    Found it interesting that I was asked when I was hired "what is a good reason to be out for the day?"  my response recorded was "when i or my children are sick."  I was hired so I wrongly assumed this wasn't an issue.  Then when my two kids, 2 and 3 yrs at the time got the chicken pox together and couldn't go to day care, I was written up and put on probation for having to be out with them for what they felt were too many days in a row.  This included not being eligible for any raise or promotion during the probation.  As a single mom, this was a very costly punishment for me.  

    I ended up moving on, their loss but I was good at my job and missed the customers.  Never thought much of them since then because I feel it showed a lot about them even back then (this was 1995).  Not surprised at all to see the distain the executive would have for the "little people" AT ALL.

    Yes, I am the Queen. Tweet me @QofTU
