Need to Skip Work? Then You Need to get Some Kids!

I used to work with this guy that would leave early on Fridays. He was a complete slacker. While the rest of us busted our humps to get resumes to clients, he’d belly up to the bar across the street. His excuse? Kids! And, he had a gaggle of them too.

Businesses lose $1.4 Billion Dollars annually to employee absenteeism due to childcare problems.

Now that I have a kid and one on the way, I get a free hall pass. Woohoo!

But, what about you buddy? You don’t have any kids, at least not yet.

So, here is what you need to do. Get yourself hooked up with The Office Kid. It’s the complete package and the only way to go for that childless recruiter that needs some extra time away from the office.

The Office Kid has pictures, art work and all the necessary tools for you to use get out of that big ass boring meeting you have every Friday after lunch.

Start living again with The Office Kid. No Excuses!

Oh! We had this conversation a while back over on recruiting.com and I'll be damned but the string has vanished along with any cached version of it on the Internet - I'd like to know how THAT happened.

Anyhoo, I used to visit it periodically to enjoy how the slap in the face being called the c* word felt for voicing my opinion on the matter. No secret here I long ago grew tired of those who used their kids as excuses for not getting work done/leaving early/coming to work late. It's a laundry list I keep - don't ask.

Animal even posted on the event here. As noted before, the link Animal provides in the posting to the original recruiting.com firefight no longer works. Like Animal said, John Sumser said it took us to new lows. Maybe we could recreate it here. That would be fun. If whoever you were who only posted under your first name last time sees this and wants to take another swipe at me - g' ahead. We'll see if we can't get this subject put to bed.
