We Don’t Try, We Do!
This story is ridiculous from start to finish. The boss had somehow forgotten their phone at a Las Vegas casino, so they tasked the OP with finding their phone. After searching everywhere, the OP reported that the phone was gone, but they would continue to look.
However, they were on a tight schedule with an important client, and for some reason, the client didn’t receive another phone number to call in case of an emergency. And the OP was fired for not living up to the “We don’t try, we do!” motto. Well, you lost your phone, but that’s somehow someone else’s problem?
