The panic of work dreams

I hate a work dream. I used to have them all the time back in my days of working in ye ole pizza shoppe. One time I was sound asleep, it was like 9am after a long night out or maybe I worked the night before. I'm usually an early to rise type so I must have been up late to still be sound asleep at 9. Well the phone rang and rang and I reached over and groggily answered it "Fellini's Pizza". The minute I said it i realized what I had done and of course it was my boss. I remember I was having a work dream and then it morphed into real life and the boss was calling to see if I could come work. And of course I never lived that one down. Last night I had a work dream- a very vivid one. But this time it wasn't for MY work! I was dreaming that I was sleeping (funny huh?) and I dreamt I woke up in a panic because Olivia got her schedule wrong. Oh no! She's on a mini vacation and she has to work the busser shift tomorrow! CRAP! In my dream I was frantically trying to get in touch with her to let her know to come home early but I could never reach her so I ended up going in to Savage Pizza to work for her so she wouldn't get fired or yelled at. I'm that good of a friend.
I'm not sure if dreamt is really a word but I dreamt horribly and now I'm having work dreams for other people?!!! No! Make it stop!

1. Thanks for your first post!

2. I totally think "dreamt" is a word...it's not underlined in red on my computer.

3. Work dreams blow. It all seems so unfair...
