Pooh Hodges, the cat I am a typist for, is guest posting here today. He thought his article, Take Care of The Bottom Line, was more important than the story I am writing on the meaning of prudence. Pooh writes about his world from the perspective of a cat. He is, after all, a cat. Please welcome Pooh Hodges.
I am delighted to be guest posting today at Mrs. Hodges blog, i paint i write. I think she must be tired from painting black lines on long underwear yesterday. She really shouldn’t leave her projects until the last-minute. It is a bad habit.
Take Care of The Bottom Line
Are you the head of your company? Are you responsible for several employees? Do you have 10 employees? 100? 1,000? 30,000?
You have to manage production, output, people, salaries, inventory and taxes. You need to care of the bottom line. Well, your bottom line is not just a dollar amount.
Your bottom line is really a bottom issue. What kind of toilet paper does your staff wipe their bottoms with? What kind of toilet paper do you buy? What paper is in the bathroom stall in your company restrooms?
Do you buy quilted comfort, or the thinnest and cheapest paper you can find on the market?
As the CEO of my company I see the need to take care of my staff and my employees. My employees are three kittens, Charlie, J.R. and Nepeta. Charlie , the Vice-President, is Head Of Human Relations, and Manager of Proper Dishwasher Loading Techniques. The twins, J.R. and Nepeta are in charge of warming laps and tangling yarn.
My staff is the Hodges family. They work directly for me. Mrs. Hodges is my typist, and is responsible for grocery shopping. I will introduce the rest of my staff another day. Lets just say, they need me to take care of them.
Some of my staff have been complaining about the toilet paper we stock . It is good for the sewer system, as it dissolves quickly, but it is not good for the bottom line. It is not soft. At the manager’s meeting this morning, I will tell Mrs. Hodges to buy softer toilet paper.
I only buy the best quality cat litter for my employees. We have seven litter boxes, so the cost of cat litter is rather high. I will not sacrifice the quality of my litter to save a few pennies.
Mrs. Hodges has been instructed to buy only clumping litter. We have tried several brands of litter, but the kittens and I prefer Fresh Step Premium, Scoopable, Unscented, Clumping Cat Litter . The carbon in the litter eliminates urine and feces odor.
And you? What kind of toilet paper is in your bathroom? What kind of litter to you buy for your CEO? That is if you are fortunate enough to have a cat run your life.
Disclosure: The cat litter is an affiliate link. If you order your litter here, it won’t cost you anymore, but the few pennies Amazon pays me helps to pay for kitty litter. We do, after all, have seven litter boxes.
