Heredity Can Be a Bitch in Both Directions

February 5, 2004

Got an e-mail from my mom last night. Pretty normal stuff, except for: "I actually managed to lose my temper today and told [the boss] he's a jackass. Oh God...tomorrow should be interesting."

I really hope she doesn't lose her job; finding new work at 50 is a little harder than finding new work at 26. Actually, I hope she keeps her job, sends out resumes, gets a new job, and tells the boss what she thinks of him in great detail while handing in her two weeks' notice.

(Why yes, the Irish genes come from Mom's side of the family. Why do you ask?)
