The Biggest Headache Is Your Boss

, , , , , , | Working | February 1, 2018

(I wake up one morning with a major migraine. I am incapacitated, vomiting, the whole nine yards. I decide to go to the emergency room to get out of it. I call my work.)

Me: “Hey, I’m going to be late; I’m heading to the emergency room.”

(Ten minutes later I get a call from my boss who is on vacation.)

Boss: “You need to suck it up and get to work.”

Me: “And talk to customers as I’m dry heaving? No. I’m heading to emergency room.”

Boss: “They aren’t going to do anything but give you stuff that you can get at the store like Pepto Bismol.”

Me: “Um, excuse me, but how am I supposed to do take that when I can’t keep anything down?”

Boss: “Well, figure something else out, then.”

Me: “I am heading to the emergency room so they can give me medicine via an IV.”

(My boss was left completely silent and just told me to hurry it up and get to work. Needless to say, I’ll be transferring very soon.)
