The Boss Is Coming

She is no Simon Le’gree, but she should be. It would be easier. She is way too lenient, if you ask me. But yesterday she was too strict. Click. Click. Click. Conversation ceases. Act normal. Sure. Yeah. Uh-huh. Yes, that sounds fine. Sure, I can do that. Click. Click. Click. What did she want you to do? Are you going to do it? Never mind. It’s a bad idea, I do not have to take orders from her. She is not really our boss anyway. She just thinks she … Click. Click Click. Okay, Mrs. B, sounds good. Sure, no problem. Click. Click. Click. Are you going to do it now? Maybe.

I had a boss who wore those once... and I hated it when they carpeted the hallway! ;P (Not that it changed my behavior any... hahahaa)

We used to have a principal who wore clicky-clacky-shoes. We knew she was arriving several minutes before she did.
