I was talking with oldest boy Saturday when the anger washed over me.
I verbalized my resentment at being skunked out of my last vacation day because of someone else’s emergency.
I get it. It’s part of the job.
Or is it?
Is it part of my job or is it always because another doesn’t – hasn’t – can’t – do theirs?
Yep, there it is.
No one cares.
No one sees.
As long as the project gets done the powers that be won’t ask who did it.
And as we made plans to take the grand kids to a movie today, my boy asked a simple question:
Why don’t you take Monday then?
And so I did.
Can you relate to this? Whose load are you carrying that you’d like to leave by the side of the river?
