1st 3pm Friday,

One week late, date of occasion June 6th

Well it's my first 3pm Friday of the year which I didn't get to attend due to impromptu Orlando trip that lasted from 7am - midnight. For sake of reminding self in the future of how to pack properly for one day trip with boss, allow me to outline the following:

7am - arrive to work at assigned time, boss 45 min. late b/c alarm didn't go off
7:45 - leave for Orlando
Insist on 2 stops on the way up to use bathroom - hey I'm clearly 8 months pregnant, they knew what they were getting into when they invited self
Eat snack of grapes on drive up, boss can't complain about eating in his car b/c I'm pregnant and they don't leave any crumbs!
11am - 12:30 - meeting with Disney
1-2 - eat lunch at sucky Moe's Southwest Grill
eat more grapes on way to meeting
2-5 - meeting with Universal
5-6 - stop at Starbucks for snack and coffee, this is when I knew boss had no intension of providing dinner, regardless of the fact that it's a 3 hour drive home.
6-8 - stop at downtown Universal to buy products, I grab banana and cheese croissant from lunch box and eat while the others are shopping.
8-midnight - drive home, halfway stop to get Burger King because boss is finally hungry, order strawberry milkshake for snack but it is so loaded with sugar and fake taste that throw away after 3 sips. Gross, hate Burger King.

Lesson - pack a lunch box, it's just easier then waiting for others to make sensible decisions about food.

Your boss is an insensitive clod for taking a pregnant woman on a business trip and not feeding her dinner until 10-pm-ish! At least you had grapes for trip to Orlando. And next time, he needs to ask where you prefer to eat since some food makes us sick. eyeroll!

That's funny - but as demonstrated, I know my co-workers so well that I can work around them in most situations. This one was the perfect case for a lunch box which I planned ahead and packed meticulously!
