shoot. last night i went out to dinner with jesse, but that soon led to a club, and now its 8 and i was supposed to be at work at 7. i ran out of the house - makeupless, hair unbrushed, wearing my pajamas and uggs. luckily, i was able to grab my blackberry on the way out and texted one of the interns asking what was going on at the office. i rushed over and ran inside, but stopped nervously. Lauren, Christian, and George all stood there awaiting my arrival - but they didn't look happy. at all.
Me: uh -
Lauren grabbed my phone. and just as she did, jesse texted me. great timing, bud.
Lauren: just as i thought! you canNOT be serious! like i told you yesterday - this is NOT about you! this is about the company! do you WANT, to get fired?!
Me: i -
George: no "i"'s, Barney. because of you and your foolishness, you didn't talk to Rihanna's agent yesterday. but somehow you managed to talk to Jesse.
Lauren: do you know what that means?! that means that Rihanna won't be recording today, and we had to reschedule. and she's pissed, and we had to cancel tonight's event. all because one little intern couldn't get her priorities straight.
silent tears began streaming down my face like waterfalls. i couldn't even speak if i tried. how could i let this happen? why are they being so hard on me? maybe its there fault - they shouldn't give this job to a "little intern"!!!!
Christian: wait, wait, wait. maybe we shouldn't be so hard on her! she's actually getting a lot of publicity because of this thing, which is actually good for the company. you have to admit, our sales have increased since this relationship has sprung, and its helping more than hurting.
Lauren: but boss -
Christian: DON'T interrupt me Lauren! i like this. i like this a lot. now you MUST work a lot harder in the office, and keep that phone off. but i think its actually good that you're dating this guy. spread the love, Barry. (:
OMG! he knows my name!!!!!!! and for once, SOMEONE took my side here! i wiped away my tears and smiled at Christian and headed to my office. but i was still in a little shock by the crazy outbursts by Lauren and George. it scared me!!!! and just before i turned my phone off, i got another text from Jesse.
Jesse: ay babe. im bored. send me more pix?
Me: jess i'm not supposed to be texting now, i'm at work!
Jesse: please - just one. just close the door and say your busy - please (;
Me: fine (;
