For those of you that don't know, I recently (well about 7 weeks ago) took a position working for my father-in-law (here on out- FIL). Today, he comes up to my desk and throws a piece of paper down and says "give me $5". Ummm...what? What the hell is this? He informs me that it's the bracket for March Madness. Apparently, each year the office does a pool to see who can get the most correct answers on the bracket. I politely tell him no after laughing at him for even thinking this is something I would want to do. My luck is horrible and I know nothing about basketball. He says that the girls in the office always win and for me not to be worried. I'm then like "ummm...John, if I do this, I'm just going to look up the team colors and decide who I like better". He walks away.
Not even 5 minutes later he comes back and says, Josh took 2 brackets. Are you freakin' kidding me?! LOL- Thanks Josh, now I have no clue what I'm doing! I don't have a problem paying $5 a week for the race pool. I know exactly who races and I know what I'm getting myself into with that. Basketball? Not so much....
So, who wants to help? I'll take any advice I can get. I'll promise to love you forever and ever!
And... for those of you interested, I now work with Josh, FIL and my mother-in-law. I see FIL everyday, Josh works in another part of the building and MIL only comes in the office a couple of times a week. It really has helped me and FIL's relationship. We are finally starting to communicate. I'm very pleased with the position and I think we will all be just fine and won't kill each other.
