Story Notes:

I had a crap morning one Tuesday in 2007. A friend and co-worker sent me a very funny little video meme to cheer me up.  And I was cheered. So, I wrote:

Thanks so much for doing your part to cheer me up; I totally owe you a short story or meme of your choice.

And, she wrote:

You should write one about Buffy working in an office environment with a psycho boss...

So, that's the genus of the following insanity.

May cause flashbacks, if you've ever worked for an irrational boss.  Also, this has not been beta'd.  You've been warned.

Wow, this story has brought back the memories! Until 2023, when I added Chapter 3, this was all I had written of this story. I was surprised (and honestly a bit embarrassed) at some of the language I had to remove from this chapter. I've become a lot more aware about ableism in the last ten years, there was a lot that needed to be reworded. If I missed anything, PLEASE let me know.

This is the last section I have completed, so I don't know when there will be another update. I hope everyone enjoys regardless. The comments have all been great, I'm so excited that this story has meaning for so many people.
