Does Google Calendar Really Drop Your Pop-Up and Email Reminders?

I rely heavily on Google Calendar to notify me of events, and it has never failed until today!  Normally, I get a pop-up, an email, and my Android phone reminds me as well.

But yesterday, I had an important interview, so to make it stand out from all my other daily tasks, I moved it to a different calendar (after first creating it), in order to make it show-up red (i.e. more important).

It turns out, that when you change the calendar (i.e. move an event to a different calendar), the event notifications (reminders) totally vanish!  Similar users experience same issue in this Google thread.

Due to this, I actually missed a phone interview for a new consulting gig.

So a big lessons was learned today.
