I am special today

Or so says my coffee mug.

Why am I special?

Because at 7 a.m., when I arrived at work, I entered my alarm code and received the following message:

<Code not valid>


Entered it again, carefully and deliberately pushing each key.

<Code not valid>

Pause. Waiting for the dreaded inevitable.

Should I back out of the doorway with my hands in the air? What is standard operating procedure here? Will it hurt if I get tazered? Who should I make my one phone call to?

After standing there dumbfounded, I decided that the K.C. SWAT team had far more important items to tend to. Or, they were running late.

Either way, I decided it was safe to proceed into the building. I dug out the number for our H.R. director, made the appropriate calls  and resolved the situation.

No tazer gun. No big dramatic arrest. Just a mug of coffee that reads, “You are special today.”

Because sometimes you need a little extra validation.
