>My boss, John, is being very nice about my leaving and even gave me the name of a friend of his, Rick, an attorney who is looking for an office manager.
So, I finally call Rick up and his assistant answers. I’m hesitant about giving the reason for why I’m calling because I don’t know if the assistant answering is the one who is going to be replaced or what.
Of course, Rick doesn’t have voicemail, so the assistant takes a message. I give her my name, phone number and the name of my boss as a referral. Then the assistant asks, “What are your charges?”
I sat there for a second going, “Charges? What charges?”
Then I realize she means CRIMINAL charges. John’s friend is a defense attorney.
“Oh! I’m sorry. I’m only looking for employment.”
