What's YOUR worst-case scenario?

Here's mine:
Schedule: Run downtown to drop off job application at lawfirm, run home to meet with mom at 11:00, mom wants to use some of my computer applications. Wrap up for job interview at 3:00.

Get downtown. Drop off application. Distinctive "thwap thwap thwap" of a tire problem.
Bolt rammed into tire. Tire goes flat.
Jack set does not have adequate tools to repair tire.
Adequate tools retrieved. spare tire "doughnut" is dangerously flat. Have to limp to tire store or endanger job interview. Time: 10:00.
Mom's celphone is turned off. Crap.
Have not yet set up computer workstation at home for mom's use. Screen saver, rotating wallpaper, both set to Furry Art, which has a very high level of hardcore gay furry pr0ns. Oops.
Problem: Housemate at home able to let mom into house, but does not necessarily respond to phone calls. Crap.
Bigger problem: ...and mom's bringing a priest with her.

All issues resolved without explosion, but this was rather a unique confluence of problems :)

WOW. I hope you get the job, just to prove to the universe that its little games aren't going to stop you. ;)

Holy crap!

Glad it resolved with minimal drama...

But, holy crap! Someone deserves a hecatomb.

Did your mom notice or say anything about the furry stuff?

I got in before her and shut off the screen saver, so no harm, no foul :)) She did tell the priest that I was a hyena person, though. Which was interesting.

For lack of a better term we will call it hyenatic

At least hyena's an easy species to explain. X3

As this is clearly a SitCom plot escaped into the real world, the wackier the lawfirm, the better the chance you'll get the job.
So, were the lawyers likable buffoons with SpinOff potential?
