And… We’re back.. At panic mode, Mach 8, 911, the next level… Whatever you wanna call it, but, like Linda Blair I’m waiting for Mrs G’s head to spin around and the walls of the office to be covered in pea soup.
Mrs G is preparing for the biggest sale day of the year. Literally. New Year’s Day is our biggest single sale day ever and in shoes it’s the biggest period. And it keeps growing. Which means Mrs G’s anxiety continues to grow!!! Minute by minute by minute. As someone very wise suggested to me that She needs everything laced with Xanax… Water, tea, coffee. 😂😂😹. (I’m working on this for this week).
Today was the most PhEmmy riddled day so far.. And Mrs G was off work!! 😂😂😹👏👍. But, of course she came in to work… And evidently her Penelope tracker app was on full force… Because I wasn’t on my floor but 3 minutes and she finds me!! I swear the woman is a vampire!! She appeared out of NOWHERE…. And was SOUNDLESS. Scared the shit out of me. I’m at Origins, tucked in a corner of the store and NO ONE knew I was there.. Yet… Here comes Mrs G… She Walks up right beside me… Looks me in the eye and says.. (No, not hello! How are you?):
“I can’t take this floor anymore. This is too big. It’s too much. I can’t do this all alone. I wish they would fire me. Just fire me. Get it over with. You know the only reason I work here is for the health insurance Penelope… I’m doing this ALL ALONE!!! I CAN’T! This is TOO MUCH!!”
I let her go off… (Arm flapping likes she’s an honorary Italian) and not even taking a breath.. She continues.. “Seriously Penelope!!! I’m doing this all alone!! Ridiculous!!”
I let her stop… And said to her.. “But Mrs G… You just hired 12 temporary workers… It’s like you have a baseball team working for you!! You’ve got this!!”
Stunned, she stared at me.. “Yeah, 12 temporary workers who don’t give a shit! I’d do it better myself. I’d rather have 12 of ME!!!”
ACKKKKKK!! 12 Mrs G’s???!!!!!! NO WAY! My own personal HELL!!! 😂😂😹 YIKES!!!
Mortified, I stared at her and said “I could NEVER Deal with 12 of you. God help the world!!!” And I Mrs George’d her!!!! I Walked away!! Now, there was no door to slam, but I walked away… Thinking oh LORD NO!!
I’ll probably have nightmares tonight!!
