Wondering if I should be worried...***UPDATED***

Boss just called. When he says my name, it sounds like a father calling his daughter.
"Have you eaten?"
"No..."
"Well, good, we're on our way to the office, we're taking you to lunch."
Hangs up. I have no idea who "we" is, but is lunch with your boss a good thing? He's never offered to take me to lunch, just has brought stuff back for me...

Friday 3/31/06-Phew! Phew I didn't have to worry... he was taking three possible new agents out to lunch, they were all female. So either, he wanted them to feel comfortable with an employee there, or he really wanted to look like a pimp at the restaurant. They talked about real estate, numbers for our office in comparison to their current offices, I sat there and smiled. (I don't talk real estate, I don't want to look stupid. I'm just learning all this now...) So that was it. And he was complimenting me on my "sharpness" to them, which they seemed to like. He told them "She's so good at getting things done." Well, what else are you paying me for? So we may finally be getting some females in my office, and they seem very nice. So that was it. No biggie. Next time he asks me to lunch I won't be so nervous. (I'm insecure, sorry.) Oh- and can I say that that place had THE BEST chicken caesar wrap EVER? I think I found my new lunch place...and it's not too expensive. (My boss has expensive taste, I will admit I was looking more at the price of the food than anything.)

No, nothing to be worried about. Only in "Jerry Macguire" does somebody get taken out to lunch to be fired.

Okay, what happened????

I was stopping in to thank you for leaving a note on my boys' blog (www.bionicboys.blogspot.com). Yes, I can send him your way to help with laundry. But his hourly rates are HIGH! ;)
