“When I heard that there was a promotion available at work, I decided to spearheard a new programme to impress my boss, and started referring to it as ‘my baby’. Weeks later, my boss called me into her office. I assumed I’d scored the coveted promotion. But when I went in there, she said, ‘Surprise!’ and handed me a cake that said, ‘Congrats on your new baby!’ She thought I was pregnant, since I kept talking about ‘my baby’! I had to tell her that I was not pregnant, and found out later that I hadn’t gotten the promotion either. So embarrassing.” article was, I blanked because I felt so groggy. I glanced at a paper on my desk, saw a headline about surfing, and made up some BS reason about why its tone felt fresh and beachy. The interviewer said, ‘You know that story is about couch surfing, right?’ I freaked and sent her a follow-up E-mail, where I explained my sickness. Unfortunately, I never heard back.”
A snake scarf? What a hilarious idea!
