So much for getting work done today…

by statia on May 3, 2004

I love shoes…….. but I don’t like wondering when the other one is going to drop. As I’ve said before, my luck tends to run on the shitty side. Well, I would call my unbelievable luck this weekend anything but shitty, that’s for damn sure.

But my luck ended up getting better this morning. My weekly Monday morning meeting, which I hate with the burning firey passion, brought forth some excellent news today. Last October, we kicked off a contest, that lasted until the end of February. We found out today who the winners were. I came in first, and was awarded a hefty prepaid debit card with 2 grand on it. Free and clear. Two thousand dollars. Shit like this never happens to me. For awhile, I was trailing third, and really, anything can happen on a whim to change those numbers. You generally don’t have that much control over them, but when they did the biggest flip in my favor, well, I’m sure my boss was taken aback when I said “get the fuck out.”

I’m so classy.

That’s awesome. Not too many opportunities to talk to your boss like that and get away with it.
