Tool Selection

Could be someone I know, someone I don't know, fictional characters, dead people. I don't care, I'm an equal opportunity complainer when it comes to complete dickwads.

Wherever there's a Complete Tool, I'll follow closely behind with my anonymous bitching. 'Cuz that'll show 'em.

Your Pants Are On Fire!



The one thing I hate worse than finding out that my anger at MisManager has been misplaced, is finding out I've been lied to.

It wasn't even a good lie.  Or even a necessary lie.  EmployeeVonMunchausen did not show up for work today.  It's a good thing I decided to.  After only 1-1/2 hours of sleep and a feverish preschooler, while I'm still battling a stomach bug myself, I almost called in.  But I didn't because I'm Wonder Woman's 2nd cousin twice removed or something.

At 5 minutes late, I call MisManager thinking EVM just called into her.  Hmmmmm.  Her phone goes straight to voicemail.  That's peculiar.  I thought she had the thing hard-wired to her brain.  At 10 minutes late, I called Employee.  "So...you're not coming in today?"  "No, I already told MisManager."

Oh!  MisManager, you're in my doghouse again!  I even told her that.  She started apologizing that she had just turned her phone on for the day and she was sorry that she missed my call then asked....

What's going on again?

Uh, the employee who called in sick...would've been nice to know.

Gosh!  I can't believe she called in again!  This is completely ridiculous.

Mmmmm....she didn't call you did she?

No.

An hour after the conversation in which she explained to me that she'd already spoken with MisManager, she TEXTED her.  Well, that's just stupid.  Texts record time.  EmployeeVonMunchausen recorded a text-in time of 9:19.  Her scheduled in time: 8:15.  The time of our conversation 8:25.

I've always sucked at math, but I could swear that 8 came before 9.  Unless she's somehow discovered the secret to time travel and I'm just in the reality that existed first -- the one in which she hadn't yet gone back in time to speak with MisManager -- she's totally busted.

OMG! 8 comes before 9??? When did that happen? Great, now I have to go and change all my clocks. Or something.

I think that the 8 < 9 thing came about as a part of the U.S. Patriot Act. Sorry to ruin your day, Nanny. :)
