I have to work Monday, all day. My backup will be on vacation. She is here today so why am I?

Why am I?

Yesterday was dead.

Today, I can actually listen to the piped in music as there are no printers grinding.

No copiers copying.

No phones a ringing.

Eight maids a milking.

Whoa. I'm back.

But again, why am I here still?

Because they pay you to be there.

Try owning your own business.


Even when you aren't at work you are.

Good luck! My student teaching finished of Friday, so I get to go disrupt my 4th graders right before they leave for break.

My coworker is at home because when she got up this morning, she slipped and fell and fractured her arm. Man, why didn't I think of that?

Does she have more work experience than you?

I get to go into work tomorrow to move fruit flies around in vials so that in two weeks when the semester starts again, my students will have experiments to do. Otherwise, I'm trying to plan out exactly what I'll be doing every day for the next four months in two classes and labs.

To think I ended up in sales management when I could have moved fruit flies.

So I'm now on leave.

Why the hell did I stay up last night till 3am working on a work project?

Still, it was strange to fire off a routine request to another programmer at that time and actually get back a reply within a few minutes. Clearly I'm not the only night-owl!
