encounter walking right into the male’s toilet. I was lucky this time there wasn’t anyone in there. My last experience was one of my most embarrassing moment in my life!!
Last year during one of my trips to Philipines, I was dining out with my friend in a restaurant. As usual, I was in a bad need to take a leak and I happened to be on the phone, talking to someone. I was walking and talking, totally engrossed in the conversation. I could feel my hand pushing the door opened and I was still talking on the phone, without realizing that I headed towards the wrong door!! And before I knew it, some guy said to me “Excuse me Mam!!” and I looked up, and there was about 3-4 guys, all turned around and stared hard at me while they stood and took their leak!! What the HECK!!
Jesus Christ!! What was I really thinking!!
I was so calm that I just said, “Oooppsss!! I’m sorry!!”, I turned around and walked out of the door like nothing happened!! LOL! LOL!
And this happened to me over and over again! Seriously, I am having a real problem recognizing signs. Really!! Sometimes I just stopped and scrutinized the toilet signs for a good minute or two before I could differentiate the right one to go to. I’m not kidding!!
Sigh…………..Is there something wrong with my eyes or with me?
Maybe I’m just way too exhausted today. I could hardly stay awake and conscious. I hate being deprived of sleep and I certainly hate feeling like I’m a zombie!
I’m off to bed now before I do anything stupid. I need a good sleep. There’s so much to do at work tomorrow again.
