This is what Mrs. Peeps always asks me: Are you helping or are you hindering? As in, am I part of the solution or part of the problem -- or am I just a general pain in the arse?
I think I am always very helpful. Today, for example, Mrs. Peeps was waaaaaay behind in the homework for her leadership class. This is partly due to Grandma Mrs. Peep's visit - she is highly distracting and a very bad influence! But mostly it is due to the fact that Mrs. Peeps is a high-level, grade-A procrastinator. Whatever. In any event, you can see here that I was a BIG help as I sat here thinking about leadership development theory.
However, if perception is reality, then, according to Mrs. Peeps anyway, I was NOT as big a help as I thought. Mrs. Peeps was a little ticked with me today and kept removing me from her paperwork. As you can see, she finally devised a brilliant strategy which kept both of us happy.
Not helping, but not hindering. Hallelujah! The homework is done!
