Okay then can they give out free childcare if they are wanting people to fill in those gaps. All i have to say is, if you want me to work, then bring you ass here and watch my 3 year old twins. If not then too bad, so sad!

I'm going back to 911 Dispatch...at 69. Begging me for fill in, wknds...anytime I can...and it's only because I'm needed so bad.
And the more of us are staying at home ..our ER calls tripled.
Been sick, gearing up for March 1st.
If I was needed so much ...I sure as hell wouldn't stay retired....but didn't expect this.
But..here I go....peace JS!
this is actually getting to the point of insanity. due to vaccine mandates the public transit system my father worked for is begging retirees to come back to work. think about that for a minute. is it really wise to try to bring back OLD PEOPLE to drive buses on busy city streets?
