Organizing humor (especially if you have grown children!)

If you are a fan of The Onion’s humor and/or have grown children you must take a moment to enjoy Father Still has Complicated Series of File Folders with Grown Son’s Name on Them. This was shared with me by a client who has two grown children, and we started working together when they were still in high school! We may have found a sports schedule or two from their middle school days mixed in with dishwasher manuals and bank statements. I love it when clients can laugh at themselves. Hopefully you can too with this hilarious piece. The caption to the accompanying image of fictional “Bill” clasping his son’s files had me LOLing:

"Bill Jacobson's ongoing endeavor ensures his adult son will never have to search for his August 8, 1994 parking ticket.”

Click to read in The Onion about “Bill” who "still has in his possession an intricate system of immaculately maintained file folders with the name of his 34-year-old son written on them in black marker."
