Sometimes, I feel like life is one big test

So, school has started. It's going to be one of "those" years. I am thankful to have a job, but as with everyone else, I'm doing more for less. That means less time on SP, less time on leisure, etc etc etc
When I get stressed, I get active, so I spent some time writing encouraging notes this week to build others up - you know. It's that idea where you give away what you need the most?
Anyway, I'm dressed for work this morning, I have 10 minutes before I need to leave the house. I choose to take the dog for a quick walk down the cul de sac- healthy choice, right?
I see a neighbor using his garden hose to clear off his driveway and the curb in front of his house. I walk down the cul de sac no problem. Am coming back towards my house, on his side of the street. He's squatting down doing something, he doesn't say anything to me, so I just kinda leave him alone. I let my dog jump up onto the grass of HIS neighbors house and he fires the garden hose nozzle at me and the dog. I spin around and he says quickly "Don't let your dog pee on my grass"
A - I'm in your neighbor's yard.
B - He's peed out. He peed in my backyard, and about 10 other yards before coming to yours.
C - I'm dressed for work, you idiot, suit jacket and everything, and now because I'm wet, I have to go home and change - which makes me almost late for work.
The day has gotten better, but wow. Feels like I pass one test only to be confronted with another some days.......
