    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    That is the voice of MOM. I have it, my sisters have it and every woman I know who has a mom who laid down the rules and enforced them, has it. Sometimes it’s quiet for a long time and then you hear, “Sit up straight” or “it’s doesn’t, not don’t” (I get that one when hubby uses “don’t” inappropriately, which is all the time). I guess kids who grew up with parents that wanted to be their “friends”, don’t have that, but I wouldn’t give it up for the world.

    i think it’s an editorial on how much time people spend on their devices, wasn;t it just last week she was “interfacing” with her neighbors live face to face. of course this from the guy who has one iPhone joke after another in the strip.

    I still have Dad-in-my-head and since he was my first boss I hear him a lot at work


    A while back our District Manager was in the store and complimented me on how I kept my department


    I told him my Dad had taught me the work ethic I follow and the bottom line was that I have always worked every job as if Dad was still my boss


    Store managers and district managers come and go, but dad will always be with me and pleasing him is more important than pleasing them


    His standards were higher, management is always pleased

    My father was much the same, although he was never my “official” boss. I once had a part-time job as “Night Porter” (Janitor) and one of my jobs was to strip and wax the office floors. After the very first time I did that job, the bosses were agog at how good the floors looked. They even called the “home office” to come look at them! I was scratching my head trying to figure out what all the hubbub was about. I just did it like they showed me. I finally came to the conclusion that, because of the work ethic instilled into me by my father, I didn’t even consider slacking on the work and not doing the job right.

    …thankfully, my parents are both still with us physically, as well as being those “voices in my head…”
    They don’t use the old voices anywhere near as much as they used to – either they did their jobs well, and it’s not necessary anymore, or we were just too much for them, and they gave up in exhaustion (there are 9 of us)….
