secretaries i've loved...

since graduating from law school in 2004, i've had two secretaries, and both of them have shit themselves at work.

the first time, i was working at a little law firm in gainesville (50 minute drive from atlanta both ways, NO BIG DEAL!). i came in early and was sitting at my desk when ka_hy buzzed me on the intercom from her desk downstairs (the office was in a old two-story house). she said, [hostage crisis], i've got to ask you a question. "go ahead." i've got kind of an upset stomach and i, uh, think i need to go home and change my clothes. "go ahead."

the second time was a couple months ago at my current place of employ. our intern was chatting with marlene (name changed b/c of my own sweetly naive wariness about internet searches) and trying to make small talk. the intern said, wow, that was some heavy lunch we just had, huh? and marlene says, "no kidding! i was sitting at my desk and was like, uh oh! i tried to run down the hall to the bathroom but didn't make it." never went home to change her clothes.

big cat had told me about this. amazing.

even more shocking than this happening to both secretaries is that they both fessed up. god forbid that this ever happen to me, but if it did i can't imagine i would "come clean" to a co-worker under any circumstances.
