Today… could be one of which I regret for the rest of my life.
So, 5fm, probably South Africa’s most popular radio station (who are responsible for Linkin Park’s SA tour), are running a competition where you are to say what you are willing to do, put yourself through for a chance to be ON STAGE with Linkin Park for 3 songs, during one of their shows here in SA.
So, I entered. Why would I NOT want to be on stage with my favorite band of all time.
I kept my phone on my person ALL day expecting this call from the radio station. But the show that was giving the ticket away, was drawing to a close so I figured they had chosen someone by then. I then for some reason left my phone in the staff room at work and went to manage one of the classrooms(I work at a school). During my 20 minutes away, 3 missed calls and 1 voicemail was left. I returned to find this.
I then called the voicemailbox to discover probably one of the worst things I ever will. The radio station had called ME, regarding the competition. TWICE! Left me a nice voicemail saying they will call back in 10 minutes, then AGAIN!
One of my colleagues, who was in the staff room at the time, instead of answer the bloody thing left it to ring.
As much as I’d like to blame him, I FUCKED UP!!! Can’t actually believe my hard luck on this one. SUCKS TO BE ME!!! ON STAGE!!! WITH LP!!! AAAARRRGH! WHAT AN IDIOT! :’(
