The scene: Farewell lunch for my boss who is going on maternity leave; ten senior HR people, consisting of my project team, my new boss, my boss’s boss (BB), and her peers.
Mid conversation BB turns to me and says, “CP, Do you know Draconian?”
CP (Should I lie???): “Errr Yes”
BB: “I believe he is single, would you consider being set up with him? I think you both have very similar qualities and interests, frankly I think you guys would be a perfect match.”
CP: (Blushing, the kind of blushing where you feel your ears getting hot, and your face going red~ I don’t think I have ever blushed before.) “err….”
BB: “I could always set things up, introduce you to each other, frankly I think he would fall for you in a heart beat……”
Others in the table lean forward and begin to express opinions on how exactly we are suited to each other.
Thus I am convinced, the gods are against me. It’s hard enough getting over this man, but to have my boss’s boss try and set me up with him.
Seriously, when does that ever happen?
