I have a job that is crucial to the bottom line of a local small business. When my wife was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer last March, my employer was right there telling me to take whatever time I needed and they would work with me, they even offered to hire someone temporarily while I dealt with my wifes cancer without me missing a single paycheck or bonus. My wife passed away in October after only 7 months but I will forever be thankful for such great employers. Unless you are the primary caregiver of a termiinal person you have no idea what it entails.

Jeff, I totally agree. I have had to deal with customers who won't stop talking to complete a transaction and it is frustrating, rude and disrespectful. It seems people can't refrain from answering a phone or asking a caller to wait, or call back; that call is more important than whatever current situation they are experiencing. Trust me, from the cash register side, it's hard to resist the temptation to grab the phone from their hands and throw it on the floor!
