Free Lunch Fail!

Leave a comment

Yeah, so, we’ve been working on this big project at work.

We’ve been working on it nonstop for months, and today, we finished “our deliverables” (allow me to translate the cubicle speak: that’s a massive Excel spreadsheet, Photoshop files and JPEG images) to hand off to IT, so the boss comes by my cube, and we had the following exchange.

Boss: “Good job, Sonia.” [high five]
Me: “Woo-hoo!”
Boss: “I guess I owe everyone lunch or something.”
Me: “Oh, you don’t need to do that. We’re just doing our jobs.”
Boss: “That’s true.”
Me: “Dang, I just talked myself out of free lunch.” [slaps hand to forehead] “D’oh”

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
