Today, after 6 months of unemployment and jobs searching, I showed up to my new job 10 minutes early. My new supervisor confusedly greeted me and informed me I was in fact a week and 10 minutes early. HR changed my start date and told everyone but me. FML

Better a week early than a week late! And possibly then being fired.... :-)

I hope you have enough money to sustain for a week and 10 mins ! Good luck for the job! And congratulations!

Now OP - and everybody else on here - knows to call once a week to re-confirm your starting day. Thx! :-)

Plot twist, OP's new job is in HR.

Better that than a week late!!

Fitting username.

Yeah, even I knew that! I don't know why HR sent out a worldwide spam about your start date, but I'm glad to know it's legit.

So, you made a trip you didn't have to? Your life is *truly* fucked.

At least it shows that you're keen to start.

Nickname is on point yet I think it'd be cool to add "too" so it can be "TooEarlybird"..
