Life Is Just So Daily

Um......

Yeah, I guess my NEW New Year's Resolution will be to get my a$$ to work on time.

57 tardies in 6 months is kind of a lot, right?

It's amazing I still have a job.

In my defense: I have a LOT of driving to do to get to work on time.

I wake up in City X. Then, I drive 16.52 miles to City Y, to drop Gage off with my Mother in Law.
After that, I turn around, hop back on the highway....pass right back through City X on my way to City Z. From City Y to City Z is 42.01 miles.

So, in total, I drive 58.53 miles before I ever even hit the door at work.
So, what does that equal? 57 tardies. Why? Because---I'd be totally fine if it was just me on the road. It's the other idiots & accidents that make me late.

Clearly---it's not my fault, RIGHT?

Ok....maybe 1 or 2 of them were my fault.....

stupid work.

Who counts?

Are you a teacher?

That's the only place I've ever been counted as late..as a teacher..otherwise no one ever knew when I was late.

That sucks.

I think you are supposed to leave earlier in the morning - or quit and stay home and eat bon-bons. I vote for option 2!

It is definitely NOT your fault. Who is EVER on time anyway, and who's counting?

I understand. I have chronic lateness. I am usually 5-10 minutes late to EVERYTHING. One little trick I do is to set all my clocks forward a bit. But you still have to convince your brain that your clock is right.

Ugggh. Being on time is overrated!!

Do you get penalized?

Wow that is a long drive and so not your fault...If everybody would drive and act as if they were sane maybe all of us could get into work on time.
