Getting UP too early ! Mr. Preparation

Well, I sit here at 6 a.m. on tues. morning, just now realized that the Real Estate exam is thurs at 8 a.m. not tuesday!! Dahum
5 cups of strong coffee now percolating threw me, and wondering what to do to get off the caffeine high!! Dragged my ass out of bed at 4 to get three more hours of studies in, and I thought, is the exam in the regular classroom? well yeah it's in the regular classroom, bigfoot, your just 2 days early!!

Mister preparation, preparation, preparation.... needs to get his information, information correct!! Thank god I didn't wander over to school and sit in the class, no doubt there is another exam scheduled for this a.m.

This is almost as bad as forgetting to set clock back in the fall and showing up to work on a sunday morning an hour early. Never did the spring forward mistake, showing up an hour late and thinking I was on time. But stood around a restaurant on a sunday morning wondering where all the early cooks were?? Then saw bldg security guard looking in window, and had to explain to Rent a Barney ( his nick name for me was "Alice" the t.v. show waitress from some years ago)that I wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer!!

So, bloggers commiserate with me and share your MR. Preparation/ Ms. Preparation screw up!! Could use a chuckle!!

Mood on this one is
Caffeinated !!

Unfortunately,planning on going to Summer Screwl!! Got to get out of school and then perhaps a break. Of, course I have to pass Stats exam I just got out of... to continue in school...time will tell!! Have a very bad feeling about that exam!

I have many different stories on this topic but I will 'one up' yours. When I arrived at the designated classroom (it was different from our normal room) to take the final, I only recognized a few classmates, the rest were all strangers.

Like you I had been studying like crazy, late nights, yadda yadda yadda, so I put my mind off of the strangeness of the room and concentrated on a few last things before the exam was handed to me.

I was horrified when I found I could not even answer the first question. I looked at the document more closely and discovered it was the right subject, but wrong course number.

My true exam was for the next day.
