I started my new job yesterday. Details will be sparse because I do not have my employer's permission to share on my blog. I have not asked nor to I intend to.
Early in my five hour shift the boss asked me, "Who does your laundry? Do you wash your own clothes or does Mrs ERJ?"
I told him that I do my own laundry. Then I observed, "That is an odd question. Why are you asking?"
He responded, "Mrs ERJ is not on my payroll. You are. If Mrs ERJ does the laundry then I will give you jobs that will keep you cleaner. But since you do your own laundry I have more freedom to give you jobs that might make you grubby."
I shared that with Mrs ERJ and she now thinks my boss is a very righteous man.
I don't disagree.
