Rhetorical questions (but feel free to answer...)

While I was walking the dogs this morning, one of them paused halfway through to vomit in the middle of the road three times. I may have made her finish the rest of the walk. Does that make me a bad mother?

The Pretend Husband just quit his job and is planning to open his own business. Despite all of the work I'm doing for it, he would agree only to name me "Director of Marketing." I may have traded in some sexual favors in order to be promoted to "Vice President." Does that make me a bad person?

One of the people who works for me, an older man, cannot ever say my name correctly (seriously, he's gotten it correct once in the five years he's worked for me). Let's say my name is KAT [Married Name]-- well, this guy introduced me to a group of high school students this morning as "Chat" [Maiden Name]. I may have interrupted to give my real name and followed up with, "so you're wrong on both counts." Does that make me a bad boss?

No. That simply makes you awesome.

Hey, the dog had to get home some way. And you don't want to pick her up and carry her if she just got done puking. Better the sidewalk than you.

My word ver is "quizing." Missing a "z" but I think it's rather appropriate for this post. Even though it's not a quiz. But you know what I mean.

1. Nah, occasional puking is just a hobby for dogs. I'm sure she would have been more disappointed to have had her walk cut short.

2. Man, I wish I could be a Vice President. I say use what you got to get what you don't got.
; )

3. Maybe a little. But if he's that old, he either didn't hear you anyway, or will have forgotten by tomorrow.

No. That's exactly how I got my title.

The puke and walk is allowed. And no on the bad boss question.

A bad boss would've said. WTF get my damn name right jerk off.

Happy Friday

Dude. What are husbands for if not to exploit their weakness through sexual favors?

I'm sure he's just glad you didn't fellate a *different* CEO for similar gain. ;)
