just wonderful

got up at 7:00 to get to college testing at 9. got breakfast ad jack in the box and got a coffee from the drive through coffee hut *12 oz vanilla latte extra vanilla..mmmm* and got to palomar college an hour before testing started. saw a sign *must have visitor permit* so i asked a student who was waiting outside the door. he told me i have to go all the way around to the back to get a permit from some machine and its $2. he said "you can walk it. no problem." half an hour goes by, im walking around the billions of parkinglots by myself. lot 12, lot 18 lot 336..blah machines. saw some cops but they werent within earshot so i couldnt yell for help. saw some motorcycle guys luck. they didnt know where i should go.
i asked a mother and a student, they said the machines were all the way where i had come from, but seeing as how i only had 10 minutes to get there and get back for testing, i figured ah screw it. so i came back and that one student..mike..was still there. "did you find it?" he said. "no." "here, ill go with you" and he proceeds to walk towards my car in hopes of getting in. "i think ill go by myself. just tell me where to get a parking permit" so he tells me some roundabout way. but the way he tells me leads to a one way street...a one way street that goes in the opposite way im coming from. oh bugger >=/
so i talk to a cop lady and she says i dont need a parking permit cuz its the weekend. *curses*
so i go back to the testing center and mike is there once again and he hands me some form i need to fill out. i ask the lady if im supposed to fill it out im here for the 9:00 appointment. she says yes. by the time i fill it out and turn it in she goes. "well theyre not going to let you in NOW...reschedule on monday" >=/ *STOMP!*

"you mean to tell me that after i get here an hour early, have strangers talk to me and try to get in my car, and i STILL cant find a parking permit only to realize i dont need one after all, and after i have to fill out this paperwork which, as you will see, i already filled out online, i cant test today?"



"reschedule monday."


i hate college.
