So a few days ago my manager wanted to take me to lunch but alas! it was a Wednesday and he forgot that I can only work half-day due to a lame meeting I have to attend in San Francisco. I didn’t really think about it too much until I was sitting through my boring-ass meeting. “It couldn’t be…he’s never asked me to lunch before…could it possibly mean…no it couldn’t be…is this ‘THE TALK’ about my future prospects?” All thoughts raced through my skull until it got to a point where I was second guessing myself; “Maybe he just wanted to check in…yea…that’s all it’s still 2 months until my internship ends so he just wants to check in and make sure I’m not burning out…”
Anyways a week passes by and he doesn’t ask again so me being and my preemptive nature casually ask if he wanted to try for lunch this week. OKAY! STOP! REWIND! Earlier today I made a small error in judgment which led to some machinery at work to reboot…not the best way to start the day but it happened so oh well! It was a pretty rough morning so before I “casually ” sent that text I was immediately overwhelmed with my mistake from earlier in the day. 10 minutes go past and still no reply…30 minutes…almost an hour go by without a reply; I check my phone to see that “there was an error sending your message” DANGIT! I scold myself for this noob mistake and resend the test and within 5 minutes he replies with “Yes please.” I am nervous once again.
More to come…
