Yesterday afternoon I went to remind one of our employees about something that needed to be done.
"Did I hear you say they need it by the middle of next week? Does it have to be done today?" he asked.
"It doesn't have to be done right this minute, but I think it will take a couple hours so please don't put it off until the last minute," I said.
"Good. I'm not up to doing it today. I had to take four Valium and two sleeping pills to get to sleep last night and I feel pretty wrung out."
Needless to say I sent him home and banned him from the carpentry shop for the rest of week.
A half drugged sleepy employee is one thing.
A half drugged sleepy employee with missing fingers is quite another.
Lord have mercy.
And thank you for a long holiday weekend.
