    But most of the time you get told to do it over again.

    That’s right, but what is it, when you want to do your job and you like your job and you are not able to do it better!?

    Calvin, since today is Saturday, you’ll have plenty of time to do it again.

    or, don’t shovel it, let nature take of it. or, don’t shovel it, use chemicals to melt away the snow and ice. or, move to a warmer location like guam.

    My husband thinks this works. He’ll eventually figure out that it’s a lot easier to just do it right, which he IS able to do.

    Sometimes you get ordered to do it over and over until you get it right.

    You just didn’t do a bad enough job of it to make them believe you’d never get it right.

    Seems to me you could use your leaf blower if you do it early enough while it’s still coming down and not let it land on your walkway in the first place.. Always wanted to try that.——never did….Hummmm

    When I was about 12, I deliberately tried to get out of drying dishes by putting the siverware any ol’ place. But my mother threatened to make me wash and dry the dishes if I did that again.

    Calvin: 6 years old and already he knows (or at least thinks he knows) how to “game the system” to his advantage regarding his chores! ;-)

    If there were a snow shoveling event in the Winter Olympics, Calvin would be a Gold medalist, not to mention in the snowmen making event….

    He went to a lot more work than if he had done it right. Now, once he shovels over to the driveway and gets the piles out of the way, he’ll be done.

    One time my dad asked my brother to fold his laundry, and my brother folded it so badly that it had wrinkles, and my dad said he’s never folding his laundry again.
