Because she said I could.....
I'll share her work related angst and add in my own commentary. I did ask. I promise. She said, "OK".
She: I don't like washing cars at work. It's hot. I sweat. Boss made me do a car over four times before he was satisfied with the look of it.
Me: I didn't think that was part of your job description.
She: Unfortunately it is.We have a "car prep" guy but on certain days he doesn't start work until 10 and then we have to do it.
Me: I can imagine. Why don't you keep a pair of flats at work to wear when you have to wash cars?
She: Flats are gross. I look better in heels.
Me: You can't really wash cars very well in heels. Wear flats. Besides, it looks weird.
She: I'm thinking of getting some rain boots, wearing a shower cap, and putting on a rain jacket when I'm out there....just to make a point. Ya know? Let them see me wearing that.
Me: Flats would be just fine and take care of all the issues.
She: Naw....I look mo' betta in stilettos.
