You know type of morning, when the sun never really comes up and neither do you? Like it doesn’t matter if you went to bed early and got a little extra sleep, functioning is just not high on the priority list…Yeah, today is one of those mornings.
So when this happened while I was getting coffee….
Kinda sorta Boss #5: “Well goooood morning to you too.”
Kinda sorta Boss #5: “Have a rough night last night? Never really wake up this morning? I see you put a lot of effort into your look today.”
Me: “Thank you for saying that I look rough today and pointing out that I’m not wearing any make-up.”
Kinda sorta Boss #5: “No, no, I, uh, uh….I was talking about your hair.”
Me: “No, you just gestured my whole face…and just to let you know I let my hair air dry every day, and today is no different.
Nope. I’m not having it at all today. Consider yourselves warned.
As some of you know, Boss #2 will leaving our company soon. So they currently have someone training to replace him, we’ll call him Boss #4 (In-training). In the last few weeks, Boss #4 (In-training) he has been sitting in for all of upper management as they take their vacation days. This week he is filling in for Boss #3 (who is my direct boss) and he is sitting at his desk. Now as mentioned in previous posts, I enjoy, literally tossing my paperwork into a basket on my boss’s desk. I don’t think Boss #4 (In-training) is quite sure what to make of me yet…
Me: *Tosses paperwork into basket*
Boss #4 (In-training): “While I am sitting at this desk, you will gently place the paperwork in the basket.
And then pleasantly greet me.”
Boss #2: “Dude, you might as well give up while you’re ahead…because chances are, now she is just going to throw it at you.”
Me: “Ahhh you know me so well! But seriously, you should probably listen to him.”
Boss #4 (In-training): “I’m sure she’s a joy to work with every day.”
Boss #2: “You have no idea…”
Hey Boss #4 (In-training), good luck. You have no idea what you are in for.
Boss #2 told me today that he will be putting in his 2 weeks notice soon. I am sad that he is leaving, but very happy for him for having this opportunity. When I mentioned to him that I need to get my job searching act together, this happened…
Boss #2: “Yeah totally, if you ever need a letter of recommendation just let me know.”
Me: “Sweet, thanks! It should say “Chelsea is the best employee, ever.””
Boss #2: “…and that she is very sassy, and will always keep you on your toes. Sometimes, she even does her work.”
Me: “Great, with a recommendation like that, I’ll never find another job…”
Best of luck at the new job, Boss #2! Now it is definitely time for me to make my workplace escape…
No joke, I’ve been shot with rubber bands multiple times today by one of my co-workers.
And every time I’ve tried to retaliate, I would epically miss hitting him. It has been rather embarrassing…
So I finally got fed up, and decided to steal all of his ammo. I’m currently holding several rubber bands hostage at my desk…
I remembered to put perfume on when I got to my cubicle this morning.
Right afterwards Boss #2 comes over to my cubicle to tell me something , *sniff sniff* “you don’t smell awful today”.
Boss #2: “Ekkk, I’m kidding. I’m kidding.”
It is so fun to scare full-grown men with just a look.
While looking around my cubicle today, my boss told me that I “have too many post-it notes” up on my desk…
“No I dont! One can never have too many post-it notes!”
Right? Right? I can’t be the only one that thinks that…
It would appear that I am well on my way to becoming the office version of a crazy cat lady.
Day #3 and I still have not seen or heard from IT services.
As a general rule, I do my best to be polite and understanding with those in the service industry. Several phone calls and emails later…I’m still trying
It’s not like I need to do my job or anything.
So much backed up paperwork. I’m screwed.
