CONS OF TAKE OUR CHILDREN TO WORK DAY WHICH SHOULD REALLY BE TAKE OUR MOTHERF'N ****DAUGHTERS**** BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE AND ADDING BOYS TO THE MIX TAKES ALL THE MEANING AND SIGNIFICANCE OUT OF IT:

-screaming shorties
-not being able to get any work done
-awkward conversations with coworker's offspring

PROS

-cotton candy and popcorn machines and subsequent cotton candy and popcorn lunch


i find it really hilarious that our agency isn't even making a cursory effort to teach these kids anything about our business.

they've got a moonjump set up in the atrium and a DJ and a helium tank. it's like a kiddie keg party blowout.

fucking righteous take our kids to work day cards on someecards.com

What's awkward about the conversations with coworker's offspring?

But holy shit yeah, sounds like your place is missing the whole point. Jesus.

Awesome cards. AM SENDING OUT TO WHOLE OFFICE NOW.

i remember when it was actually take your daughter to work day, which i thought made sense. of course, by the time they changed it to be gender neutral and i wanted to be an engineer like my parents, i was at boarding school and it lost meaning.

i respect the idea that we're exposing kids to the workplace early, but they aren't getting the knowledge they'd get in school (and some schools make it a free day because so many people are gone anyway) and they aren't really getting perspective on what it means to be an adult in the workforce.

but cotton candy does improve all things.
