Off The Sappy Scale

Romantic | July 23, 2013

(My partner comes into work to bring me lunch most days, and as such is well known to my coworkers and boss. He has come in again today, but my boss has stopped by the lunch room to chat. The subject turns to what the boss will and will not do to get a girlfriend.)

Boss: “Look, on a scale going up to 10, how much do you love this girl?”

Boyfriend: “Oh… 14 and a half?”

(My boss throws his hands up and walks off. My boyfriend turns to me and smiles.)

Boyfriend: “It’s actually 16, but I didn’t want to seem sappy in front of your boss.”
