- Wedding: June 2012
Today, I’m a week away from my wedding. And I was suppose to have a 3 day weekend coming up. I was going to come home from Fiance after work, and go to baseball. It was a nice warm sunny afternoon. I was excited. I had a lunch date with an old friend, where I could get adult milkshakes..
I walked into work, and stubbed my toe. Yup. Started my day off with a BANG. I did all my work I usually do, and just KNEW I’d be busy. The day I come back from our Honeymoon kicks off our New Student Orientation. And my boss is off that day. I don’t want to go off to work that day, but you know what. I’ll suck it up. I’m on the verge of becoming full time. I’ll take it.
All this week we’ve been making new student folders, we had to have 4,500 by tonight. We had like 2,500 left to do, two people were off work today. And my boss had 2 friends working the front desk, so they weren’t going to separate to come upstairs to stuff. They hadn’t all week. Why would they today? I finished my work at like 9:30. Went upstairs, hooked up my iPhone for some music and started going at it. I cranked out about 100 in 20 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised.
My boss walked up and said she had a HUGE favor to ask, I rolled my eyes slightly and said what? I know it was immature, but I was fed up being the ONLY person working. And she said when A came into work, I needed to go to the other office, they had a surprise group coming in. (Which should have sent off a red flag, but I didn’t put it past the school of Nursing to do that) I was like well A is off today, and was like well sh*t who comes in? And I said K. So she said when K comes in, by 10:30 you need to be on your way down there, and I was like whatever. And she said, C (at the other office) had a meeting with her at 1 or so. (Should have been another red flag, C tells me EVERYTHING, and hadn’t mentioned anything, AND we have a meeting Tuesday) and I said what about M’s lunch (other person at the other office) and she said, well I told M if the group didn’t show, we know how school of nursing is, to take his lunch from 11:30 to 12:30. (Another red flag I didn’t really catch but started wondering WTF is up) I was PO’d because I walked to wait for the bus, and sat in a pile of ants.
My lunch date then cancelled. I was even more mad…
At 12:30 they sent someone to pick us up (not unusual). My boss told him to take his time coming up, and he told my boss so I can yell at him (I’ve been a brat lately with this weeding happening in a week and all). I text my boss letting her know we’re on the way, she said i needed to check in with her when I got there, not really to unusual but now I’m wondering, wtf is going on?
We get to the office, I see my boss, and she said P (our overhead boss) said we needed to count all the folders. I about lost my sh*t in the middle of the office. I was like WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE? HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR DAMN MIND?
So we go upstairs and open the stuffing room.
And there stands almost all my coworks, (2 had to be at the counter working) bosses, and a few other department works. A huge pile of presents. Okay not HUGE but still. And a table full of food.
They got a sheet cake made, it looked like a baseball field (for those who don’t know, baseball wedding, at a baseball field, reception is a game). And had a bride and groom behind home plate. I about cried. I appologized for being a brat today. And my boss said she understood.
The day ended with us packing more folders. And my boss telling me I needed to work monday, which is fine, I wasnt doing anything anyway, maybe we can do our own little party. But then her telling me, i get 2x pay.
Anyway, heres my little piece of cake I got. (sorry if it’s big)
