    Ok, my dearest old friend sent me a link to a you tube video.  I’m going to try to make it work here.

    See if you can spot me in it.

  • Common Sense is Stone-Cold Dead!

    Posted on Thursday, January 16, 2014

    I’ve been writing this blog in my head all day.  But.... when I leave work, my brain tends to shut off.  I don’t remember half of what I wanted to say.

    I rant and rave about common sense and the lack thereof at work quite often.  Mostly when I leave work, I can leave that kind of craziness behind me.

    Yesterday afternoon I met a young man who had recently moved to town because the small town he is from has no job opportunities.  I know that to be true because I work with a couple people from that town.

    He was trying to convince me what a hard worker he is.  And yet..... he had gotten a job cooking at the golf course... and quit the job.  Not because the pay was bad, or the boss was awful.  He quit because it was too far to walk to work.  

    I was mind boggled.  Yes, when the wind chill is -25, three miles might be too far to walk to work.  But... The town where I work has a great transit system.  If you call 24 hrs ahead of time, a ride anywhere in town only costs $2.50.  That’s $5 a day to get to work and back.  I wish I could get to work for so little money!!!!!!!  And a punch card for the week is only $20.  

    Am I missing something?  How is being unemployed better than taking $20 out of your paycheck to get to work?  

    We have a deadbeat at work who is just as bad.  He didn’t show up till noon one day.  We asked him why.  He couldn’t find a ride.  Instead of calling  the transit and spending the little bit of money on a ride, he missed out on 4 hours pay.  Where is the sense in that?????????  

    Another kid couldn’t make it to work one day because “the weather is too bad.”  He lives four miles out of town.  Right near our secretary who made it to work.  Thirty four miles closer to work than I live!  And I made it to work.  What is wrong with these people????
