Well, shit.  

I, despite several warning signs to the contrary, managed to be *so certain* that the Meat Loaf Farewell Tour concert that I bought tickets for in _December_ was tonight, May 19, that I did not check the tickets until I got to the concert venue tonight and nobody was there.

The concert was on Friday, the 17th.


And we didn’t get the house we were hoping to.

I’m going to go watch Sherlock and drown my sorrows now. *sigh*

Oh, that sucks! Bits of wrong data have a way of sticking in the head sometimes.

That sucks" just doesn't seem to cover it....

And now I shall go verify all my various calendars.

Oh fuck for both bits.

(I did once get panicky when I realised, a couple of days past when a gig was supposed to be, that it was now a couple of days past and I still hadn't received the tickets. This was resolved when I realised the tickets had been on sale 14 months rather than 2 months ahead, and it was still a year to go.)

That is just horrible! I certainly hope that you consoled yourself.

Ugh. *hugs* Looks like he's in Manchester GB next weekend... Taking a ferry and then driving looks like about a 5 hour trip from Dublin (which is where I assume you are, or thereabouts anyway). ;)
Hope something goes better in your week!

I did that once - thought the tickets were for an evening performance when they turned out to be for that day's matinee, and there was no evening performance. We had friends with us. I had to refund their money. Worse, I felt like the biggest idiot on the planet. (They were super-nice about it, though.) Sheez, I'm getting upset again just thinking about it.

I hope Sherlock helped!

That's just...Awful.
