REALLY Time To Go…

I think I may have found the cause of my blog not wanting to rebuild the main page. It was the “most viewed entries” widget. You may not have seen it because the MT wouldn’t reindex the main page with it included in the sidebar. whoduthunkit.

Anyway, I did manage to squeak in a few minutes this morning. I woke up at around a quarter ’till four and the wife had already been awake for an hour. Pre-flight jitters or just looking forward to the weekend in the Bahamas? I don’t know but I have the prescription for Xanax in my overnight bag. Just as soon as I get cleared of security I’m taking one of those bad boys and as long as I don’t start chasing peruvian midgets through the airport we’ll be alright. If I do by chance see one, I have a call to make (and you know who you are).

I think the girls are looking forward to the weekend. Michelle is coming to look after the house and the girls and provided they don’t whine her to death they will all have a good time. Most likely they will be very good since she’s not their parent. That’s the way that shit works.

I can’t remember if I have mentioned it or not but this they have been planning on re-aligning the districts and their stores. It is a highly feared and anticipated ‘event’. It’s actually been about four years since they changed the stores around other than my promotion and I just picked up the same stores the last guy had. I almost feel as if I have dodged a bullet on this one. One of my managers has been promoted and while I am out of town this week he is running my stores. As of Wednesday he picks up the Mirror Lake store and my slowest store. That’s actually a good deal. I lose money on that one and the manager there is the one that hates my guts. I am keeping my busiest store. That’s the one where the girl is in the hospital. I am somewhat upset because they are most likely going ahead and putting her on leave of absence and putting another manager in there, probably the third district manager, who has been demoted. I am getting the Temple store back and one of the stores just to the west of we. Now all three of my shops are within seven miles of me and they are all money makers. Except for the fact that one of the girls has some serious issues I picked up the best district out of the three. I must have gotten seven phone calls last night about it after the meeting.

Enough about all that crap. I am off work for the next six days now and looking forward to it. Just as soon as I get finished typing I will go shower, shit and shave and start getting ready. Hell, I would leave now if I though I could leave the girls at the school. They would probably frown on two little girls standing outside in the Elementary school parking lot at 5 a.m. though.

So has anyone heard that Greene County is going to start segregating their schools next year? Not by race though, by gender. They will be separating the boys and girls and hope to see a drastic change in test scores as well as teen pregnancies. Here’s a tip you may not have heard. They’re not getting pregnant while they are at school. Doh! I know it’s unheard of but most likely it’s when they are skipping or out doing other things. Not only that but you know what they say about absence making the heart grow fonder. That and the fact that if you tell a teenager they can’t have or do something you are generally creating a reason to go looking for it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a rise in more than the boy’s pants by this time next year as the rate of teenage pregnancies gets higher. Then again, what the fuck do I know, I’m not an edukashun expert like the people making these decisions.

I guess that’s all my ranting for today. Time to start getting ready.

  • I like the latter for starters. I haven’t been able to write on this one as I am unaccustomed to such rage, but one thing is certain, death is too merciful.

  • I agree with that. I may be an asshole and a lot of other things but children are special and should not be fucked with (literally and figuratively ).

  • Hey, this plan could work out for the schools. I think you’re right that it won’t change their behaviors OUTSIDE school, but the guys might spend less time in class showing off and maybe learn something so they can afford to support their baby-making 🙂

  • The wife (she’s a teachers) also said that there is data out there supporting it but the problem is that all of the data collected has been in upper middle class areas or private schools which makes it pretty much invalid since this is a predominantly black lower class area.

    That having been said, it is certainly worth a try. I think that somehow unless parenting is involved and the level of parents participating in their education increases it doesn’t matter what the school district does. That is one thing that is left out of the ‘data’ that my wife was talking about and that the article referred to. Generally upper-middle class and private schools have a much higher level of parental involvement and anytime there is a high level of parents participating in their child’s education, the students are better off.

    Thanks for the link Jennifer. I haven’t had any Internet access since Friday morning so just found out. I took the xanax. It really didn’t do a hell of a lot but may have taken the edge off. I did manage to sleep part of the flight there since I was so worn out but the flight back was supposed to be 1 hr 40 minutes and turned into 7 hours. Not fun but even with the tiny plane we came back on and the shitty weather it didn’t spoil the trip.
