So as you can establish I have been quite busy at work.
I've been getting in for around 0900ish and departing mostly between 1900 and 2000. When you combine this with no lunch break and constantly being on the go it lends to an incredibly exhausted Miss M who really does not feel like dealing with the general populous.
My boss has been in the office until 2230 most nights for the past week and I must admit that I have been feeling a bit guilty leaving earlier than her but you know what - I'm not paid as much as she is.
Last night, however, I really needed to get out on time to go meet Miss P who is in town for a bit. Our mutual friend was cooking a meal for us at home and Jailbait was coming to meet Miss P for the first time.
I told my boss I needed to leave on the dot and she agreed.
At 1820 Jailbait got to my office and I went over to her to say goodbye
Miss M: Right Wallie, before I head out is there anything urgent that you need?
Wallie: Well there is this one thing, can you adjust all the changes in our studio schedule from the meeting and make sure that our final schedule is correct?
Miss M: Exceptionally annoyed Is this urgent for this evening?
Wallie: Not really, but I'd like it done so I know it is out of the way
Miss M: Breathes out Right now?
Wallie: Yes please Miss M
Now I swear she was only getting me to do it because she was pissed that I was leaving ON TIME. I wasn't even leaving early, actually screw that I was already leaving 20 minutes late - not even on time.
How petty is that?
Getting me to do something that she doesn't need urgently - in fact she doesn't really need it for another week - purely just to have me stay in the office later to ruin my evening because hers obviously is ruined already.
I was an hour and 20 minutes late for dinner.
