don't write about work on the Internet

This morning I came to work to find that our receptionist called out. I am currently the poor soul that has to do the “covering”. It’s all good though because I do not have access to my regular software from this post and the phone doesn’t ring because we have operators all over the country. So…this conversation ensued via e-mail with my favorite work bud. Why’s he the favorite? We’ve been in it together for 2 years now..same department same bosses…same situations…2 years. He just won huge points here….as he refuses to work on Sat’s often etc.



Chadley:


She probably isn't coming in and T**** will probably be "sick" and not come in either. She tried me on Saturday and I wasn't having it yo!!!!! I told her to come in b/c I know you are not truly sick!! Can't pull the wool over my eyes!!!!!


Me:


Thank god you are not my boss.......I would kick you in the nads and quit. ha!


Chadley:


Chef, you would only be lucky enough to have me as a boss! I am probably the best boss out there. I am fair and I am all about the employee!! As for calling in sick with me, not a problem as long as you are sick and I am not having to work until 2pm on a Saturday.



Me:


what if I'm sick and you DO have to work until 2 p.m. on a Saturday because of it?


Chadley:


For you I would work until 2pm.


Me:


Bwah ha ha

Wait…what do you want?


Chadley:

Nothing CHEF!! I am really trying not to be so angry inside and I am trying to be happy again!!! It may be short lived but I am going to try!!



And yes I have a nickname at work……Chef….Chefferson…..and yah Chadley gave it to me…..and I’m the only one that calls him Chadley….but the entire office and other offices call me Chef. They have no idea why they do it…talk about swaying the masses…
