Apparently I work for the government


My superior is responsible for invoicing our customers. I have recently discovered that she has not invoiced some of them for more than six months. My customers keep asking me where the invoices are, and if we are working for free. I smile and admit that I don’t know. I send my superior messages asking her why she hasn’t invoiced. She ignores them.

I’m not sure how we are still making money, or if we are making money. Perhaps it doesn’t matter. Maybe we are actually a government entity, printing our own money and pretending it’s worth something. That works only as long as people play along with the charade.

I will know whether we’re making money (or not) when a paycheck bounces. Then I’ll resign and begin freelancing. ;-) It’s been fun while it lasted. I already have work lined up waiting.
