172. Impress the boss

My Story

Completed many times over.

I am an obsessive-compulsive hyper-organized perfectionist.

I suppose that could mean a lot of different things to different people.

To my bosses, it seems to always mean, “Wow! Look at this girl. She’s bright. She’s so talented. She’s sharp as a tack. She works so hard and I pay her so little!”

To me, it means, “I really want to go home/sleep/go to lunch, but I absolutely cannot until this is done. Even then, I will obsess over anything left undone so endlessly that I probably won’t enjoy my time off work or be able to sleep.” It means, “I’m going to take a lunch break just so I can cry because the fact that my desk is messy is stressing me out so much that I don’t think I can take it.”
