Very nice story!
What a monster she must of been!! You boss was probably more afraid of her, than liking her. Maybe he didn't know how to handle her. Ha, amazing how people can be so controlling and evil.
You aught to get a note from the doctor on the plant, for safe keeping, incase the plant situation comes up again. Cuz it really has helped you with the panic attacks like antidepressants without the side effects.
Make sure you take care of your plant, don't let it dry up, or don't overwater it. Unless the plant people are doing it.
I bet she's aching for someone else to belittle and put down.
