Random Thoughts on Thursday6:30 AM
* Tracey posted about these strawberry scones a couple of weeks ago and I've been dying to try them. As fast as C eats the strawberries from our yard I had to buy some. They were on sale this week so I finally got around to baking some yesterday. Dee-lish.
* I used to work for a home care agency taking care of elderly and disabled clients. I worked full time while I was in grad school and then part time when I got a full time job. I've worked as a certified nurses aide on and off since the mid 90's. A company I used to work for open a branch not too far from my house so I thought I would apply to work part time. I love my current job, but in order for it to be worth my while and drive to the airport, I need to be gone all day. So I thought if I worked as a CNA on a part time basis I could make a little extra cash to pay that irritating IRS bill and I could still be home with my family. I talked with the person who does the scheduling and she said absolutely she could work with my schedule. I filled out all of the hiring paperwork and scheduled orientation.
Imagine my surprise and bewilderment when I showed up on Tuesday for orientation and they told me that I failed the online integrity test. WHAT? I thought it was a rather insulting test when I took it. Every other question (and there were 90 of them) asked how often did I abuse my clients and how often did I do drugs. "how often do you hit people?" "how often do you smoke pot?" "when was the last time you abused a client?" "when was the last time you snorted coke?" I answered truthfully because I don't do drugs (hello random drug tests!) and I would never abuse a client. I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry at the absurdity of it all. The office people claimed it was a very scientific test but I'm questioning the validity of it.
So needless to say, I'll be working at the airport more this summer!
* The roses are blooming and every time we go the driveway, C has to stop and smell the roses! I've taught her well!
Happy Thursday my friends!
