The gunshot rang out over an hour prior but the echo could still be heard in their ears all this time later. Axel and his wife Mary-Jo drove in silence ever since they left the pharmacy, this whole time both of them running through the scenario a hundred times over. They had a plan, but they should know by now nothing goes as they planned. Nothing ever has and nothing ever will. Their original plan was to leave the trailer park once Axel was in charge of his father’s car shop, but his father closed the business down once he retired this past year. Something along the lines of he wouldn’t leave his namesake to a burnout. Then the second plan was for Axel to get a well-paying job alongside Mary-Jo’s position at the daycare center. Unfortunately …show more content…
Firstly they stopped off at Axel’s father’s house knowing he was out of town. Letting themselves in they went over to his gun case and broke the glass pane on the front of it. They went on to steal the first two pistols they grabbed out of there and left the house, locking back up again. From there they drove to the nearest sporting goods store and bought two camouflage face masks. The kind the slips over the entire head leaving only an opening for the wearer’s eyes to be seen. They also picked up gloves that matched. Going home they laid out their clothes for the evening. The masks would cover their faces and the gloves would prevent them from leaving fingerprints anywhere. Mary-Jo came up with the idea of wearing sunglasses as well to ensure their eyes would not be seen by any surveillance camera. Axel wrapped their license plate in saran wrap sp that if any traffic camera snapped a picture of their truck departing the flash would blot out their plate leaving them unidentifiable. That night they left the house, pistols loaded and tucked into the jacket pockets of their overcoats. Sharing a kiss before driving off into their new lives they rode in silence the whole way …show more content…
That’s when something went wrong. The old man behind the receptionist window reached beneath the counter and Axel shot immediately. Mary-Jo screamed and the old man slid down the wall behind him, dark nearly blue blood spilling from the hole in his chest. All the women working in the pharmacy panicked and ran out the back exit. They all had phones in their hands filming what was happening. Mary-Jo shouted for Axel to go, but he stood there outside his body in the moment stammering like the buffoon he’s always been told he is. Mary-Jo grabbed his arm and yanked him back into reality as they ran out the front door, hopped in the truck and left leaving tire skids in the parking lot. Another plan failed, they didn’t get the money and all they accomplished was a murder. They’ve been driving at this point for nearly two hours. His pistol sat between them on the console. Recently fired, she could smell the gunpowder in the air. Axel reached over to Mary and placed a hand on her knee. She wanted to shove his hand away, but only managed to contort her face in disgust. She couldn’t tell if she hated him now or if she was just angry. This conflict inside her about him has always come up at some point. She used to say he was a good guy and the odds are just stacked against him, but now she was not
Mary begins the story as a doting housewife going through her daily routine with her husband. She is content to sit in his company silently until he begins a conversation. Everything is going as usual until he goes “ slowly to get himself another drink” while telling Mary to “sit down” (Dahl 1). This shocks Mary as she is used to getting things for him. After downing his second drink, her husband coldly informs her that he is leaving her and the child. This brutal news prompts the first change in Mary, from loving wife to emotionless and detached from everything.
Childcare or “daycare” is one of the most commonly used resources among Americans in the United States. There are many options for childcare that parents could choose from. The cost of childcare has risen dramatically over the past year, and no one really knows who to blame for it. The average cost for one child in a childcare facility ranges from $100-$350 a week. The government offers families subsidies for childcare, but that’s only if your income is low. What about the hard working middle class families that are still struggling to pay the high cost of childcare? How will they provide childcare for their kids?
One of the largest social controversies of the current time are the parental pressures attached to whether or not a child should attend daycare. While many parents struggle with this decision, others do not have the luxury of choice; many questions are raised asking if it is beneficial or harmful for infants and young children to attend daycare, spending the majority of their waking hours with caregivers other than their parents. There are of course many opinions and studies regarding this issue. As with any controversial topic there is no right or wrong answers for the masses. The majority of studies conducted all seem to have similar results. This is an issue and dilemma of such personal magnitude that it should not only be regarded
An onsite Daycare is a place directly located at the employers of parents with toddlers or babies who need full time child care while their parents are at work. It allows the parents the advantage of being close to their children while still being able to maintain stability with their careers.
