I love the idea, really, I do !! Take your daughter to work day. It’s now take your kid to work day. I LOVE THIS IDEA. But, why does it have to be during the school year? Kids have alllllll summer off. We can’t bring them in then? I’d love to skip the cost of a sitter and bring them in. Plus, they won’t miss the school & sports stuff that is happening this time of year.
I will agree that if Mom or Dad is a teacher there should be an exception. But, 99 % of the kids who have parents who work are not teachers. Don’t quote me on that percentage… I’m making this crap up as I type.
Another issue… I’d like all of the companies who have special stuff for the kids to do… TO STOP DOING THAT !! I am sick of hearing how BLANK company had a brunch and a merry go round for the kids to entertain them. DO YOU HAVE A MERRY GO ROUND IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR OFFICE? We do not. So, my kids are not interested in coming to my work.
I think the kiddos need to see the real stuff. Sometimes, it’s boring. Sometimes we have to stay late. Meetings are boring. Charts, graphs, expense reports ARE BORING. I’d love to for them to see me get yelled at by my Boss. If we deliver a LEGO fueled fun day what’s the point??
So, here’s the deal. THE REAL REASON FOR THIS RANT. It’s my kiddos… You see, my kids are jerks. I work at a flippin’ TV STATION. My job is to interview celebrities and eat pizza. My daughter DOES NOT want to come to work with me?? Why? Our vending machines. THEY SUCK. Apparently, the vending machines at the software company where my husband works are amazing. There is YORK peppermint patties and HERSHEY bars … several kinds. We have pretzels and hummus. My kids are not coming to work with me tomorrow. If your kids are – GOOD LUCK.
CHARGE UP THE MERRY GO ROUND. GET A BUCKET FULL OF CANDY. Candidly, I’m jealous. I wish my daughter was interested in coming with me. Some day she’ll see how cool my job can be. On that day I might even walk her over to the CVS to get her all the candy she wants …
