Not Fair and Not My Idea

Friday is a free day
We are off work.
Last year on the first week
My principal volun-told me for an extra duty
and I had an all-day workshop on this Friday

So while everyone else had the whole day off
I was held captive from 8:30 to 3:30
I received a summons on Friday
I was invited to a MANDATORY refresher course
all day this Friday.

I sent back a sweet note
saying if they wanted to appoint another person to this duty
I would gladly back out, but I am unavailable on Friday.
I did not think it was fair, when it was not even my idea.

Weirdly enough
I almost immediately received a missive
saying it was no problem 
Since I had already been trained, I could skip this training.

That's right, Caren. Stand on your two boots and say no. So you got what you wanted. And since I haven't seen your ten poems of the day, I bet you're still fast asleep. Or combing your hair? Or wolfing down breakfast? Or happily composing your poetry? I'm curious for once :) Hugs

I was working at both of my schools yesterday. I was at one by 7:30 a.m. and I left the other one at 7:30 p.m. so when I got home I fell asleep on the couch and did not rouse until 6:25 this morning! Best sleep ever so I guess those 12 hour days are good for me. Thanks for noticing.
