My Day Off

I am a bad bad person. Today I did not at all feel like going to work or taking H. to school (off on the other side of town) so I told him that he was sick and that we would stay home instead.

So instead of getting up at 6:23 and taking the 7:30 underground, I got up at 9:00 and sat around in my underwear all morning. Mmmm…nice. The best thing is I will register this as a “looking after a sick kid” day and get paid from the state. If I called in a normal sick day for myself, I would get paid nothing at all, but if its a sick kid, then no problem.

This is known as “abusing the system”. I don’t do it very often, but let me tell you, it’s very very nice. It lets me catch up on my sleep and reduces H’s exposure to all those nasty kid diseases floating about just now. Also it allows to play Playstation games and get paid for it. And who said the socialist nanny state was dead..?

  1. Well now Mr. Hayden…perhaps you are not aware that when you leave a comment your IP number is logged, and I can take it and find out where you are.

    In this case, the IP-lookup service says you are here:
    1275 York Avenue, NY 10021, USA

    Hmmm….I think I smell a rat…

  2. In this case the IP-lookup service says blah blah blah blah
