The Dog Ate My Homework, 2006 StyleNov 9, 2006
I had a meeting this morning at the Web 2.0 "Sumference" with someone who lives in the East Bay. (For those unfamiliar with the geography of the Bay Area, to get from the East Bay to San Francisco generally requires traversing a bridge.)
Fifteen minutes before the meeting, I received a call from said person saying they would be late. Reason? Her Toyota Prius, which has a sticker allowing carpool lane access, had mechanical issues so she was driving her other car and waiting in the interminable toll lines with the other gas guzzlers.
Excuses that are bloggable always get a pass.
