    From personal experience, I can tell you what you are doing is “working hard”. I work for my Mom who is deaf, so I have to tell her when someone is at the door, or when the TTY is ringing. So someone may think I am snoozing but I am actually resting for when a door knock comes and have to find my Mom and let her know, QUICKLY. Same with the phone, sometimes she is upstairs and I gotta be really fast then. We know when we are working or getting ready to work. No one else has to know.

    You guys are doing a GREAT job as floor buffers! The woodwork is so shiny and clean!

    Sometimes hard work is its own reward — with a nap, of course!
