I was at the beginning of what felt to be the longest shift of my life. On my break, I called him to complain about how bad my day was going and that I could really go for a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. A few hours later, I went to the staff room for my lunch break and about 50 packs of Reese’s Pieces overflowed out of my locker. All the other employees were awkwardly staring, but I was glowing ear to ear.
Postscript: Turns out, all the sweet things he did for me were just to cover up years of his cheating ways. I’ve moved on now, couldn’t be happier.
