Working Woman

So, I have this new job. Personal Assistant. Only, I didn't check the details too closely before I started, and it turns out that was a mistake.

My boss has appointments every day of the week and expects me to drive him to them. He also insists that I prepare his meals and snacks. He has no sense of personal boundaries -- I'm working nights, weekends, all day, every day, whatever. Dude, he basically expects me to WIPE HIS ASS after he poops.

There aren't many perks to the job, but the few that do exist? Are HUGE. Like, this guy will drop everything to tell me loves me and give me a hug. Yes, I realize that in some workplaces, that might be grounds for sexual harassment, but we're making it work.

Ha ha. Anyway, sorry for the silence. It's just been crazy busy for a while, and then it was Shavuot, and then today I had some free time, so I got a manicure, pedicure, and eyebrow wax. And believe me, I desperately needed all of them.

So. I'm spending all my time driving D. to his appointments and stuff, but it's all good, and I hope to be back to a more regular posting schedule next week.

You had me going there for a second. I was like what kind of person expects you to do all that, get real! Just goes to show I need two cups of coffee, not one, before I read anything. Glad you're back!

Thanks for posting, I was really starting to worry. And yeah, like Lisa said - you had me going there for a second.

Miss your fabulous writing.

Well, sh*t, I totally bought it until I read the comments. And I had a great comment about how "it sounds like parenting an affectionate teenager". Which I guess is awful close to the truth that totally went over my head. Although, if I was inspired to make that comment, I guess it didn't entirely go over my head . . .
