I tell you what, guys… Only me.
This morning, I was running a bit late, as usual, for an interview out on the East Coast. (But this time it was the rain’s fault!) No… Actually, it was a tree. Seriously though. A tree made me late for my interview.
When I woke up, it was a pretty average day. There was a little bit of drizzle, nothing too crazy, (though enough to make me whip out my anti-frizz cream — although, just being in South Carolina will do that).
But when I was ready to leave, finally having gotten myself together with likely just enough time to spare, the wind picked up out of nowhere! Seriously, the trees were swaying so hard I though they were all going to snap. And then… One did. Yup. A a tree fell in the driveway of the house I was airBnBing at. (Is airBnBing an official word…?)
I called the person whom I was renting the space from and they were very good about getting me a phone number for someone who does tree removal in Greenville, SC.
Knowing I would be late, I went ahead and contacted the office where I was interviewing. I was told I would still be able to make the interview if I made it within an hour and a half.
Fortunately, the tree company was able to get to our location pretty quickly. They assessed the problem with ease and within 45 minutes, I was out of there and on my way.
I got to the interview with time to spare and… well, what can I say? I GOT THE JOB!!! Hats off to my lovely friends at Tree Service Greenville. I owe you one.
