Rookie Move

So the Crab Feed on Friday was sooo much fun! I was actually on the sub-committee for this event - I had been on the Board of Directors last year and decided not to run again this year, so, feeling bad, I volunteered to help via the sub-committee... and ended up working way harder at the event this year than I did when I was actually on the Board! But it was all still fun. Doing registration and selling raffle tickets at the door I got to see almost every person that came in, which was great.

The crab was delish, the company awesome, and all in all a great night... until I got home and realized that I left my credit card at the bar. Oops!! I honestly have never done that before in my life, and you think that it's something that only drunk people do, but I wasn't even buzzed, let alone drunk. I just left and forget to close out my tab. Duh!

And since this event was held at a specialty club that isn't open every day I was concerned about how I was going to get my card back, so just as I was looking up their phone number and about to enter into panic mode, a friend of mine texted me that he closed it out for me and got my card. Whew! Disaster averted!

I will get my card from him tomorrow and will never do that again. So the moral of the story is??? Always leave behind a trustworthy friend to clean up after your mistakes. Ha! ;)

P.S. I also helped out by assisting with the Raffle - I played Vanna with the prizes and then handed them out to the lucky winners (all 74 prizes!). And afterwards my hubby told me how fun it was to watch me up there in front of 500 people, knowing that he was the lucky guy who got to take me home. Aww! That made my night!!
