Co-worker isn't in today - her husband fell at dialysis yesterday (x2) and has been admitted into the hospital. He's got a bactieral infection (they think), they are having a hard time keeping his blood pressure normal (when he was admitted, it was way, way, WAY low, 2 hours later it was something like 250/100. (Way HIGH). He's in dialysis now, and when he gets done they will be wheeling him into surgery to put in a "pit line" (?) - a catheter directly into the heart. :shudder: NOT fun at all.
Especially when you consider that Ms boss is being a bitch about it (yeah, she's REAL Chrischun, y'know.) - she told co-worker yesterday morning (BEFORE we got the call from the dialysis center) that if she needed to be with him, SHE needed to know so she could find someone else. THEN, she told me...wait, let me back up a bit. Our A/C has been out - again. Yesterday, they were working on it. The lady next door came in to update us, and told us that the people across the hall were thinking of moving out - they are a web-based business, and Tuesday they nearly lost their server due to high heat. I off-handedly remarked that I didn't blame them...and was told by Ms boss that maybe *I* should move, since I had that opinion. :blink:
She is a HR nightmare. Co-worker and I are just biding our time..the minute she fires either one of us, we will BOTH go to an attorney. This is....if the compensation (NOT the pay...the pay..well, I haven't had a raise in over 8 years) weren't so good (the company pays MY health insurance AND the kid's, plus I get a little bit of gas compensation - not a lot but it helps - ...both of which Mr Boss started back before he got so sick) I'd be out of here now. :sigh:
At least I have a lunch date to look forward to....Sweet Geek ran me home last night, since I carpool with co-worker, and Libby was at her house. I think he deserves to be compensated...:grin:
