Man in a pink tutu - Compliments of Google


My boss frightens me. He doesn't smile, avoids eye contact, is quick to anger and demands perfection. I'm sure nearly everyone who works for him is on edge in his presence, and dreads speaking with him. I am in constant fear of being fired.

Today he made a random appearance at the office. He doesn't normally come in during this shift and so this visit had myself and my colleagues wondering if one of us had done something wrong.

I immediately thought it was me. He had come in to fire me for sure. I don't know what I could have done wrong, but I was waiting for him to call me into his office. But he paced around and asked us if there were any issues today. There weren't. The only problem today was seeing him!

My heart began to pound, and I imagined what may lay ahead. I was sure he was going to call me to come and sit down with him, then give me the bad news. My services were no longer required. I could almost feel the tears welling up in my eyes, and started to worry about looking for another job...

If he was to give me the sack, I thought, I didn't want to give him the satisfaction of seeing me cry. So, I decided to prepare myself. I remember someone once telling me before standing up to give a speech, that if I felt too nervous then I should picture the audience naked! This made me laugh. And it made sense. How could I be the one who feels awkward if everyone else was in an even more unwieldy position than I?

So, this is what I thought I would do. But I didn't want to see my boss naked, so I decided to instead picture him in a tutu! The very second I had the vision of him sitting behind his desk looking all serious, about to relay my doom...in a pink tutu I almost laughed out loud! And I immediately felt better. There was no way that I could become upset if this was going to be what I saw. And I almost looked forward to it, just to get a giggle.

Once again my boss slowly walked passed my desk, scanning the room with his beady eyes. And then...he wished us all a good evening and left.

We were all so relieved. And at least now next time I will be prepared...
