After my co-worker was laid off on Monday I joked with my carpool driver that if I was going to be laid off the boss would have to warn her so that she could tell me to drive in on my own. Haha.
This morning she called and said she needed to drive her own car to work today. Since I needed my car for my Dr. appointment I drove myself. I didn't think anything of it until a few minutes after I hung up the phone and recalled our earlier joke. Uh oh! But no, the boss was not waiting for me with a box to clean out my desk. Whew.
The reason she drove herself was because she was running late. Her elderly dog was ill and she decided it was time to put him down. He had been ill for 2 years and hadn't eaten anything in days. I was supposed to dog sit for her while she went on vacation next week but that's irrelevant now. I'll still stay over there a few nights and keep her cat company...and watch a little cable tv...and fill up my water jugs..and use her indoor washer and dryer. It doesn't take much to make me happy.
