Conversations With Riley The Bureaucrat

"Mom, I need some help cleaning my room," Riley announced, clipboard in hand.


"Oh?"


"Yes, do you want to be the janitor?" she asked after consulting her list.

"Uh, no!" I said.

"How about doorman?"

"What else you got?"

"Librarian?" she said, "I've already got 'job-giver' filled..."

"Librarian it is," I said.

  4. I believe that's the Doc the Doorman's job, Dale.

    The doorman duties include: stamping people's hand with a wiener dog stamp if they are authorized to enter and the lightswitch.

    SD: Isn't she though? She later trained us each on our job duties.

  9. I don't think EG needs any help! I'm worried about what he could learn from Riley.

  10. First off, you should be lucky that there WAS another job other than janitor-- this is a tuff economy!!

    Secondly, I so totally approve of the clippy-board.
