A blonde goes into work one morning crying her eyes out. Her boss concerned about all his employees well being asked sympathetically, "What's the matter?"
The blonde replies, "Early this morning, I got a phone call saying that my mother had passed away."
The boss feeling very sorry at this point explains to the young girl. "Why don't you go home for the day, we're not terribly busy, so just take the day off to relax and rest."
The blonde calmly states, "No, I'd be better off here. I need to keep my mind off it and I have the best chance of doing that here."
The boss agrees and allows the blond to work as usual. "If you need anything just let me know."
A few hours pass and the boss decides to check on the blonde. He looks out over his office and sees the blonde hysterically crying. He rushes out to her asking, "What's so bad now, are you going to be okay?"
"No," exclaims the blonde, "I just received a horrible call from my sister and she said that her mom died too."
