I left work early so that I could help them meet their deadline.

I hurried up.

I waited.

And waited.

The deadline that we wanted to make was at 2:30PM. The last version of the piece was sent at 9:30PM.

Most of that was waiting. Waiting for a photo, waiting for another photo, waiting for a decision, waiting for an opinion, waiting for approval, waiting for the final changes.

By the end of the day I was a little bit irritated. Not making the 2:30PM deadline was not a good first impression to give to the printer and sending the finished product out at 9:30PM meant that I certainly did not need to burn a favor and leave work early.
