I’m sorry I’ve been missing some of the daily posts. I was sick last week and now I’m just dragging! I’ll make it up to you by admitting something that will solidify your belief that yes, “this woman is nuts!”
I was in the break room at work, dumping the water out of my steam clean bag (for my pump parts). I briefly looked up and noticed the clock on the microwave was counting down but the microwave itself was not “on”. Freaky, right?
I let it get down to 35 seconds before I go FULL ON crazy. I decide that it’s definitely a bomb and I have to get the hell out of there. I book it towards my managers office. In the process, I bump into my co-worker who is heading into the break room. Now, a good human being might say, “Hey, I think there is a bomb in there”. I was not capable of coherent thoughts, which is obvious by my choice of safety location.
I get to my managers office and wait a few seconds. Weird, we should have all been blown to smithereens by now. I wait a few more seconds and head back to the break room. The microwave was back to its regular settings.
I did confess to my co-worker and her first question was “…and you were going to let me die?”
I’m going to have to rethink my approach in the event that I’m ever in a situation like that (lets hope that never happens). Because I don’t want to be known as the girl who barely saved herself and definitely didn’t save any of her co-workers or friends.
