I have this secret talent of remembering dates. If you tell me your birthday I will remember it forever. Unfortunately this is the only numbers-related talent I have, so I embrace it.
This comes in handy for my job. I schedule a bazillion things a week for my job and then someone will ask me, “what’s going on July 14?” and boom I can list off the three things on the calendar for that date. Awesome, right?
Today’s conversation at The Office went something like this:
Boss: “So this weekend’s really busy, especially on Saturday…”
Me: (looking over the calendar) “Yes, Saturday you will be busy.”
Boss: “And Sunday I have a few things too.”
Me: “Yeah, and Sunday is your anniversary.”
Boss: panicked look…”THIS SUNDAY?”
Me: “Yes, June 12th, right?”
Boss: “I forgot all about that, I better start planning!”
Life lesson: even if your anniversary is on a calendar you look at everyday you may forget. If you are lucky someone will just remind you of all the important dates in your life.
