fake a kid?

A friend sent this link to me a while ago and i just stumbled across it again and i laughed out loud. This is one of the best worst ideas i have ever had the pleasure to see/read about it! how brilliant is this concept!?

create a fake child at work so that you can have all the perks of the moms and dads you work with… epic winning!

it does, however, pose an ethical question (though one may argue that “all is far in love, war …and business,” so ethics isn’t an issue). is a co-workers honesty called into question when they “have to pick up a child from dance class” and manage to get out of a tedious meeting? is a bosses character in jeopardy when he or she must sneak, i mean leave, work early because their child has a runny nose? no  and no! so why can’t i have the perks of child-excuses without the muss and fuss of a child? 

all joking aside, i think this idea is hilarious! i don’t have the guts to do it, but the evil genius who thought of this should be commended! 

p.s. – i really don’t begrudge all the moms and dads out there that have kids issues and therefore must alter their work life, i promise!

    I love this! I think of this every time a fellow employee goes out to smoke – usually once an hour. I don’t begrudge anyone their cigarettes – I just think that I should be able to go stand outside the building for at least 5 minutes every hour….just because I need a break – not because I have to use the bathroom.
