I don't know about you, but sometimes I catch myself doing some work off the clock. Sometimes it's just simple stuff from home, no big deal.  But you know how it is, you have to force yourself sometimes to keep work at work and home at home sometimes, right? Right. It's so easy to just say, "Well, I'll do this one thing real quick..."  But we all need that balance, and we need to enforce it, right?

Well, one Sedalia worker has got this whole malarkey figured OUT.  He's got the whole thing perfectly sorted.  Let me tell you all about it.

So we here at the stations have a heating system, of course we do. And sometimes we need that heating and cooling system worked on, updated, and maintained.  In the interest of honesty, I'll tell you place that does it is Premiere Climate Control.  They do a great job, and they advertise with us (in fact, they're our sponsor of our latest cash contest). But they certainly didn't ask me to write about this, and I'm not trying to get them any freebies, okay? Just putting that out there.  This was all kismet.

So the maintenance guy was out here to do his work on our system, and I happened to see his van in our parking lot.  His van is normal at first glance.  But then... have a look at the passenger seat.


Yep. That's a baby. A huge, passenger seat occupying, crying baby in his work van.

You know I had to ask, right? So I waited til it looked like he was in a stopping place, and did just that.  He said he keeps it in his van so that he has an excuse to keep moving.  "When I need to get home or move on to the next job, I just say, 'Sorry, gotta go, my baby's crying in the van....'"

GENIUS.  Genius, I tell you! That's the perfect excuse to just bypass the jibber jabber and get where you need to be, especially if that's home on a Friday afternoon! I had a good laugh about that and thought you would, too.

Cryingly yours,


LOOK: Stunning animal photos from around the world

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom. The forthcoming gallery runs sequentially from air to land to water, and focuses on birds, land mammals, aquatic life, and insects as they work in pairs or groups, or sometimes all on their own.
