Left work early Monday - sick. Called in sick again Tuesday. Got called into the office today when she showed up.
Promotion and raise to take over someone leaving. About time she got a break. Working 1.5 jobs now to make ends meet. Proud of our girl.

Maybe. Sometimes you have to push the envelope to drive the point home, though.
I threatened my 17-year-old son with a spanking last night. That would be the first time in almost 11 years that something like that has happened. He changed his tune rather quickly as he knew I wasn't making an idle threat.
Sounds like W/G and the roommate need a spanking.

A few weeks ago, an elderly lady (one of the regulars, ~90 years old) was going through the self-checkout line, when she discovered that she forgot to grab a box of Zesta crackers.
She asked the cashier if he could get her a box. Apparently, the self-checkout area was pretty busy at the time, but the cashier immediately went to get the Zestas this customer asked for, while a coworker took over the self-checkout area.
Upon returning, this customer thanked the cashier profusely, and the cashier told her "you're welcome", but the customer then dropped a bombshell of sorts:
She quietly tells the cashier that she's actually quite iil, with Stage 4 lung cancer, and that Zestas are about the only solid food she can keep down, due to her chemo.
Cashier helps her finish ringing up her groceries, and (while a coworker is minding things), he helps this customer out to her car and loads her groceries.
Customer thanks him again, and cashier says, "you're welcome, and I hope you feel better soon."
Two weeks later, the cashier learns that the customer wrote a very nice letter to the cashier's management, praising the cashier and his kindness, and the management not only sent their own letter of praise to the cashier, but also a copy of the customer's original letter.
A few salient details to give this story better context:
- The management in question (whom the customer wrote to) wasn't the store manager, or even the regional manager, but the CEO of the entire store chain.
- The CEO in question: one Mr. Rodney McMullen, the CEO of Kroger's. Yes, that Kroger's.
- The cashier in question: my son.
We first learned of this last night, after our son got home from work (he found out shortly before his shift ended).
Upon hearing his story and reading the CEO's and customer's letters, my wife said: "Now the CEO of Kroger's knows I raised my son right." Damn right he does.
Just wanted to share.
