You’re my little secret and that’s how we should keep it……….
I’m not Xscape but I’m 80’s Baby and I have a secret. I’ve never really had to keep a secret so this is all new to me. This secret has been weighing me down and when it was fresh I felt like a black cloud was constantly following me. However, I’m currently like 8 months into my secret so I’ve pretty much accepted the situation and it’s nothing I can do about it except come clean.
So here it goes…..On 5/14/08 I traveled to my hometown for the weekend. I arrived at my friend’s apt and I remember sitting on the couch and because of my keychain my work keys were uncomfortable in my pocket so I took them out and laid them on the table. The weekend went on and I went out with my friends and spent time with my family. The weekend’s over and I go back to work on Monday and our office suite is locked. So I dig in my purse. No keys. So I just borrow someone else’s and I’m thinking they’re in my car. Check my car. No keys. Check my luggage. No keys. So I’m like oh, I must have left them at my friends. Call my friends to check their apt for my keys. No luck. So I’m thinking they didn’t look good and I know my keys are over there.
Maybe I should mention I work at a medical facility and we have two huge divisions. I didn’t have a master key but I still had a general key and the key for those in my respective section. So for that week I mentioned to my coworkers I left my keys at home. One coworker decides to tell me that a Dr. had lost a master key and every door in both buildings had to be rekeyed and it cost over $300,000. At that point I got kind of scared. So it took a couple of weeks before I went home again but when I did I searched my friend’s apt. up and down and never found the keys. Then reality sunk in. No keys.
People get to work before me so I can get in our suite and I can get through my office by cutting through somebody else’s office. However, my main problem has been getting in the bathroom. We have a spare key for the bathroom but it’s kept in another lady’s office and she was peeping me using it so when she mentioned something to me about it I realized she was on to me. So now when she go smoke I go help myself to the bathroom key. The one other black person in my dept is the only one who knows I lost my keys so I borrow his bathroom keys when I can’t get to our spare key.
I’ve been dealing with this since May and every time I got the nerve to confess to my supervisor I couldn’t go through with it. In November, I received word that my supervisor’s supervisor was retiring in January. So I decided when she retires then I’ll come clean because only my supervisor will have to deal with it. So now the time is approaching and I’m more nervous than ever. Before you ask these keys can’t be duplicated and they’re numbered so it ain’t nothing I can do except confess. So there is my secret. My work keys are long gone.
I know I’m not the only one with a secret. So what about you? What are you hiding? Do you have any secrets that you plan to confess in 09? Now is your turn to come clean……
