I think my boss finally gets it. I get back from my vacation and he says, about Elderly CW, "She annoyed the shit out of me every day while you were gone." And then provided examples and details that sounded all too familiar. Welcome to my world, dude. Alas, he'll never fire her. One of my worst fears is her dropping dead at her desk, or hearing a big THUD in the bathroom and having to go find her in there, or her not showing up here and I go check on her and find her dead in her house. Or some, "I've fallen and I can't get up!" situation. *sigh* Seriously, she's almost eighty. She has Dr's appts (which I get to hear about in great detail) at least twice a week. She's a nice enough lady, but she needs to retire.
