GREAT EX­PEC­TA­TIONS

Cosmopolitan (India) - - CONFESSIONS -

“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!
