How I got rid of my boss.

During the past week, I was involved with the disappearance of my boss. I tried keeping quiet about it but my conscience soon nagged me to the point where I needed to post this story of what really happened.

I think my boss hated me from the start and was trying to find anything to yell at me about, especially the soft music that played in the call room to keep the agents calm and content. The music drove her nuts and she yelled at me through the online chat room that was set up as a means for agents and supervisors to communicate. So began the following exchange:

Thedia(3:33:33PM): MICHAEL, TURN THAT MUSIC OFF!
Michael(3:33:33PM): But I’m not the one playing the music!
Thedia(3:33:33PM): MICHAEL, TURN THE MUSIC OFF RIGHT NOW!
Michael(3:33:33PM): I AM NOT PLAYING ANY MUSIC!!
Thedia(3:33:33PM): MICHAEL, WHERE ARE YOU SITTING?

Whenever my boss asked me where I was sitting, that meant trouble as she wanted to come up to me and yell right in my face before the other agents, which was not a pleasant experience. Fortunately for me, I was not sitting at my assigned seat due to a shortage of seats, and I had to sit somewhere else in the call room, away from where Thedia sat so I could not even see her. I decided to use this to my advantage.

Thedia(3:33:33PM): MICHAEL, I ASKED YOU WHERE ARE YOU SITTING?
Michael(3:33:33PM): At my desk.
Thedia(3:33:33PM): DON’T GET SMART WITH ME MICHAEL, WHERE ARE YOU SITTING?
Michael(3:33:33PM): I am at the third row near the window.
Thedia(3:33:33PM): VERY FUNNY MICHAEL, THIS ROOM DOESN’T EVEN HAVE ANY WINDOWS!
Michael(3:33:33PM): But I have a very nice view of downtown Manila.
Thedia(3:33:33PM): MICHAEL ARE YOU IN THE PHILIPPINES?
Michael(3:33:33PM): Yes.
Thedia(3:33:33PM): I’M ON MY WAY, YOU WILL BE SORRY YOU NEVER TURNED OFF THE MUSIC!

About a minute later, I saw Thedia storm out of the call room, walking right past my desk without seeing me. That was the last I heard from her until yesterday when she initiated the following chat exchange.

Thedia(3:33:33PM): MICHAEL, I AM IN THE MANILA CALL ROOM, WHERE ARE YOU SITTING?
Michael(3:33:33PM): Oh, I’m not in the Manila call room anymore. I got transferred.
Thedia(3:33:33PM): WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
Michael(3:33:33PM): I am in Ĝåďööňšķ.
Thedia(3:33:33PM): WHERE’S THAT?
Michael(3:33:33PM): In Wöňfôďæœëðl.
Thedia(3:33:33PM): WHERE’S THAT?
Michael(3:33:33PM): Just Google it.
Thedia(3:33:33PM): I’M ON MY WAY!
Michael(3:33:33PM): I’ll be waiting.

She was never seen again.
