    I really wanted to go to a sport taster session at uni as i have no friends/think id enjoy it and all that. I set out today nice and early as it was an hour and half away, got stuck in traffic and then when i got there couldnt find it. My sat nav didnt recongise the street so i got lost on some estate. I just thought i cant turn ip half an hour late so went back home. I feel so annoyed and incompetant. Have you ever done this? I did email the student in charge the day before but she only sent an email an hour before the event saying they were meeting at the uni by then i was on my way there in the car. Have you ever done this?

    no...but I've certainly been late to things- like REALLY late. Is it not possible to go to another/ or go to the next one?

    No, the trials/picking the team is next week. I dont even know the rules to the sport fully lol. Maybe i should have just been really late then instead of comming all the way back home

    Wasnt there a number for you to phone someone? I would have got there late you did spend an hour and a half driving there i would not have gone back home. Next time just park somewhere and ask someone to give you directions.

    I tend to plan things. I would have one anyway. Join as a reserve. You cna do soem research on the rules. As with most societys the challenge is to keep going even though it can be awkward at first.
