Some Thoughts From Work

Something happened today to make me thing about a few things while at work today.

If you're adult enough to get a job and come work for me be adult enough to call in when you're sick and not have your Mom or Dad call for you. (Of course if you're in the hospital than I understand a second party calling in for you.)

If I have to fire you because you're not doing your job, which means I've sat down with you at a minimum of three times to discuss whatever problems we're having, don't send your Father in to ask me why I fired their child. I'm not going to discuss your job performances with anyone besides you and that includes your parents.

If you have to work a day you want off don't have your Mom or Dad call me to ask if I can give you the day off. I make the schedule two weeks in advance and if you put in a request I try to honor it, but asking me two days before the day you want off because you want to go to the beach or whatever, it's not going to happen.

Ok, I could go on and on but I won't. It just surprises me sometimes what people will do or try to do. I just always assume if you're adult enough to get the job than you're adult enough to handle it. I guess that's not always the case.
