Why everyone should hire a single mom.

by mssinglemama on June 6, 2008

We write hilarious e-mails when we’re running late.

Benjamin woke up three times last night … so we both slept in. When I woke up at 8:20 (an hour later than usual) I stumbled to my computer and sent this e-mail to my co-workers:

Subject Line: Rough Night

Benjamin was up often, slept in a bed so that I’m not a walking zombine. I am running late.

I meant to say, “Benjamin was up often, slept in a bit so that I’m not a walking zombie. I am running late.”

Either way it’s still a retarded e-mail. When I finally got in they were still chuckling.

I think you should write a serious post on the benefits of hiring single mothers, because this one seems to speak the opposite.

Thanks for the suggestion … but I won’t be writing that one. In my experience, what makes a good employee has nothing to do with one’s marital status.

benjamin was up often

slept in a bed

so that i’m not a walking

i am running late
