Whenever we’re going to be out of the office – whether for vacation or to work from home – we send our boss an Outlook meeting request so that she’ll have it on her Calendar.
I’m working from home on Monday, and again on Friday, so while I was sending out the invites I thought I might as well kill three birds with…well, three stones, I suppose, but whatever, and send out the invite for my planned day off for my birthday.
My birthday is on a Friday the 13th this year, so I wrote up the invite as follows:
Subject: Jon – OOO
Location: Camp Crystal Lake
Message: I’m heading up to Camp Crystal Lake for the weekend with my fellow hormone-addled camp counselors! What could go wrong?
I don’t think she actually noticed…
