Where were you when the year 2000 began?

I was in the ER. My SO's best friend had tripped over his amp cord (he was playing his guitar) and fallen into a window. He was severely cut and had been drinking so bled pretty bad. I rushed him to the hospital to get stitched in. We brought in the new millenium together at the hospital. The dr. said he'd never forget where he was that year...

  • I was at home waiting to have a baby girl. I was wishing that I was in the hospital giving birth. Finally had her on the 12th of Jan., 2000. She was worth the wait!

  • I was working, at WalMart there was this employee who was working with me that was convinced the whole store was going to shut down at midnight and that we would have no light and power for days. He bought a rifle and built a shelter in his backyard that he stocked with canned goods and a camp stove and lanterns and what not. He left that night at 11:55 to "get ready" for the new millenium.

    So then nothing happened and he was the butt of many many jokes after that.

  • I was fast asleep in my bed. We had just spent 8 hours driving from Chicago back home. We got there around 11:30pm and crashed because we both had to be up for work in the morning. We were in Chicago for my gramma's funeral which was on the 30th (she died Christmas day 1999).

    All that was on the radio the whole ride home was talk about Y2K. When I woke up the first thing I said was, "I guess the world didn't end because I still have to get up and go to work."
