Things Have Changed

My curfew was lighting bugs...

My parents didn't call my cell, they yelled my name...

I played outside, not online...

If I didn't eat what Mom cooked, I didn't eat.

As an employer I can tell you that things have really changed in the workplace. Dedication and work ethic are the most rare commodities any more. There is a strong sense of entitlement to a paycheck no matter one's performance or even attendance. There's lots of reasons for this and one of those is the lack of corporate loyalty which has helped to cause a lack of employee loyalty and other reasons.

The sad truth is that when we look for employees we find we have to kiss a lot of toads to find a prince or two.

Mom, kept a tree "switch" on top of the refrigerator. If the idiot laws we have now, existed back then, She would be getting out of prison about now.

All very true. In our house there were three kids. So Mom put our food on our plates. You ate all of it whatever it might be before you got anymore. All three of us kids had to set at the table until all three of our plates were empty.

Yes the court system today would of had issues with the disciplinary tactic of our parents back then. I know I'm much better in life today for those actions back then.

We played outside and loved it. Parents hollered when were supposed to come in or you knew the timeframe for being home if at a friends. We ate what was served.


At work my employer loves me because I do whatever work is there, I do not pick and choose. I do not call in and will stay almost every time I am asked. I help other employees and will even clean messes on the floor when the happen.


I get real frustrated and verbal with fellow employees who say "It's not my job." Really, you were hired the same as me.


I would like to go back to the old times.

My dad was an MP in the National Guard and he gave my mom a police whistle, if she blew it we had to get home pronto or cut our own switch from the apple tree. If that switch broke before she was done we had to cut another, and then we could have supper. Very seldom if ever were we late when we heard that whistle, and you could hear it from far off.
