So when we get out of the bathroom (the communal speaking grounds at our house) Samantha is surprisingly content to play with a laptop toy, recently loaned to us by a friend. I get online, text/call 4 people without success, and then call the GM back,
GM, "Don't worry, I got the shift covered"
Me, (confused, as he didn't even "answer" the phone) "What?"
GM, "I got the shift covered."
Me, "Great. I just wanted to let you know, I got her to calm down and was able to text/call a few people, but got no answers."
GM (eerily cheerful), "Don't worry about it, it's all taken care of!"
Now, I was a teacher. I'm use to students who throw desks one day, and are perfectly cordial the next. I'm use to starting over and moving on.
But this was a really bad first impression.
I just keep telling myself- what a more honorable way to loose a job, than by taking care of your child...right?
