Today I was on the phone with my Mom bitchin’ about how my boss wasn’t working with my schedule and how I really hated my job. Meanwhile, call waiting beeps in. I look at the caller ID, it’s my boss.
"Speaking of the bitch, she’s calling now. Let me call you back…"
The other line is silent. I look at my phone. THE CALL HAD SWITCHED OVER! How much had she heard!? OMG! DO I HANG UP!? WHAT DO I DO!?
"So I’m a bitch?"
"OMG NO! I WAS NOT TALKING ABOUT YOU! PROMISE! I WAS TALKING ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE! My Mom was calling at the same time."
"Okay, that just kind of caught me off guard…" She rambles on about some information that I really should have been listening to but I was too shocked.
I stop her, “I’m sorry, I’m so distressed about what just happened that I’m not comprehending what you’re saying. I am really sorry, I was talking with Josh and I thought my Mom was calling. I am so sorry. I promise I was not talking about you”.
”It’s okay, I just was caught off guard”.
Turns out, she was calling me to tell me that she had literally talked to EVERY employee to try to get them to work with my school schedule and no one wanted to switch. She wasn’t the one that wasn’t being flexible.
Sad thing is, my boss really isn’t a bitch. She’s actually pretty awesome and has always worked with me as much as possible. I was just venting about work and how I was pissed I had to move to a different schedule and I had just mentioned how she told me I wasn’t going to have off but one day this week.
I’m pretty sure she knew I was lying. She’s not stupid. I really don’t know how the worlds aligned perfectly at that moment that allowed such a horrible thing to happen, but it did, and I probably fucked up any chances of moving up with the company because of it.
My phone pulled the ultimate troll on me, and now everything is seriously going to hell in my life…
Just tell me it’s going to get better, please….
