One thing I learned: mini vans require three different windshield wipers, three sizes, each sold separately..
so, I went to buy windshield wipers for my van,which is usually left to Hubby,
but I wanted to do it to save him the time.
I made sure I looked up the right size, chose a good brand,etc.
when I got home and handed him the box, he said,'where's the other one?'
what other one? isn't there one box for the set? he looked at me with a smile.
'Didn't you notice it showed different sizes for the blades?'
yes, but I didn't know they were sold separately.
|Note to self: BUY TWO WIPERS!|
Lesson two: ask what is in a sandwich you're ordering if you never had it before:
I stopped at a restaurant on the way to class and ordered a stir fry chicken quesadilla.sounded yummy. What i failed to consider is what they use for stir fry.
I sometimes like bell peppers and onion, but not right before a three hour class.
I'd end up hiccuping the entire time.
|yummy,just not a good choice before class|
Two very simple, yet important lessons I'll remember. some may consider mistakes to be stupid inconveniences, but, as an educator I love using everything as a way to learn and grow.
Have you learned anything new lately?
