Well, I am doing a really good job. I scared squirrels no less than four times today. I was fierce. I aroooo' ed and rushed those pesky little buggers! And, they scampered away.
|Here is the male squirrel who likes to taunt me!|
The problem between my boss and me seems to be that I don't like to get up early in the morning. It is close to the Winter Solstice so dawn is about 7:30 a.m. I much prefer sleeping in until 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. Sure, I miss a couple of squirrel attacks on the bird feeder but... look.... I more than make up for it!
I've been told that I am in my probationary period and that I can be fired "at will" from my job. But I would propose that I am MORE THAN DOING MY JOB! Let me provide you with some evidence.
|Here I am "aroooing" and scaring not only the squirrels but the neighbors.|
See how I go over and above my job description?
So to make up for it, and go above and beyond, I stand guard at night. I look out the sliding glass window just in case a squirrel wakes up, leaves their cozy nest and heads toward my yard for a bird food snack. I work really hard by staying up late!
|Proof positive that I work well past sunset!|
You can tell I am making my case just in case I am fired for not doing the job exactly as "others" think I should do it!
I guess it's time for bed. I need my 15 hour beauty sleep.
