We all make mistakes

We all do stupid things throughout our lives, but then again, we also do some REALLY stupid things throughout our lives. Its a funny thing how you can spend so much time at work doing everything to the best of your ability, trying your best to excel so you can move up. All only to accidentally sms your boss telling her she is crazy.

Yes you read correctly. I accidentally sent my boss a message saying that she is crazy (it obviously wasn't meant for her - but then again, i was not implying it in that way). 

She was on her way out to a meeting, quite frantically i might add. However i NEEDED to ask her something urgently. So i asked her and she seemed agitated (understandably). She answered me - and i realised that i needed to know another detail so i quickly asked her a second question. That was it, she got very agitated and walked to her desk to check for me on her laptop. The question i asked might i add didnt require her to go check it up, and even if it did she could have merely stated that it would have to wait and i would have understood. She checked for me - Still constantly throwing it my face that she had a meeting to be at. I was quite taken aback, because i really did not mean to inconvenience her in anyway, but she really took it upon herself to make it a huge inconvenience. Upon showing me what i needed to know she asked me "Can i go now?" which made me just a little annoyed because i didn't ask her to stay to do me that small favour. She is my boss, if she wanted to leave she could have just left.

Anyways moving along from that she left, and i proceeded to type an Sms "_Boss' name_ is a bit crazy atm. Geez... lol". Being caught up in the moment as i was, i accidentally sent it to *drum roll* my boss. I got a phone call from her a few minutes later asking why do i think she is crazy? Who was the message for? Disrespectful, etc etc etc.... Oh and then she hung up on me :) *sigh* now if we could pause for a second and analyze what i meant that maybe we could all calm down a little. I did NOT mean crazy as in mental, psycho, etc. Everybody has their off day, or off moment and i understand that. I was merely saying "crazy" as in frantic, rushed, etc. Like you might say to somebody "Oh ya things at the office are a bit crazy at the moment" Or "My boss is a bit crazy at the moment". 

So yeah... Im in the dog box. I really am not that kind of person, im not one to get into trouble (not much anyways :P) but now my boss thinks that i think she is crazy. She thinks that im disrespectful. There goes my "just over 1 year" clean slate. I hope she understands that it was a big misunderstanding, because it really was not meant like that. Goodbye raise i was hoping for sometime this year :P lol
