Google Talk Dooced Me

Ok, I dooced myself. FORK!!!! I managed to i.m. my boss about some travel plans this fall thinking he was my friend with the same name. DUMB. He is now convinced I am all about mixing business with pleasure (and he was already upset because he'd forgotten I'd be in Alabama this week) and my future is rather uncertain (not that anything has been certain with this job since I took it!). I feel Lame with a CAPITAL L.

To avoid confusion, I actually changed some of the names of people on my list. I have 3 Megans and 1 Meg!

Oh no!

At least it wasn't dirty, right? Well, I guess now s/he knows...

That happened to me twice over text -- only the people I sent it to were the subjects of shit talking. Oops. Also, once I im'ed my mom "I need a man" when I was drunk. I was really embarrassed.

I once sent a text to the wrong Adam that said, "Brough your CD. Taking pictures of Santa today.

Needless to say, Wrong Adam was really confused.

I hope your situation works out . . .

That stuff happens all the time.

Try not to worry about it, it will pass.

And if it doesn't, then you wouldn't want to work for that kind of boss anyway.

Thanks all - I no longer feel like a COMPLETE idiot, just partially so. It's true though - at least it wasn't something personal or inappropriate!!!

Eeeee. I'm just catching up. You know, if this job doesn't work out because of this, there will be something more compelling next. The job world is vast. Especially if you just need to pay your bills.
