O/T. Boss coming to town
I work from home and have for several years, which sucks when you have step he'll because everyone expects you to babysit the stepshits while you work. But back to the topic...
I have had the same female boss the entire 8 years with my company. She is around my age and we have gotten to know each other well. She is newly divorced and likes to share her dating life details with me...sometimes way more info then I want.
I like her as a person and enjoy working with her but sometimes tolerate her non work related chats just to keep the peace since she is my boss.
Well today she informs me she is planning to come to my town for a weekend soon. Just to hang out with me. I absolutely do not want this and am anxious as hell about it. I live in a smallish town and the nearest hotel is 30 minutes away AND not a good hotel. I explained this hoping she would forget the whole idea. Nope she keeps pushing and bringing up options for her stay. I don't want her in my home. I like my work and personal life separate and I am having anxiety over this. She is not getting the hint that I don't want her here. I offered to meet her at a larger city so there is more to do....nope. She insists on coming despite all the obstacles I am pointing out.
Now I am sick to my stomach. This is my safe haven. Even though I work from home, I can shut down at the end of the workday and walk away and forget about work.
I am thinking I will just have to have an excuse everyone she suggests a specific weekend.
