If you have a second to click...
« on: July 09, 2006, 09:17:13 PM »
A dear friend of mine has entered a contest at http://www.workingamerica.org/badboss/?appState=listStories&ord=featured .

Her story is "A Dying Mother Is No Excuse" by Selfish Employee, and she's just a wonderful lady, and she's had a very tough year.  If anyone ever deserved to win a vacation, it's this dear friend.

I'm voting every day, but I could sure use some help.

Thanks, you guys.
She's already moved up 4 - 5 points!
I haven't mentioned to her that I'm taking on her cause...but if things take off, I'll certainly give y'all the credit.

wow, what a cold-hearted bitch!  (the boss, not your friend)

I'd like to think that karma will pull a Ken Lay on people like this.

Take care (and good luck to your friend),

Thanks, everyone!

(I am a little concerned, though, because the person that was ahead of her with 339 votes this morning has suddenly disappeared.  Entry deleted.
I wonder what happened?  I hope I don't get her disqualified because I've linked from another website, or something stupid like that.  I don't see anything in the rules...)

Hey Craig....No problem.  And she seems to be doing well too.  I wish her all the luck in the world.

I received this message from my friend today:

Quote
It Was On NPR This Morning!!!

While the website still hasn't announced last week's winner or been updated, my entry was mentioned as the winner on NPR's Marketplace Morning report this morning at 5:50 a.m.! I'm a little concerned that there's still been no mention at the contest webpage but it sounds like I might have made it into the final round.

Sounds like she made it to the finals!  I'll probably hit y'all up for some more votes in a couple of weeks.

Thanks again!
