Apparently Intense Debate agrees with you. It has locked me out of Crasstalk.
I'd want to be the childless version.
I love Lucille, and Malory.
Like the good Cap'n said, just let them know you're there for them and to let you know if you can do anything to help. Knowing that there are people that can be relied on is a source of strength for anyone facing a tough time.
I was pissed completely off a few years ago when we had an inclement weather call and my boss at the time called his employees after the message and told me and a few other people that his team was to report to the office. Guess who never showed?
Unless I'm unlocking the doors and/or answering the phones, tasks I haven't performed in years, no one needs me at my desk that badly. The one exception I make in my current job is conference calls with our international offices, which can be at really odd times. I don't have to worry about my bosses not showing up for their bosses.
