SOFT SPOT

I know this isn’t trendy, but I have a soft spot for my boss. When I’m moody she tells me: “Margot, you’re moody today, did I do something wrong?” Never in my life has someone taken full responsibilty for my moods. To have a boss who’s insecure feels like a novelty. She usually comes in late, around eleven, saying that she overslept. She then enters her office, creates chaos, and calls some of her friends. At twelve she’s more or less ready for work. If she’s happy she will make you laugh but if she’s angry she will slam the door and blow up in your face. She hugs you when you’re overtired and she cries if you decide to quit your job. Out of all my bosses she is the most human boss I’ve ever had.
