hee! Geneseo (where I did my undergrad) was a big teaching college, so a lot of my friends are teachers. I wanted to strangle them when after their 10 days off for Christmas, they were moaning for a snow day. And very occasionally I also wish I were a teacher, but then I too think about all the crap that is going on in the public school system right now - huge budget problems here in NY, crappy administration, inclusion, blah blah and I'm so happy to be a planner! Plus, when I feel the urge to throw up at work, I can run to the bathroom without having to get anyone to cover for me to make sure the room doesn't descend into chaos while I'm out.JoshD said:
At times I wish I were a teacher then I rememeber all the headaches that go along with it when dealing with the kids.
I decided at 3PM Thursday that the calendar was clear and I could burn 4 hours of vacationeasily enough... so I'm at home.prudence said:Half day. It's enjoyable, though. The phone rarely rings. A group of us will be stopping by a local gin mill for some libations after work.

We knew we'd get you hooked! Just wait until a morning when cyburbia is down for some strange reason - horrible panicky feelings about "What if it is down FOREVER?"michaelskis said:

Give me the college years again. The years between 18-22 are definitely the time you can have the most fund with the least amount of responsibility.JoshD said:Although I would not mind being 11 again.

UGG I met Pridence and the office gang out for drinks after they were done with work (YES I am now the rigning king of the billiards table!) , then went to last night of bowling, then stayed out till 3am, had breakfast and rolled in as god's flashlight was beginning to peek over the horizon.TexasPlanner said:ah yes, I'm here, just got the call from James he got off at noon today and he's going out for margaritas.
