Call me Scrooge in a skirt. No, it’s not Christmas that irks (I love it), but an upcoming day on the calendars of workplaces all across the country that must be the stupidest day of the year: Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. It’s ridiculous. Bah humbug.
Why is this event the stupidest day of the year? Let me count the ways, while first acknowledging my own hypocrisy. When this event was a few years old, my daughter was on the early end of the age range it targets. For a couple of years, I took her and a few of her friends to work, not because I thought for a second they would, at the age of 10 or so, discover and embrace a lasting yen for adult work, but because I work in fashion and it would be fun.
