Just me and my shadow

Just a short break from the Natchez trace motorcycle trip (day three; coming soon-stay tuned, next blog) anyway April first, today my son, Myles, was my shadow at work…school project…job shadowing. The morning started early, 7:54am we pulled into my work parking lot. I think Myles found it interesting how the security door works;

a little card in my wallet activates the heavy steal door. Then, once upon entering, you are greeted by yet another steal door with a key punch lock. No, no we don’t make nuclear bombs or anything like that, but I will say all the phone lines that are in the Petal and Hattiesburg area are up in here in one way or another…not a place you would want a Nar-do-well crazed person showing up and start pulling wires. Ha-ha.

He had to keep a record of everything he did each hour, we did a little bit of everything from checking and answering service orders, check my hand held FVD
to making sure the batteries were still good (this is a tool we use to check for power current at poles, pedestals and etc., while in the field) Myles proved to be most excellent at filing, knocking my huge stack of files down in minutes.
Then it was time for the most important task of the day…the coffee break, a 7-up break for him.
(We liked the task so much we did it several times; Shhhh don’t tell the boss) He even got to show me his computer skills and do a little C.A.D. drawing. NEXT…Lunch hour with the wife!!!

Once we returned from lunch I gave Myles the tour of the upstairs, after explaining this would be a bad place for him to start pulling wires…Myles managed to keep his hands to himself, even though I know it was killing him not to push some of the thousands of buttons and pull some of the levers.

As a reward, I let him go up on the roof to see the tower, the building is three stories tall and the tower is on top of it…can you say TALL!!!!

Then I’m sad to say his time was up, a quick call to mom and a farewell to the boss, Myles was on his way home to enjoy the rest of the afternoon (I mean to work on his report, just in case his teacher is reading this. Ha-ha)

Great day with my boy…
