An Encounter with the HR Manager

I said, well, no.

JZ, one of the lead architects, is still out with the same thing (he still has PTO time. I burned all my up on writing days and trips to NY). After lamenting about the fact that I’ve been barely able to get down toast and soup for the last week, she said, cheerfully, “Well, you’re getting really skinny!”

You’re sick and starving, but hey — YOU’RE LOSING WEIGHT! Be joyful!

I just want some goddamn nachos.
