Parenting: Who’s birthday is this anyway?

Parenting: Who’s birthday is this anyway?
News from The News-Press:

Pamela Hayford, phayford@swflparentchild.com 10:57 p.m. EDT April 27, 2014

My birthday dinner was hijacked.

At 4:38 p.m., my husband calls me at work. “When are you leaving?” he says. He sounds frantic. He explains that his sister is ready to go and his mother was expecting us at 5:15. It’s news to me — did I not pay attention at some point? I say I can be out of the office in 10 minutes and be home a half hour after that.

I start to shut down my computer. Some colleagues ask a couple of questions and I don’t get out of there in 10 minutes. It’s more like 20.

I start to feel frantic. Then I remember it’s my birthday. They can wait on me.

I realize, too, that the restaurant we’re going to is not my first choice. My mom had sent us gift cards to the chain of restaurants that includes Outback Steakhouse, and somehow everyone assumed we’d go to Outback.

I would prefer to have a plate of steaming crab legs for my…………… continues on The News-Press

How to save Wall Street: Start with better parenting and more Canadians
News from Quartz:

This past February, I retired from finance. Although I intend to continue to study the markets and write about them, I have no intention of ever working in the securities industry again. This makes it easy for me to talk to you about what I think is going on and what needs to be done.

Viva Canada

I worked at Merrill Lynch as a computer consultant in the mid-1980s, and from 1986 through 1992 I was an employee—first doing research and later creating and running trading desks in New York and Japan. After a brief stint at Credit Suisse First Boston in Tokyo, I returned to the US in 1993 to work as a consultant to a couple of large Wall Street firms. In 1995, I built and ran a statistical arbitrage trading desk for the US branch of a medium-sized Canadian securities firm.

In February, at age 61, I retired from that job of 18 years. I can honestly say my time at that Canadian firm was the best of my entire working career and unlike anything I experienced at any other Wall Street firm. At first I could not put my finger on the difference, but at a Christmas party an elderly co-worker from Argentina named Rolando told me he’d been wondering about the same thing. “I have figured it out,” he said, “The word is ‘decen…………… continues on Quartz

This is not a drill: Parenting in the age of school shootings

This is not a drill: Parenting in the age of school shootings
News from World Magazine:

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. – “Attention all students and staff! This is not a drill! We are in lockout. Repeat: We are in lockout!” the intercom screeched at my kids’ high school early Friday afternoon.

My daughter was in chemistry class at the time, slogging through a lab report. Her teacher immediately closed and locked the classroom door, telling concerned students to continue with their work. But a minute later, a classmate jumped up, held up his phone and cried out, “There’s a shooting at Arapahoe High School! Right now!” Everyone scrambled for their phones and tablets to watch the live stream of events happening about 20 miles north of them, the chemistry lab completely forgotten.

Students returning to Castle View High School from off-campus lunch reported having their backpacks searched before they could enter the building. Officials escorted students in groups of 20 to attend class in the mobile classrooms located on the school’s front lawn. Meanwhile at Castle Rock Middle School, also in a lockout, students were instructed to turn off all cell phones and electronic devices.

Making a point to point out the good
News from STLtoday.com:

If a waitress accidentally spilled a glass of water on me during a meal, I imagine I’d be a little annoyed. Even if I knew it was a mistake, I may sigh with exasperation and likely let my impatience show in some way.

Recently, I saw a teenager handle this situation in a remarkable way.

She was sitting with her sister and father at a sushi restaurant, and the server was placing water glasses on the table. One of the glasses knocked over, and the water spilled on the girl’s lap.

It was late on a Saturday afternoon, and the small restaurant was empty except their group and me and my daughter sitting across the way.

Of course, the waitress immediately began apologizing and tried to wipe the girl’s pants. The young lady stood up, patted herself with some napkins and said: “Don’t worry about it. It’s water. It will dry.” She went back to enjoying her lunch with her family. When the server came by later and asked how she was doing, the girl smiled and said: “It’s pretty much dry now.”

Varisa Tsau, 45, moved to the St. Louis area a year and a half ago from Thailand. She’s been working as a waitress and speaks limited English.

“I felt sorry she was so wet,” Tsau told me later. She said that she appreciated that the girl was not angry.

“She said sorry to me, too,” Tsau said.

I approached the girl’s table before leaving and…………… continues on STLtoday.com
