RE: Why was today a good day thread
I have a young woman that I supervise who happens to be the daughter of the owners. She 'told' me Tuesday that she would be out on Friday. Okay, I kind of let that slide a bit - she really should have requested the day off.

Today at two she walked in and said, "Okay, I'm out, see you Monday." And she left. The other young woman that works for me looked at me and I looked at her and just let that soak in a bit.

Decision to be made...how do I handle this? So, I went to ask her dad if he was serious about treating her like it was a real job and not like she gets special treatment 'cause mommy and daddy own the business. He was busy. Crap.

Guess who shows up - mom. And mom is not happy that daughter just announced she was leaving three hours early and bailed. Mom suspended daughter without pay for a few days. I don't have to talk to dad. Since mom is usually not anywhere near the office the timing couldn't have been better.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Why was today a good day thread
my husband answered my 6th grade daughters math questions. whew! I dodged a bullet. Good thing I was smart enough to marry someone who understands it when the alphabet and parenthesis get throw into a math problem.


although I do cover all the school volunteering, projects, written papers, speeches and research assignments. The least he can do is cover the math. Tongue

I managed to attend an exam and end it before the proctor called the end of the exam...

That counts for something toward today, right?

Victoria's Secret is having a 7 for $26 sale and I just so happen to have a VS gift card from graduation that doesn't expire until February.

Also dying parts of my hair blonde.

Today is good.

RE: Why was today a good day thread
Today a video game I was looking forward to that was supposed to be released on Christmas got released over a month early because the creator didn't want to wait three days to release the demo.

I can't find the logic in it (totally expecting to wake up tomorrow to find it was some kind of mistake), but I'm glad it happened.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Today I managed to ensure the government would continue paying me to be a student!

Additionally, I got the second volume of Attack on Titan today as an early Giftmas gift.
