My awesome neighbor and I were talking about the county's decision to create more furlough time in the upcoming year to make the budget work. He put it best when he said, "I tried to mail my furlough time to Duke Energy, but for some reason they didn't want it." He said it so matter-of-fact that I busted out laughing. I then added it that at least he got to use his time even if he didn't want it. Last year they had a lot of restrictions for teachers when we were "exchanged" 10 hours of time...we could only use on non-student days, between a four month time span, etc. Here's the sneaky part-there was only ONE work day that fit all the requirements and it was the only day before report cards. AND even if you used your time you could only use six hours. Not cool rule makers, not cool. However cool/fun neighbors are where it's at.
