You know you're overly efficient when...

... your guest is a year early for your wedding. This story in MSNBC.com reports that a guy was actually a year early for his buddy's wedding, which was supposed to be held next year. Talk about getting your dates mixed up! Plus the poor guy flew across the Atlantic for the wedding and spent a bomb on his airplane tickets. This will definitely be one experience he'll never forget!

So the lesson to be learned here is: a) Always tell people the full details of your wedding; and b) If you're the guest, double check the date or wait for an official wedding card to arrive!

Happy working Thursday, folks!
