  • I sent my boss to the emergency room!

    Well, today was a bit of a disaster at work. I only work part time, and in the 5 hours that I worked today I managed to send my boss to the emergency room!! I work at a museum and I was laminating labels for exhibits. In walks a family, so I stop laminating to give them an introduction to the museum etc. When I return to laminating, the d*** machine jammed and started melting the plastic and smelling up the whole museum. At exactly that moment, the family wants to purchase some things from the gift shop. So, I turned the machine off (so it wouldn't smell so much and get worse) and I assisted the family. When I got back the machine, the plastic had cooled and thereby turning into an impossible mess to get out of the machine. I pushed the release button but the laminate was stuck fast. Throughout all of this, my boss was out to lunch. She came back to me sitting on the museum floor and pulling on the laminate. She took it from me to try to get it out herself. SO SHE starts struggling with the d*** laminate machine, and finally takes scissors out to poke inside the machine... well, they worked, and got the laminate out, but they ALSO swiped her face really bad AFTER getting the laminate out.... She was bleeding like a stuck pig.... ended up needing stiches.

    Sigh, WHAT a day!

            I'm mostly embarrassed and hopes she doesn't blame me too much. After all, I didn't TELL her to use the scissors like that, she did that on her own..... I just set all the events in motion that led to that. Sigh. Shes fine, there will be a scar though.
