I know you love your kids. Most of you probably even like their company, too. Some of the things they say are hilarious! And I’ll bet there are a couple pictures of them on your desk right now (and on your phone and screensaver and everywhere else). Kids are great, aren’t they?
Mostly. But sometimes they bother you at work for the most ridiculous reasons imaginable. Here are my top 5 dumbest reasons your kids call you at work:
1) Because they can’t figure out how to turn on the TV.
“Seriously? You’ve been using an iPad since you were 5 months old and you can’t figure out which combinations of buttons will turn on a television? Did it ever occur to you to GET OFF THE COUCH AND GO OVER TO THE TV ITSELF?!?!”
2) Because they’re bored.
“Don’t worry son, you have a magical power to prevent boredom….”
3) Because they’re hungry.
“We talked about this last week honey, that’s why God invented pizza rolls and why I buy them in bulk at Costco.”

4) Because they got in a fight with their brother or sister and want you to punish him/her.
“Absolutely! I’ll totally take your word for it. It’s not like you guys have ever lied to me just to get each other in trouble before, have you?”
5) Because they can’t find whatever they’re looking for.
“Did you look in your closet? The kitchen? Downstairs? Oh, you didn’t look downstairs? Well, WHY DON’T YOU GO DO THAT, THEN?”
Kids. If they weren’t so adorable, they’d probably be extinct by now.
