sometimes i behave like a kid with dirty underwear

a small child i know, who shall remain unnamed, had a habit for a while of hiding his dirty underwear in the back of his closet.  perhaps with the not unfounded logic - out of site, out of mind.  if mom doesn't find these underwear, then she won't know i had an accident. makes sense, doesn't it?

i recently tried that with an FMLA form.  seems i just sort of slipped it into the chart, as blank as the day it was born, and let it get refiled. i should have known it wouldn't work.  the FMLA is a savvy mom, it knows to look in the back of the closet for your little secrets.  guess i'll be filling it out now...


  1. Thank you for filling it out. I know they are a pain, but our employers practically require that we have them filled out. Believe me, it's painful for us to have to ask for them. We'd like to throw them in the back of the closet too. Actually, mine is in the trunk of my car.

  2. Darn how I have to find a new place for mine
