    I'm not supposed to answer this queston of yours, but I'd love to.
    Yet, I was supposed to go to work yesterday, and I had no choice but to.

    Well, I guess the only difference is that one is in the present and the other is in the past.
    e.g.
    I am supposed to go to school every day.
    I was supposed to go to school yesterday.
