Overheard at Table 2: Work and Migraines

So last week, my wife woke me up in the middle of the night, migraine so bad she was vomiting all over the bedroom, so I took her to ER and we were there til like 7am and finally got some medicine and I got her home around 9 and then texted my boss that my wife was sick - migraine, et cetera - and told the boss that I needed to stay home with her ...

and the boss texts me back, and says - get this - she says "Hope your wife's OK, need you to take the lead on the SCOPE meeting for Friday.  Put that on your calendar and schedule a conference room with Ops and Sales.'

and I was almost like, gonna text her back and say, "HAH!  Good one." and then I realized she was serious, and I'm thinking, what if my wife had actually DIED, you know?  Would my boss have given me until Monday?!
