When my kids were growing up, it was "Bring Your Daughter to Work Day". My daughter was grown before I reentered the "workforce", but I would have liked to bring my younger sons to see what it was like. Most of my jobs were mind-numbing and emotionally draining. I was worn out by the time I got home.

I have told my sons many times that even if they have to work two jobs, don't under any !$%*!$%*!$%*! allow their wives to work as administrative assistants. AAs have the highest expectations from their bosses, are the lowest rung on the ladder of employees (since maintenance is usually outsourced), are not paid commensurate with the work they do, and are held responsible for everything that goes wrong and little that goes right.

I remember the idea started out as 'Bring Your Daughter To Work Day' so girls would have an understanding of the corporate world and not think it was only for males. The government decided that was discriminatory, so, for federal office, they made it 'Bring Your Children To Work Day'. And I remember kids being numbed into insensibility sitting in a meeting, or listening to a PHB, who actually played to the audience. They wanted to impress the kids. Which is reasonable, I guess, since they certainly were NOT impressing us. Which all sounds like a ...cesspool. Right you are Scott. Once again.
