Makes You Want To Call In Thick

| Working | February 2, 2013

(I’m scheduled for the matinee shift; however, I’ve overslept and am going to be a half-hour late. I call in to let them know I’m running late. Note that I’ve been working at this theater for a year at this time and know every person on the staff.)

Coworker: “Good morning, this is [name]. How may I help you?”

Me: “Hi, this is . Could you do me a favor and tell the manager on concessions I’m going to be a half hour late?”

Coworker: “Um, okay. A half hour, you said?”

Me: “Yes, I just overslept, but I’ll be there in a half hour.”

Coworker: “Okay. And you work here?”

Me: “…Yes. Yes, I work here.”
