Boss\’s Baby Gift
I had left for maternity leave at an advertising a few weeks after the first bail outs where happening for 12 weeks. I wasn\’t paying much attention to the bail outs at first because I was almost three weeks over due and wanted my baby out of me. The day I had my baby I received Flowers, a Teddy Bear, and one of my favorite snacks form my boss with a note that said Congrats,on the new baby by the way we are having to do cut backs. It just so happens that one of my clients asked for a bail out. I was hoping that I would be able to depend on some other clients I had that way I could stay at work. My husband is going back to school and only works part-time, so we really depend on my income. Since I hadn\’t been laid off yet and it was almost 12 weeks later I assumed I still had a job. Then I was going to work, I had my coffee, I had dropped my daughter off at daycare, and was three blocks away when my boss called and said “Hey! How’s the baby doing? I bet she\’s a cutie just like her mother. Now listen if you need more time off that just fine.” “No I don\’t I’m excited to get back to work I\’m almost there and fired up.” “Oh, I bet you are. Did you get the gifts?” “Yeah, I loved the Ho Ho\’s.” “Yeah well I always see you eating one with you lunch… so um, here\’s the thing you don\’t need to come back to work because your fired. Tina, will call you about you things. I\’ll be sure to send another box of Ho Ho\’s to your house. Thanks a lot. Enjoy the Ho Ho\’s.” Click.
