ERMAGHERD! JIMMY ROLLINS DIDN'T RUN SO FAST
He fessed up today:
“I was just upset before I even got up there. I was already out of it. Mentally just upset.”
This reminds me one time of back when I had a job. I showed up at Caldor and my cat died. So I walk in and my shirt was untucked and my manager Jimmy Nixon came to me and say, "Yo Jorge, what are you doing? Your shirt is untucked!"
It was the 1750th day that I worked at the Caldor in my retail career.
I was like, "Damn my cat died and I'm all sad and stuff".
Then Jimmy is like, "but your shirt was untucked like six other times since you worked here. I'M GONNA HARP ON YOU ALL FRIGGIN DAY LONG BECAUSE OF THIS ONE TIME."
Did I screw up? Yeah I screwed up, but I had a bad day.
Then Jimmy said, "Just kidding - I forgive you. You've been a good guy all this time. You are one of the best Caldor employees I ever had".
And he let it go, because PEOPLE MESS UP. At least he said he's sorry.
So give the guy a break. People make a mistake now and then and if you have a job so long you might do it more than once. My Caldor boss taught me a great lesson. (Then we all got laid off when it closed).
