So I ended up having to stay at work until almost 5 today. So much for my big “I’ll get to pick you up earlier from now on!” promise when I dropped off my children this morning.
One of my staff members who works in the cubicle next to mine saw me hurrying back to my desk after a meeting ran over. It was approximately 4:47 p.m. “So, how do you like your new 8 to 4 schedule?” he asked. “Love it,” I replied. Smart ass.
He promised he would start throwing things over the cube wall at 4:05 p.m. each day if I was still there. I may have promised him a raise in return, but I’m too tired to remember.
