My boss' wife rules the house
My boss told me not to call his house on a Saturday until after noon. He spends time with his family on a Saturday morning.
One Saturday morning I called to discuss business with him and his wife answered. I asked for him and she said that he woke up and went back to bed. She told me that whatever the problem is, I should wait until he gets there in the evening.
I told her that I could not wait, and she asked me whether he had given me my week's wages, and I told her yes.
I had never met her personally. We only talked on the phone, but I did not like the way she spoke to me.
When I saw my boss, I told him what had happened and he reminded me that he told me not to call on a Saturday morning because it is family time.
He said, "I may be your boss, but my wife is my boss and I don't want to lose the job." He laughed and apologised for the way she talked to me.
During the week, I received a beautiful gift basket from his wife. This woman and I have become good friends.
Some couples have special days they spend together. Your boss and his family enjoy Saturday mornings.
It was unfortunate that you had to call him on a Saturday morning, but everything turned out well.
