conversations at work
(in the midst of me talking to my boss about taking over for the night)
me: well i don’t have any drivers because rich is missing, so i will be taking the deliveries and i’m going to make lynn to stay here since there’s only one table and she was ohkay with it when i asked.
bosspat: … you don’t have any drivers? you are making lynn stay?
me: well i am a tyrant and this is my kingdom.
bosspat: i love it, do whatever you want.
(later, on the phone with my other boss)
bosslinda: well this is a demerit for rich
me: no, i’m worried. he just gets a warning, i like him and i want him to stay since he’s a good person and doesn’t leave me alone here at night if i’m stuck counting money and cleaning even when i tell him i’m good. him and pineda get slack.
bosslinda: ohkay, you’re right he’s done it for me too. by the way, can you help me with [my boyfriend’s] anniversary gift?
me: yuh, shopping soon?
(later later on the boss with pat again)
me: where’s my tips, i want to go drinking at oktoberfest tonight and that’s my entrance.
pat: haven’t done them yet.
me: i’m sending pineda to get them.
pat: i’ll do them now.
i am a tyrant and it’s actually just over my bosses, whom i love and think of as good brothers who’ve done some really kind things for me. but seriously?
