Odd mental tradeoffs…

OK, so I am sick, have a fever, and am on Nyquil ๐Ÿ™‚ – still, this isn’t an unusual mental conversation for me to have with myself:

It’s very stormy out – sleet and hail, and very windy.ย  My daughter is at a school event until 11, when she will get a ride home from one of her friends.

I don’t know how good of a driver this friend is, so I think, maybe I should have my son go pick her up – he’s a good driver.

And my next thought is, “Don’t put all of your kids out in the storm if you don’t have to!ย  Why risk them both?”

I think there might be a business lesson in there somewhere, but I’m in no shape to dig it out just now ๐Ÿ™‚

I am *really* bad at being sick.

    @Jon – I worked for a company that had those rules – was kind of sucky that you couldn’t spend the flight with your co-worker!

  2. Ha! That’s like some company policies where the top 2-5 guys can’t all ride in the same plane in case of a crash!
