So last week I was conveniently Jewish for the holiday.
I figured, new job, new bosses...need to get ‘em trained right off the bat right?
If there is an optional, religious holiday day off in question, sticker me Jewish please.
Nobody has ever questioned my Jewishness before.
Before last week that is….
Obviously Not Jewish Boss: “So what holiday is this anyway? I can never keep all of them straight.”
Who made you the Holiday Jew Police?
....and plus....er... I don't know.
Starting to Sweat Convenient Jew: “It’s a very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very religious holiday. We don’t like to talk about it”
Obviously Not Jewish Boss: “So what will you do on your day off? Go to temple?”
What’s with the inquisition Helen Hitler?
Now Schvitzing Profusely Convenient Jew: “Err, um..” searching Jewish…. Memory….Banks….Grandmother's...words...fading....fast
“cough, cough” - oh this is good - “cough, cough…something… caught…. In…throat, cough” grabs neck for effect.
Peeks one eye open....... Obviously Not Jewish Boss still staring.
So much for water for the choking Jewish girl.
Maybe she wants me dead.
Remind me to check her office for ovens.
Recovering Convenient Jew: “Cough, cough....Whew, that was a close one! …Sooooo…errr…what about those Irish laughing it up at funerals huh?...”
This Jewish thing is getting tough.
I might have to change jobs if this keeps up.
Is it too early to put in for Chanukah?
Nobody ever questions that one…thank God!
