My first job after graduate school. Me and my boss are polar opposites in every possible way.
She: a tall quiet blonde with short straight hair
Me: a short loud brunette with long wavy hair
She: from Minnesota
Me: from New York
She: liked to stay home and listen to NPR
Me: liked hit the clubs and hear live music
You get my meaning.
So anyway, one day, we are driving to a client meeting. She is very excited to tell me about her upcoming vacation. Winter camping, she says.
This is something I never heard, but before I could think, it pops out from my mouth: “Wait a minute. You are taking the two things I hate most in the world, winter and camping, putting them together, and calling it a vacation?”
She was very offended by this (and by most other things I said). But I didn’t mean any disrespect. Vive la différence!
