My boss gave me a quick call a little while ago because I sent out an email to the local staff. I went to rinse out my coffee pot and clean my coffee cup but couldn’t because our office shared sink was full of dirty dishes. Dirty dishes that had been sitting around for two days. He was apparently a bit peeved cuz my email said something like …
“We don’t have a maid and your mother doesn’t work here; so clean out your dirty dishes out of the sink now or just know that the person who threw them into the trash bin was me. Others need to use the sink too.”
It’s amazing how fast it was emptied.
He said I was too callous. I told him I was disappointed that I actually didn’t get to throw anything away.
He said I needed to be more understanding. I said that there was absolutely no misunderstanding. People were being pigs and they were called out for it. Then I asked why he was defending pigs.
He said he was considering a reprimand. I said that I’d be sure to include my Congressman in my reply back to him and that I was sure that my Congressman would be more than thrilled by an action of this sort by him considering that VA management has this great reputation with the US Congress lately. Then I asked him if he wanted to be known by the Congress for defending pigs.
I haven’t heard a response back. I wonder if I was a little over the top? I told you I was a bit irritable today.
No Miss C. “Irritable” not “grumpy“.
