I received a memo written in highlighter and crayon (and smeared with peanut butter) from the guy in charge of crafting and chaos which said the tutorial will take place on Friday after his nap. This is barring any meltdowns, tantrums or general crankiness that he may have on that day. He was very explicit about not being able to guarantee or be responsible for any of his behavior. He politely explained that a breakfast of Froot Loop and chocolate milk may get him off to a happy start. (although, I heard through the grapevine that HIS senior supervisor said absolutely not. It would be the usual oatmeal and bananas.)
As he outlined his demands for the day which included endless bowls of goldfish (the colored kind), juice boxes on ice, nap breaks whenever the mood struck and full creative control over the design of the crown (ONLY Thomas the Train would be approved), I couldn't help but think he was appearing very familiar to me....... as if I had worked with these same sets of childish requests and general nonsense before.
Then it hit me like a ton of Lego's.........This was the same guy the Temp agency sent over to help me with the last two giveaways! Apparently upper management never listened to my complaints about him playing with his trains when he was supposed to be picking names and had hired him on permanently.....and, to add insult to injury, with a title and his own office. I have no idea how he managed to work his way up the ladder given that he doesn't even speak full sentences yet. However, he must have razzle dazzled someone at corporate.
Anyway, I have no other choice than to cooperate with him and do my very best to bring a crown tutorial to everyone despite having to work with someone who wears Higglytown Heroes pajamas to the office. I told him that no matter what he says we were still going to serve margaritas..........I think we're going to need it!
