Oh boy y’all! I met the boss today. Let me tell you about it.
I was scheduled to learn a new press. This press is the break you press. People walk off mid shift all the time because of this particular press. Or at least, that’s what I heard. I did see a guy walk off at lunch and never come back last week.
My trainer was already set up, and I was standing beside him ready to watch and learn. A guy, presumably a first shifter, came over to the press. He smiled at me and asked me how it’s going so far.
Me, being me, looked him square in the eye and said, “It’s terrible and I quit.“
He replied, “But you just started.’
To which I replied, “I know, but it sucks, so I quit.”
That’s when he introduced himself as the owner of the company.
So, y’all, that’s my awkward meet the boss moment.
Do you have any funny, crazy, embarrassing, etc… how I met the boss stories? I’d love to hear them.
