"Need Anything From Me?"

I've been very open with what we're doing with everyone I work with. I mean after all, I did have to give some shots at work and I had to be off last week at the drop of a dime. When I got the call about the ER, I stopped in my big boss' office and just told him that the following week would be when we were doing all our IVF stuff so I'd be taking my time off. He looks up, "Okay, do you need anything from me?" I just shook my head no but in my head I was giggling and responding, "No, DH's got that covered."

I told my immediate boss and we both got a good laugh out of it. Apparently, while I was out, she told him what he'd said and how it came across. They got a good chuckle out of it. In his defense, he said he didn't really know what was going on and didn't want to get too personal and ask any questions.

Yesterday, he came up and said, "So you need anything from me?" See I didn't know my boss had told him so we all laughed AGAIN but this time my cheeks were bright red. Anyways, it was pretty hilarious and I'm laughing as I type this post. So for everyone out there that read this blog, please don't ask "Need anything for me?" or I'll start giggling.

LOL! That's an awesome story. How nice that the people in your workplace are so supportive.

I wish I could be open about it; many reasons I can't. One of them is that the area I live in is Catholic. 99% of my relatives and in-laws are Catholic. 85% of my co-workers are Catholic. IVF is apparently an abomination, per the discussions I've overheard or had with these people. Not up for being told we're going to H-E-Double Hockey Sticks.

By the way.......




Do you need anything from me? :) :) :)

It also made me giggle :) My boss used to "get sick" with whatever I had. So I can just see me going through this and calling into work and the next week my boss having the same "virus" I had LOL. I don't know if I could be so open with him, he doesn't want to know personal stuff like that and probably wouldn't understand either.

And Christa, as an ex (or "fallen" as I call it) Catholic, my heart goes out to you. How awful that people can't be open-minded about this subject. GRRRR; one of the reasons I'm a fallen Catholic. Good luck to you as well.

Fun story! And it's great that you can be so open about it at work -- I think here I wouldn't, but I hope that with my new boss I can be...
