Wednesday, July 28th, 9h15:

boss: Morning

me: Morning. I just ran over a bird.

boss: What?

me: I killed a bird. With my car. I'm so sorry about that. *sighs*

boss: I bet the bird is glad to hear that. Oh wait. It's not! It's DEAD.

me: *feels incredibly guilty* It wasn't on purpose! It flew directly under my tire; too fast for me to react.

boss: Oh well... I guess that makes it okay... I just hope the little birds will die fast.

me: *alarmed* What? What little birds?

boss: It's July. Birds are breeding right now. You killed a parent bird. The young ones are gonna die. They're going to sit in their nest, waiting for their mum, but she'll never come.

me: Oh. God. I'm going to hell. *collapses. headdesk*

boss: Did you at least go back and check if it was really dead, that it doesn't have to suffer anymore?

me: What? No! It was on the highway. There was no way to go back and check anything. *defensive*

boss: *looks at me in silence*

me: *eyes brimming with tears*

boss: *grins* Coffee?

*glares at your boss*

You're not going to hell. People who enjoy twisting the knife go to hell. You can tell your boss that from me! ("A random authority on the internet said...")

Seriously, *hugs*. It's feels awful when these things happen. My husband ran into a little Bambi that came bounding over the motorway, once. No chance of stopping in time. Just, :( :( :(

He's such a man. I'll tell him what you said. *hugs you* Thank you for your support.

I'm so sorry about this little bird. I didn't mean to kill it. And I could feel the car going over it. GAH. Can't imagine what it would be like to hit a bambi :'(

*pets* *seconds what thimble kiss said*

I ran over a deer once, and when I tried to check on it (car front wrecked, but I could drive on), it hobbled away in a no-good way. I was devastated. I called the wildlife service. Not sure if they understand one word of what I was saying on their hotline.

That's terrible. I hope it got away and recovered. I've never hit anything bigger than a bird, and this is only the second one, but damn, it doesn't feel good.

Aw, your boss is totally sadistic! This sort of thing happens. I hit a deer several years back and felt bad about it, but there was nothing I could have done. I'm sure it's the same with your bird. *hugs*

*hugs you* He found it hilarious that I feel bad about the bird. And I'm so glad it wasn't a bigger animal. Thank you for your support.

Your boss is a bad, bad person. *hugs* I ran over a cat several years ago and went back with a flashlight looking for it. I never found a body, and I felt bad for days. I still feel guilty about it now.

He's evil. And he's an expert in inter cultural communications and head of our department that does nothing but help people communicate.

*hugs you* Maybe the cat wasn't badly hurt and recovered? Cats are tough creatures.

Awwww honey!!!! There were NO baby birds. In fact, the bird that you killed was an EVIL bird. It was on a mission to destroy the world, killing all sheep everywhere. You did the world a service.

And if that didn't help. HUGSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

Oh, and your boss will accidentally spill icy-hot in his underwear.
