I'm going to shackle my kids to their cubicles for 9 hours, close my office door, and screw around on Fark all day.

Nothing.  This is a kid-free zone.

That's an interesting work around for those pesky child labor laws.
 
2018-04-23 11:41:40 AM  
The nice thing is they don't specify it has to be MY work.

Don't know yet.  Probably working from home so that makes it easy.  She can sit in on some conference calls I guess?

Urban combat training. If simulated landmine explosions and the smell of burning flesh don't make them want to get back to kindergarten ASAP, I don't know what will.

My state has a walkout planned this Thursday for teacher salaries...

So...

Not a clue what's happening this week.

Yea, I work in a casino.  Not many minors here.

Someone screwed the pooch at my company and scheduled all the kid events for last Thursday.

It sucks because my kid's school tends to be pretty empty on take your kid to work day, so the teachers don't assign much. But instead, he missed a real day of school (it's elementary school, so not a huge deal, but still).

My younger kid had to choose between a field trip to the zoo, or go to work with me. He chose my work, the poor kid.

My favorite job was the one where there allowed people to bring their dogs any day of the week but wouldn't participate in 'bring your kids to work day' because the kids were a distraction and needed to be entertained all day.  Also, one of the HR managers said in a meeting about it - "this isn't a daycare" - when one of the people asked to bring her daughter in for the day.
 
2018-04-23 12:08:52 PM  
I'm chaperoning a field trip that day.

I'm on long term disabley maybe take her to physio, neurologist, grocery shopping & blood test if I don't do it earlier in the week

I see child sized body bags and a trip to Baltimore this Thursday.

j/k
It's against the law to haul live people in a body van.

also, no kids

Scouring out the vats where caustic chemicals are stored.
 
2018-04-23 12:31:44 PM  
My kids are both talking GMAS testing this week, I'm sure they would rather watch me do nothing like I normally do during your with day.
 
2018-04-23 12:37:12 PM  
That's got to take all the fun out of the brothels.
 
2018-04-23 12:39:01 PM  
I used to work at GEICO (Fredericksburg office) and I hated " bring your brat to work" day. A few hours would be ok but an insurance office is NOT high on a kid's interest.

I work at home, so I'll be bringing other people's kids to work. That way it's not abduction.

I thought the White House declared every day 'take your child to work day'.

My only kid is now 19 and she's finishing up her sophomore year at a large university that is not local, after which she's doing a summer internship (paid, fortunately) in finance in the Silicon Valley. I don't think I'll be bringing her to work that day. Hell, I'd be more interested in checking out her new workplace.

I don't think much work is getting done there.

I'm holding a workshop on creative swearing.

/or nothing, I don't have kids.
 
2018-04-23 01:17:58 PM  
It is my understanding that there will be a snack of juice, string cheese, and fruit slices for the crotch droppings that come to my office. That's a pretty solid snack.

Homeland Security is on the first floor.  I'm going to get mine waterboarded.

Teach those little farkers to stonewall me on who broke the lamp!

But for realz, I am happily childless.  However, here is our schedule.  And we're bringing in Chick-fil-a for lunch.

Schedule:

09:00-10:00 - Office Tour with Parent. (attached is a simple scavenger hunt for the kids to use to find a few locations in the office, have them check off the spot when they find it and hold on to it and they can turn it in for some swag.)
10:00-10:30 - Ask the Parents Session in front  the breakroom
10:30-11:30-  Outside Activity - parents of the younger ones are encouraged to join in
11:30-12:30- Lunch with Parents in Main/Firefox
12:30-01:00- Technical Writing Session with Virginia - Airplane Activity
01:00-01:30- Session TBD
01:30- end of day- Kids with Parents but will have a movie/Coloring in Apache if they get bored 😊

My kid is an intern over the summer.  She does all the desktop support crap I don't want to bother with.

If you still use a term like "crotch droppings," then I'm pretty sure the maturity level of most of the kids enjoying those fruit slices is likely to exceed yours.

Yeah, I think they are good to do a'bring an adult to work day' if they can find one that's sober enough

Bring your daughter to work day is the perfect time to have her tested...

I probably shouldn't pass out condoms this time.

I work at the school that my son attends. Does he come with me or do I go with him?

IIRC, the preferred nomenclature is "Linoleum Lizard".
