Snow Work Day

Sigh… The Peanut Butter, The Jelly & Honey Mustard all have a snow day today…

But not me…no sireeee, I’m at work… toiling away, listening to the wind howl and watching the snow pile up and swirl outside my office window (yes, I have an actual office with an actual window – one positive about this job…)

Has anyone ever seen the episode of The Simpsons (Episode 7F03 – ‘Bart Gets an F’) where Bart prays for snow because of a test? He gets his prayer answered and while the entire town of Springfield has fun in the snow (a day Mayor Quimby proclaims as “…Snow Day, the funnest day in the history of Springfield!”), he’s stuck inside…

Welcome to my world...

Sure, my employees are here (most of them) the doctors are nowhere to be found… and we’re under a Blizzard Warning until midnight.

Sigh...

Why did I get into HR/Operations? Why didn’t I follow my brother (a professor) and my wife (an administrator) into education?

Because I’m an idiot, that’s why.

But you all knew that......

I feel your pain. We're supposed to have a storm lasting all through the day tomorrow. My sister starting worrying about the snow, and I replied, "what are you worried about? You'll have a snow day." She's a teacher. I'm already dreading having to drive to work in a foot of snow while more is coming down.

You wanna know another suck? I work at our apartment complex, so there is no excuse in the WORLD that I could give, weather wise, as to why I can't go into work. People got to leave early to avoid traffic. Not me. I just have to walk my ass next door.

So I'm with ya on the whole 'work + snow = UNFAIR' thing.
