so yesterday, she didn't come in to work. LMAO, i noticed the improvement straight away. mkay, i tell a lie, i actually hadn't even noticed, apart from the fact it was quieter than usual, so i asked if she was coming in and was told no. when i asked why, someone said "that depends on who you ask."
having contemplated that for a few moments and making absolutely no sense from it i enquired "WTF???" apparently, she rang in and was talking to one of the girls in our team. she told her that she wasn't going to make it in as she was feeling feverish. mkay, so far it was making sense, so then she got told "you have to speak to the team leader" which in our case is G.O.D. (aka grumpy old denis). now, everyone knows that this is the rule! if you are not coming in you MUST talk to a team leader and if they're not available, the manager. so the girl puts her through and thinks no more of it.
a little later, she goes to the team leader for something else and enquires as to whether we should expect dumbass to return the next day (that would be today, for those playing at home). a very confused team leader asks "why wouldn't she be in tomorrow? the funeral is today." bwuh??? what funeral??? you may well ask. so here's how it happened, she told the girl she was feverish, she told the team leader she couldn't come in because she had to go to a funeral. i merely sit here and ask the same question i started out with.....WTF???
