image for "The Lady Who Does That" Suddenly Quits, Creating Office Chaos

Carla Waters, known around the office as "The Lady Who Does That," is really not there today. Her departure has created mass confusion and outright hysteria among the customer service department of Bulger, Inc.

Waters, who worked for Bulger for the last 42 years, grew tired of being ignored and overworked and finally had enough. She quietly slipped out the back door during her morning break.

"I was tired of being accused of not being there while having tons of work forwarded to me on a daily basis," complained Waters. "Most of it I wasn't even responsible for. I've had to fix just about everything around here and not just office stuff. One time I had to clean up somebody's vomit for the maintenance crew and I can't tell you the number of commodes I unclogged. I've made a million pots of coffee and cleaned out the stupid break room refrigerator nearly every week. But when it came time for employee recognition awards, I was passed over because the corporate brain trust kept saying I wasn't there. I put a red flag over my desk so everyone in customer service, including the boss, would know when I was at work. But still, I would overhear reps telling customers I was not there today. I didn't get it. It was like I was invisible all those years. So now, they can find another Lady Who Does That to do it."

When asked for comment from the Media Relations Department of Bulger, Inc. this reporter was told, not surprisingly, "The lady who does that is not here today."
