Go To Work And Throw A Fit

, , | Working | December 3, 2014

(I work as a materials handler and general bean counter in a facility that produces drill bits. As a result of a vehicle collision a month prior, I’m on a mix of medications that congress with a slight risk of seizures and, as a result, have been put on a leave of absence by my boss until I get a release to work from my doctor. The following is me venting my frustration at the situation to my husband the next morning:)

Me: “I can’t believe they wouldn’t just assign me to a job that wouldn’t…”

(I pause to consider the different positions that my boss could move me to temporarily.)

Husband: “That wouldn’t what?”

Me: “Wouldn’t kill me if I had a seizure. But now that I think about it, that’s just about every job there.”
