My alarm woke me up as usual, then I went through my phone and found a message. I opened the message and guess what it was. A break up text from my girlfriend telling me about how our relationship was not working and so on. I completely lost it and didn’t know what to do, I couldn’t even reply.

I bathed anxiously for about four hours and couldn’t even eat breakfast. I looked at the time and it was 10:15am and I was supposed to be at work by 8:30am. I panicked and ran out to catch the taxi. While I was waiting for the taxi, I searched myself and realised that I forgot my wallet. I ran back home to fetch it. I was finally in a taxi, heading to work then I was like let me call work to tell them that I will be late and guess what? I forgot my phone at home.

Then while I was still thinking about that break up text, the taxi passed through my destination and I wasn’t even aware. I realised way too late, I got off at the wrong destination, one hour away from my work place and I walked since there were no taxis going there. I arrived at work by lunchtime and my colleague, who is also my friend, saw me getting in and said, “Hey, what are you doing here on your off day?”
