Me: See you after Eid.
Boss: Actually we need to work on Tuesday, so you guys only get Sunday and Monday off.
Me: But Eid break is usually three days.
Boss: Hmm, still need you to work on Tuesday we have to move premises, so 9 am new premises.
I interrupt my glorious stay in Alex, drive all the way back to Cairo, make my way to the new premises in Maadi only to receive a 8:30 am call from my subordinate telling me that he’s at the door and there are no signs of life. I tell him to call the boss.
Five minutes later my phone goes off.
Boss: Maykel’s at Maadi.
Me: Yes, as per your instructions. I’m on my way too.
Boss: The workers are not done yet.
Me: (feeling the gal bladder explosion coming on) So what does that mean?
Boss: I wish you had called me yesterday to confirm. I learned on SATURDAY that they are still a long way off. So take Maykel now and work from your house this week, we are hoping to move on Sunday.
Me: (taking in a really deep breath) So now we are to work from home today?
Me: (Hangs up).
COULD YOU BELIEVE THE NERVE OF SOME PEOPLE!!!
My poor poor gal bladder!!!!
