But the true meaning of Take Your Kids to Work Day seems to have gotten lost over the last two decades— that fantasies are for kids...
Cowboys make crap money, little Jimmy. Ninjas have lousy 401Ks. Good luck with your Princess dream, little Susie; Camilla’s got that gig sewn up. Get real. Get serious. What’re you, ten? Chase that dream ‘til you’re blue in the face, kiddies... but do it on your own time!
Sitting in the corner of mommy or daddy’s cube, you’ll see for yourself why they like cocktails so much. Watching them return countless emails, suck up to the boss, or try and stay awake in endless meetings, Give Your Kids a Good Cold Slap Day is a priceless experience that offers children a peek 50, 60 years into their future. That is, if they aren’t laid off when they turn 40.
So pay attention little ones, Take Your Kids to Work Day is just the first day of the rest of your so-called life.
