Toddlers in the office

Given some of Miloh's new phrases and thoughts I got thinking what would office life would be like if our minds stayed in the toddler stage, although some people may think that happens anyway.

We'd get emails like this:


From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: I did it

Just wanted you to know that I got to work today and turned on my computer.

Thanks, Miloh



From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: I did it

Just wanted you to know that I closed the door to my office.

Thanks, Miloh




From: Boss
To: All office
Subject: Some praise for Miloh

Hi all, I have some very exciting news today. About ten minutes ago I looked at Miloh and asked "Do you need to go to the potty?" And he said yes. So I put him on the potty and he went.

This is a great day for our whole team. In honor of this milestone we'll be having a celebration with ice cream after nap.

Please stop by his office and congratulate him,
The Boss.

Just wanted everyone to know I went potty today too.




From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: Trucks, Trucks, Trucks

Hey boss, there were trucks outside the office yesterday and they aren't there today. Where did they go?

Thanks, Miloh



From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: My toy

Delilah took my toy.

Thanks, Miloh



From: Boss
To: Miloh
Subject: re: My Toy

It's not your toy. And you have to share.



From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: re: My Toy

But she took my toy. It's my toy. Miloh's.



From: Boss
To: Miloh
Subject: re: My Toy

You have to share.




From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: re: My Toy

Delilah pushed me after I took my toy and pushed her.




From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: re: My Toy

Miloh, It's not your toy. And you get a time out for pushing her.

Hands are not for pushing.





From: Delilah
To: Boss
Subject: Miloh pushed me

Miloh pushed me and took my toy.

Thanks D




From: Boss
To: Delilah
Subject: re: Miloh pushed me

Delilah, First off, it's not your toy. But he got a time out for pushing you. You will get a time out if you push him again.

Hands are not for pushing.

Thanks






From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: I did it

Just wanted you to know that I threw a noodle on the ground at lunch and you picked it up for me.

Thanks, Miloh



From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: re: Trucks, Trucks, Trucks

Hey boss, haven't heard back from you about the trucks. Where did they go?

Thanks, Miloh




From: Boss
To: All office
Subject: Naptime

Everyone go to sleep.




Of course that wouldn't be the end but you get the point. But as I wrote I actually recognize some of these emails from jobs I've had... Which is scary.

  1. I wish we had naptime at my office. I work in a school. Room 215, to be exact. It wouldn't be that weird to put cots in a high school English classroom, would it?

  2. You might want to consider therapy after creating all this.
