What is it about the year 2010 that makes people have less of a work ethic than they did in say... 1998....? It is amazing the lack of initiative people have, and yet they feel like they deserve twice the pay!

Case in point - a close of friend of mine has an assistant. Let's go over some of her glowing credentials:

1. Schedule.
It might say 8am-11am & 12n-3:15pm on the time clock, but what it really means is..... please feel free to come in ANYTIME but 8am.  I appreciate texts at 4am when you are coming back from your first day after your "unspecified length of time maternity leave" that you can't make it because your baby was up crying the night before. What's that? Your unemployed man can't stay home and nap with the baby? 

2. Sick Leave.
Of course you can call in sick numerous times a month for you and/or your child/spouse/significant other/weird relative. The first of the month (almost EVERY month for almost a year) is really the best time.

3. Confidentiality.
I would appreciate it if you could at least nod and act like you understand me when I say "This STAYS IN THE OFFICE" before you run over to your tenants houses and blabbity blab it all to them.

4. Training.
When I ask you to take notes, I mean take notes. Pick up a pen and paper and WRITE DOWN THE WORDS COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH. That way you can do What I tell you, How I tell you, When I tell you. Because we both know only are you NOT going to ask questions later, but I'm going to have to go over your work and fix all of your mistakes so I don't get wrote up at an audit.

I prefer to do all my notetaking in crayon and on edible parchment. That way it doubles as my afterschool snack and I can really say it got eated.

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
