Women Issues: What About A Day Without Women
Can you imagine a day without women? I could say a week but that would be more than a disaster, so I will just stop at a day.
A Day Without Women
Little Timmy and his sister would not wake in time for school because their trusted live alarm clock would malfunction. Even if they did manage to wake without their alarm clock, who would get them ready for school? Who would prepare their lunch and drive them to school or to the bus stop? Don’t forget the spouses who are late for work because they have to iron and do other things for themselves today.
What other “nice” things would take place if all women decided to take a seat for one day. Well, for those kids who managed to make it to school, many classrooms would have no teachers and possibly no principal. Apparently most teachers are females – get out of town! Oh wait! What was that, the crossing guard did not show up today? oh dear me.
Can we stay in the schools a little while longer? Okay, it’s lunch time but the cafeteria doors are still closed. I wonder why? Oh yes, the lunch ladies did not make it in today, bummer!
Many companies would be flying on one wing if the women decided to all take a sick day. The offices probably would not be cleaned the night before and the receptionist desk might be unmanned. 47 percent of the total U.S. labor force would be sitting at home catching up on Netflix, sleeping, at the spa or hanging out at the mall with friends they have not seen for quite a while. After all they do deserve a break now and then.
Let’s do better by our women. Happy international women’s day everyone.
