My 14 year old son is at work with me today.
That’s because today is Take Our Kids to Work™ day, a national program which allows “students to job shadow a parent, relative or volunteer host and to experience first hand some of the career options that will be available to them.”
“Job shadow” of course really means your poor kid will be bored out of his skull sitting in some empty boardroom folding company reports into paper airplanes.
As far as I can tell the only benefit of this program is that it will give high school teachers a day off.
Now if you will excuse me I have to go teach my son some valuable workplace lessons – such as how to write cynical blog entries.
