During the course of the night, I had a
dream nightmare that went a little something like this:
I picked up the phone like I normally would when on duty and set it down in one room. I continued to have a great night. Frankly, I do not remember what I did next; I could have gone swimming in the ocean, played basketball with a mountain lion or perhaps I wrote up Cheech and Chong for violating a certain policy (I'll let you guess which one). What I do remember is waking up the next morning in my
dreamnightmare and finding the phone in the exact same place I had put it the night before.
I had never had the phone with me! OH CRAP! Well, maybe it was a slow night and I didn't need to respond to anything. Wait...WHAT?!? 32 missed calls and 9 voicemails?! Hmmm...well maybe I'll see what one of the voice messages is. "We are waiting for you in the lobby...WHERE ARE YOU?!?" CRAP CRAP CRAP! I am sooooo fired!It was at that point that I woke up. I had the feeling that I was going to be fired for sure. Let's just say that the duty phone is going to be attached to my hip next time I am on.
