Friday, I finally completed my 20 10k-runners for the Globe Run for Home and I planned to register them after class the following day at SM Megamall. I had it all planned since I was to have dinner with my batchmates at the same place at around 7 PM. I went with Bob at the Globe Center only to find out that the only available singlets were sized XL to XXXL. We asked the person manning the registration if other sizes would be available within the week. He said he's not sure. I asked if he could call the Glorietta branch to ask if there are available singlets there. He said he did not know the number.
Ok that's it. You're an imbecile. Go find another job.
I called Lia, who was in charge of the 3k and 5k runners, to tell her that there are no more singlets available at Megamall. Luckily, she was on her way to Glorietta so I asked her to call me if there are available sizes there.
Ten minutes later she informed me that the 5k category is closed! Panic! We have 20 5k-runners also and I do not know what to do with them. For the fear that if I register the 10k runners later they would encounter the same fate as that of the 5k-runners, I decided to meet up with Lia at Glorietta and register my batch there.
Since the MRT seemed to have decided to piss off all their commuters by not releasing stored value tickets, I had no choice but to get in line at the Shaw station. So there I was waiting for my turn to reach the counter only to realize that I had fallen in line at the "Exact Fare" window. Good thing I was able to scramble for loose change. I entered the station and was at Ayala 20 minutes later.
Only to realize that I was no longer holding the envelope containing all the runners' forms.
I asked the guard at the Ayala station to call the guard at the Shaw station to ask if my envelope was still at the Exact Fare window. No way I was going to call those 20 people and fill up their forms one by one. Good thing they found it. Bad thing I had to go back.
So fine, after going back and forth I finally reached Globe at Glorietta. Apparently, the universe is not yet through with me because the only singlets available were sized small; other sizes would be available by Monday evening. Crap.
What the hell? I registered all my runners anyway; at least they already have a slot. Even if I had to go back there on Monday for the race kits.
And oh yeah, I registered Bob as well. Even if he finds utmost joy in mocking me. Gotta love girlfriend duties.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHEVY!
