I was absolutely convinced I was supposed to work from 2:30 till 11:30. So convinced in fact, that I lined up childcare accordingly and arranged a doctor's appointment to start and end leading into my shift. Everything worked out perfectly...if I had been right.
There are plenty of good reasons for my mistake--I don't work every day, the station has asked a lot of me lately, I've worked several different times, I have no set shift, we only communicate by email so there is no double check of a shift schedule for me...But I don't make excuses. It was my mistake, pure and simple.
Little mistakes with big consequences. Such is life, I suppose. How do you use mistakes in your writing?
