For example did you ever wake up early in the middle of the week and get yourself ready for school or work only to find out that you were off that day.

This never happened to me because I'm very organized

But has anybody ever done this?

No I would be the first out of school or work, if I even heard these words "Day Off"

No, God invented a little thing called the Coffea plant whose fruit is processed into coffee beans by humans into an incredible elixir called Coffee. The drinking of which keeps one aware and awake.

Yes, when I was in 1st grade I had to get dropped off at school at 5:30 AM because my mother had to go to work at that time. Obviously the sun wasn't up yet at that time so occasionally I would get up and get ready for school out of habit because I didn't have a clock in my room only to later find out it was actually 3:00 AM or something.

There's a time I've gone to school way too early due to a clock showing the wrong time. Also waking up, getting scared that I'm late only to realize it's a day off. Never accidentally gone anywhere though.

Supposedly, once. I was (/am) convinced they changed the schedule after the last time I was there to look at it and didn't call me, but the boss insisted the schedule had me listed as off that day from the beginning.

....Wait one second, your mother dropped you off at school in the first grade at 5:30 am. What did she just expect you wander around the playground for 2 hours or something by yourself? That seems....well like some sort of child abuse and couldn't have been legal.

I went to my college on Columbus Day.

Because Columbus Day wasn't a day off back in K-12 but it is for college/university. Its such a dumb and confusing day because everytime I'm always like "wait am I supposed to go or not?"

Luckily I'm always not working on Mondays so I have that going for me.

I don't recall doing so, but I may have, it wouldn't be surprising. I can be a bit "absent-minded" at times.

Sadly, some of us, myself included, are immune to this incredible elixir. Still has a good flavor, but it causes no affects.

You haven't tried Spanish Coffee or Turkish style is all...To this day I am half convinced they add amphetamine to it.

It was a big school so they had child care starting at 6:00 AM (school started at 8:00 though) and my dad wasn't home often, she had to work so what else can you do really. Also, my brother was there with me so I wasn't alone or anything. (Note: five year older brother, so sixth grade at the time.)

Yes.

At university, I've had teachers cancel a course on a given day. But since these tended to be last moment cancellations, they only sent notification e-mails (on the university provided e-mail account) a few hours before the start of the course. Given that the university e-mail service was a buggy piece of crap and that most of the e-mail received were university related spam, I didn't check it often.

So, a few times, I ended up wasting about 2 hours (round-trip) and about 15$ to 20$ in gas and parking.
