    Talk about a role reversal!

    Seriously. Last night I had to do something I don't like doing at all - I had to go through the list of who had the day off and call employees on their time off to ask them to cover. One of those that I called - a very young Gen Z'er - started lecturing me about the evils of capitalism and it was so so so surreal for me as I agree with most of what they were saying - but that still does not get coverage. I can go out on the floor and cover as best I can but I can't be there non-stop.

    I wonder if this situation is somehow karma but I can't figure out what I did to deserve it. Whatever. I did get someone to come in for a few hours and I was able to cover the rest. My point is that for me of all people - this was just surreal. Rob

    Karma, baby! It is a bitch.

    But seriously, self awareness of our own foibles can somewhat mitigate guilt. It makes us human and reminds us that we are imperfect creatures.
    I am not a serious person.
