GRE

So, I went to the New Horizons Frankfurt office to take my test. You know, the one I registered for in FRANKFURT. Well, after much driving around and freaking out, I find the street and building. Turns out it's a bank.

That makes a lot of sense.

Why you ask? That's because the test was in Herschborn! It's like Houston vs. Clear Lake, or Dallas vs. Fort Worth. It is an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT TOWN!!!

Note to stupid test people: It might be helpful to list the town as Herschborn not Frankfurt (Herschborn) so I go to THE RIGHT FREAKING PLACE.

Once I realize this I walk around downtown Frankfurt bawling my eyes out trying to find my husband and the car. I'm sure I look like a homeless person. I should have added a 40 oz. to complete the ensemble.

Yeah, so, it was too late to make it to the OTHER FREAKING TOWN to take the test. Bonus- the place I need to call is in the states and doesn't open for several more hours. So, we drive the hour and a half back home and I call the place. They will give me a refund and let me reschedule.

The next available test date? January 19th. Great. Now I have the stupid thing hanging over my head for another month.

Merry Christmas.

I am so sorry! I would have been so mad, too! It would have been really nice to have it all done and not have to stress about it for the next few weeks. I suppose it wasn't meant to be...
Merry Christmas if I don't comment before Thursday! :)

Aww I'm sorry! That's so dumb that they didn't put the name of the town down! I would have been crying too!

Wah! j/k Now you can really be prepared. Why don't you go to Dublin or something and forget about the test for a few days.

yaya said...

well I think "CRAP" is order here.
Dublin will be wonderful, as will all your other foreign places and your wonderful Christmas company.

That sucks for sure! Sorry to hear about that. At least now you have more time to prepare but that also means more time to worry about it! Oh, well. Good Luck!!

P.S. You probably could've used a 40 oz. at that point. Haha!
