please just kill me

my new "place of work," which you should clearly interpret to mean "place of complete and utter despair," is set up to be like a home. this is so we can showcase our products and services in the manner they would actually be used.

apparently, it is also so that i can clean up after not only myself and the man i choose to be with, but the jack ass i work for too.

i came in this morning to this:
an open dishwasher full of his coffee cups- because i
drink tea from the same cup i use and rinse out everyday.


and even better:
post-its are classy, no?

At least the post-it didn't say, "Wash my damn dishes, bee-yotch!"

But I agree, this is disturbing.

Blogger Laurie Ann said...

I didn't know you worked for my boss.

Blogger Knitty Kitty said...

so wait, the dishes in there are clean, but you are expected to unload it? lame.

Wait, can I take this to understand that he hired you to be his pretend wife in his pretend house?

Honey, leave all of this weirdness behind and come live with me and the Aunt of the Sassiness here in loverly Seattle. I promise you won't have to do my dishes.


Unless you really want to. (ps, I erased my prior comment because it was rude and I'm trying to not talk about myself so much. And there I go again...)

Blogger myboyfriendiscrazy said...

Oh no, and he probably thought he was being considerate with the post-it. I think some post-it retaliation is in order..

Blogger Spinning Girl said...

and mop the floor!

wanna come work for me?

Blogger jiggs said...

i'm gonna punch your boss in the bonards

Blogger Mone said...

some men just still dont get it that we are NOT slaves for housework!!
Who wants to come and clean up my place? Including the kids rooms, which I stayed out of it for a long time already ;)

Blogger Spinning Girl said...

I think you should throw poo on them and then add a post it that says "Not Anymore"

Blogger Thérèse said...

This sort of thing is really the gift that keeps on giving.

You could always do a half-assed coffee-cup washing job.

Blogger Beeb said...

I would leave a post-it saying-

"yeah, and??"

Is his last name Berger?

Blogger Autumn said...

i'm sorry. very very sorry.

Blogger LotusKnits said...

I hate men like him. In the time it took him to find a Post-it, write the note, double scratch the word "ARE", and stick it on something, he could have unloaded the damned thing himself. Tell him we have fired him. He may go now.

Blogger melissa.in.london said...

Bastard.

I say you pee in his cup but tell him it's clean.

*shrug*

That's all I got right now...

Blogger Dirk the Feeble said...

Ouch.

Blogger Übermilf said...

Or you could add "Thank God for pennicillin!" at the end.

Or, fling poo a suggested by SG

Blogger Auntie Sassy said...

This is such a dude thing to do. As LotusKnits mentioned, I'm sure it took him just as much time to get his chicken scratch post-it note together as it would have taken him to unload the damned thing.
I have to ask...did he leave them all in the sink and make you load the dishwasher as well? With maybe a helpful note stuck to the faucet that said "These are dirty."

Blogger Auntie Sassy said...

Oh, and I totally agree with Hot Rod Libby Loo...come to Seattle. We don't do dishes here.

Okay, yes we do. But we are way fun.

Blogger TinaPoPo said...

oh, miss kendra. that is not good.

it reminds me of a temp job i had one summer. i found myself spending more time running out to buy my boss a new pack of Newport Lights than answering the phone or booking artists for the gallery. Fun.

Blogger Moe said...

I had to read the comments to figure out that your charming boss was inferring that you should unload the dishwasher.

My initial response was "good to know". You know, in case you wanted to use any of them. Very considerate.

I still think you need to hide a rotten potato in his office.

Blogger Sarah Smile said...

I would just ignore it. Thats what I do at work. I act oblivious until a direct question or request is made.
They tend to shy away from that because then they have to hear how ridiculous they are being.

Or add to the note, "Are you sure?"
That'll make him think, but doesn't imply any wrongdoing on your part.

P.S. I hate him for you.

Blogger Beeb said...

where are you? :)



ps: i've been a good doobie posting and such...

Anonymous Stella said...

That's his way of telling you to empty the dishwasher? Ignore, dude. Leave it alone. Refuse to get it. You are not his Mommy.

Blogger robiewankenobie said...

gee. ad this to the creepy phrasing, and i'm in love. is he single? *rolls eyes*

Blogger Melliferous Pants said...

This gives me flash backs to my nanny days.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Ugh. We have a dishwasher at work also. Our handyman/janitor empties as part of his duties, but there are notes everywhere reminding people to put their dirty dishes into it. People would eat at the lunch table and get up leaving their plates there. Like he's going to do table service.

Unless this was noted in your job description, I'd say something now. Before it goes on any longer.

Blogger Sunflowerfairy said...

The rotten potato idea is too nice of an idea for this guy.

I say use poop.

Cow, horse, elephant- whatever.

Dickhead.


And, whenever I see that a comment has been removed it just makes me want to see the comment more...like- oh, I missed something good again. Damn!

Blogger Grend31 said...

Cleanliness is next to godliness.

Clearly your boss is... a god.

A sleazy OCD pervy god.
