Aaron is a little on edge. He’s
asking everyone if u had
mentioned what time u were
going 2 be in tmrw.
Everything’s ok, right?
What a tool, I thought. Must he always involve everyone we work with when he’s pissy with me?
The next message revealed itself to be even more ridiculous.
Holy shit! His baldness just
fired 1 of the interns in front of
EVERYBODY for delivering a
letter addressed to u with his
mail stack. Thought his head
was going to explode! Major
screamfest @ that poor kid.
Where are u T?
Jesus Christ. He really does want a lawsuit for hostile work environment, because he’s certainly working hard at building a case against himself. Bet he wished it was me he was firing. Fuck him, I’m not going to be scared to lose my job because he’s a prick.
The third and final IM had come just a few minutes before I turned my phone back on and caused me the most concern.
T, if u get this soon, get to the
office as soon as you can. Your
favorite boss just called a
meeting with all the A&R reps!
That was enough for me to call Dana right away. It rang once before she answered just above a whisper.
“Tell me you’re on your way?”
“Getting in my car now, what the hell is going on, Dane?” I looked at my watch as I revved the engine to my recently washed car in my driveway, and saw that it was already 9:15 a.m.
“I don’t know, Tina. Oscar and Esai just came in here to ask if I had seen you. They said Aaron called a last minute meeting with them and they just shut the door to the conference room right now.”
I pinched the bridge of my nose, already feeling a headache coming on.
“Shit, okay. I’ll drive like a bat out of hell. Did the guys say what the meeting may be about?”
“They hadn’t a clue.”
“Fuck. I’ll see you in a bit then. Call me if you get any information before I get there.”
“You got it, T.”
We said our goodbyes, and I stomped the gas pedal, determined to get to the office before the meeting was disbanded. I was pissed that I hadn’t received any messages from the bald bastard himself about this surprise meeting he was springing on my subordinates.
