My coworker’s dumped some work on my other coworker’s desk so she can be on maternity leave. Why does she get rewarded 12 weeks paid leave for crapping out another child? What I really mean is why doesn’t my non-babied coworker get rewarded for not having a child? Shouldn’t she get some environmental award for not overpopulating the Earth?
Where’s my fraternity leave where I get 12 weeks paid vacation to go get drunk in Mexico?
(I’m good with people getting the time off, I personally think Americans need a lot more time away from work. I just think my other coworker who’s dealt the extra work and has consciously decided never to have children should be rewarded the same vacation time as a thank you for not creating little polluters/resource-wasters. One created two babies and got time off, the other worked six months extra. Side bar: It blows my mind how over-population isn’t even a topic of discussion, especially as we exponentially increase our consumption of finite resources.)
