    Should I tell her? Help ASAP please

    Really long story short, my boss is really really emotionally unstable and basically I can't really ever go to her for help so I usually just try and figure it out alone. I work in a bridal boutique. I myself suffer from anxiety and OCD which she doesn't know about and have had treatment. On Saturday I had three appointments to deal with alone while she was on holiday. First of all she got all cross with me when two people didn't buy anything. And then the third person bought an expensive wedding dress. The thing was, she didn't fit into any of our samples so I had to measure her to see what size to order. I have done this plenty of times before but never without my boss being there and also usually the size is kind of obvious by their shape. This woman came out at a size 22 and she was 5ft 10 tall and quite curvy but it just didn't look like she was a size 22! I checked about three times with the measuring tape. I called my boss who was immediately unhelpful and started barking at me. I was feeling so panicked I wanted to die and I still had to entertain the bride and all her relatives. A size 20 was decided on because the bride wanted to lose weight. Anyway, it is now Tuesday and I am beside myself. I feel sick and I can't sleep or eat. What if I measured her wrong? Even if I checked my technique could have been off. She didn't look that big! I am leaving this job in six weeks for uni and so my family says who cares it won't be my problem when the dress arrives but I can't live like this worrying. I am at work tomorrow, without my boss but we always talk via phone. I think I should tell her I possibly made a mistake. The thing is she will probably cry and shout at me and tell me to sort it out. Or just refuse to do anything. Or, if she does agree to ask the bride to come back in or something, it could go downhill because what if the bride isn't free at all and then panics something won't be right? Also, the factory may have already cut the dress. I don't know what to do.

    Worrying won't solve anything.

    Your quitting in a few weeks anyway.

    Since you called your boss while she was there you did the right thing.

    if you think she was too big for a 20 and she measured a 22 then you went smaller than what she measured then she should fit. If she is too small for a 20 after measuring a 22 then she will probably be happy and think she lost a lot of weight and will probably happily work on a smaller size and come back in. These are also things that happen daily so I wouldnt try to think about it or stress it.
