Hello, Human Resources?

March 12, 2007

Hello, HR? Hi, it’s employee number 24601. I caught the horrible stomach virus from my children and have not eaten since Friday. Therefore, I will be unable to come into work today. I no longer have the strength to even carry my 20lb daughter up the stairs. Please arrange for someone else to dress, feed, diaper, and entertain my children today. A background in basic home cleaning is also useful as there is a mountain of laundry and a sinkful of dishes.

What?!?!? I don’t get sick days? This is outrageous. I’ve got to talk to someone about my job description.

    I’m feeling for you and sending lots of “get well” love your way.

    The only thing worse than being sick and having sick kids at the same time is having a sick husband!! They are the biggest children of all. So I’m praying for you that your dh doesn’t get it too!

    hehehe. This is funny, seriously! Not only are our ‘vacation days’ filled with child-centered activities, but we have no ‘sick days’ to boot! My hubby once commented that the only sick days he’s taken so far have been to stay home when I was the one ill. Now is that not a strong clue as to how staying at home needs to be recognized as a legit full-time paying job??!!

    Thanks for visiting Dad Said, Mom Said. Hubby thought it’d be a good idea for him to air out his complaints – so far he’s been told to “Just keep dreaming!!!” Ha!

    Thanks for keeping up with us. This post is so funny and so true! I guess we’ll look back on these days some day and wonder how in the world we survived.

    Take care,
