I leave for my annual conference next week and realized as I was adding it to the calendar that I had marked an extra day. Huh, I thought to myself, that doesn’t seem right. I check my flight reservation, confirming yeah, I did book myself there a day earlier than needed.
So, I had to change the flight, costing me an additional $200 I didn’t really have or afford to spend. Turns out, this isn’t something my job will reimburse me for either, so I must eat this expense myself.
I have to cancel my haircut and massage (I know, first world problems, feel sorry for me), to cover this cost before I leave since the hotel will use up my entire credit card limit while I’m at conference. Maybe next year I can just dial in instead.
