So I'm seriously considering looking for a new job. That's not really a secret.
HERRRRE's the secret:
Sometimes I say things to my boss that I know will horrify her, just because I like the reaction.
Isn't that terrible?
Today I told her I was turning my wedding dress into a cocktail dress (which is probably going to happen) but I brought it up because every time I say it, she gasps and puts her hand over her heart.
She recently told me that when I had kids, I would never go on vacation again because I wouldn't be able to tear myself away from them. I told her that I wasn't sure that was true. She said "It is, just wait, you won't be able to leave your child. Plus you're so type A, you'll need everything in your control." I told her that people who can't leave their kids to have a healthy "adult" vacation with their girlfriends/spouse/partner/alone have "something wrong with them." Which I think is semi-true (but that's not the point). Again, GASP! Hand on heart! Horror, oh the horror!!
It's moments like this that I almost want to stay so I can run circles around this woman....but then again, when she does things like breeze into my office only to sit down and whip out a nail file to file her creepy long nails, I have second thoughts....
