I work as a heating and A/C contractor and yesterday I had a honestly frightening moment. I take my job honestly seriously and yesterday I was multiple hours late for my job. It was not something I was proud of. I felt ashamed to be so late. The way it happened was the evening before I couldn’t get any sleep, I’m not sure exactly how it happened although I was just lying in bed all evening unable to get any rest at all. I couldn’t get my brain to shut down, I had a million thoughts buzzing through my head at the time. Finally, only a few hours before it was time for me to go and get up to go to work and service people’s heating and air conditioners I had finally fallen asleep. The moment I closed my eyes it felt as if minutes had passed however it was absolutely multiple hours. I woke up to see that it was 11:00 a.m. and I had a couple of missed calls from my job. I felt so terrible. I took my job honestly seriously and I was supposed to be there 3 hours ago at 8:00 am! I had my alarm on my cell phone and on my alarm clock set although I think I was just so incredibly weary that I slept right through it. Sometimes I can sleep through almost anything it seems. I’m just a deep sleeper when I get undoubtedly too weary so I had to set my alarm extra loud to wake me up after I came home from work that day, however luckily I didn’t get in any trouble or anything since it was my first offense and I have a good standing with my boss, although I was careful not to let it happen again and I was able to go and work on people’s heating and A/C units adore I normally do without issue.
