Saying it without actually saying it

I just believe that there are some things you have to be bold about when saying it. What's the worse that can happen, right? A student came by the other day because she missed taking her test at the regular time and wanted to know if she could make up an exam. In order for her to do that, she would have to take it over at our testing center and not in the classroom. So the young lady made an appointment to take the test and we had to make sure the test was over there before 9:00 a.m. Well by the time we had gotten to work at 7:30, the sun was already beaming and it was hot outside. I made my way into the cool air and was just about to unlock the doors when my boss said that she forgot about the test and that it needs to go over to the testing center. I looked around and saw that it was just me and her, so I said, "Why don't I make a copy of the test and send it as an attachment to the testing center and that way, they will have it and all they need to do is print it." It sounded like a good idea to me. My boss then said it was a nice day out and she will walk it over to the testing center.

See, in a hidden-behind-the-bush kind of way, she was really asking me to get in that sun and walk and in a hidden-behind-the-bush kind of way, I was letting her know that I was not getting out in that sun. I'm sorry if this comes out ugly, but I did not put on my nice white shirt that my hubby took the time to iron for me to get out in the heat and sweat while walking across campus and then come back smelling like a musty stallion. Yeah I said it!