There’s plenty of meat and stuff in the freezer, and you can have it right here and not even have to move out of the chair’’’ (2). Mary only ever want to please Patrick. She made sure everything was perfect for him and to never do anything wrong. She could not think of anything she had done to deserve such news. She immediately rejected the news and decided to pretend as if it never happened. Patrick was behaving so cruel to her while she was being nothing but nice to him. She even continued to make him dinner and he yelled at her saying not to because he is going out. This angered Mary resulting her to hit him with the leg of lamb and kill him. This shows that Mary is a sympathetic character because she was always compliant to Patrick. He had no right to disrespect her as he did.
Parents across the country are patiently awaiting the first year of freedom, also known as, Kindergarten. In the years leading up to a child’s elementary debut, parents often find themselves paying half their annual salary just so they can get back into the workforce. Why is it that the cost of childcare is so expensive? Most facilities only provide a child with enough shelter to be safe and enough food to curb a growing appetite yet daycare costs can match if not, exceed the monthly costs of living. American adults, who choose to raise families, make the ultimate sacrifice in leaving their small children with strangers just to earn a living so why can’t their employers cover the added expense?
It is common knowledge that a parent is considered the most efficient caregiver for their children. It’s also known that with daily responsibilities of caring for a child financially, parents partake in full-time and/or part-time employment. While needing to do so, many children attend daycare/preschool facilities. Granted, it is the parent’s responsibility to cautiously select where they decide to take their children. This is because parents know that while they are away for numerous hours of the day, their children are in the hands of another care provider and that their care would have an enormous impact on their children. At a young age, a child’s social and cognitive skills are continuing to take shape and the amount of time spent in
When child go through transitions they need people they have built up positive relationships with to help support them through the changes in their lives. We use circle time to explain to the children what is going to happen and they can talk about their feelings children will make a better transition if they know what is going on. We take are cues from the children on how much information is given and how much an explanation is required. We allow time for the information to be processed some children might have delayed reaction and might want to talk later at a quieter time. We are always to be truthful in all our answers so we keep their trust. We listen and acknowledge how the children are feeling and we reassure the children that what they are feeling is normal and other children have been
Little by little, children finish their meals and get ready for naptime. The children dump the remainder of their milk in the same sink where they wash their hands. Slowly children go lie down on their own. One of the TSS’s turns off the lights on that side of the room. Kayla puts on a rest time cd and goes to start cleaning up the kitchen. I ask what kind of music is playing but Kayla is not sure. Alyssa gets blankets for any children who need them. Kayla tells her the children only get their blanket if they are settled down.

Northville, a medium-sized city in the midwestern part of the United States, has experienced a significant change in the composition of its municipal work force of 1,800 employees. Approximately thirty-five percent of the city employees are now female. In a recent survey of city employees, over forty percent have said that "affordable daycare for children" was important to them. Meanwhile Director of the Office of Personnel Mary Lux has become increasingly convinced that the lack of affordable daycare is one of the main
In a regular day to day basis businesses must face a great deal of external and internal forces. Businesses have many different aspects of external and internal forces they must face in order to be successful. External forces, internal forces and trends continually make the pathway for where a business is headed and where a business stands currently. Organizations should do a SWOTT analysis to examine business potential and business risks so that if any action needs to be conducted it can be done before any unwanted events occur within the business (Robinson, Pearce, 2004). United Daycare has several forces and trends that potentially affect the overall business. Nevertheless, in order for any business to function properly the business

When Susannah and her family boarded the ship to investigate it, all of Jeremy’s crew including him were asleep below deck. When the family boarded the ship the crew members awoke to investigate what they were hearing. Susannahs family was steadily looking around the ship when her cousin, Martin came across a room full of money, gold, and weed. As soon as the whole family got in the room, Elwood was right behind them. He went and alerted the crew that they have been discovered. The crew took the family hostage and asked them a simple question, Jeremy asked “ Would you rather fight to keep my belongings, or would you rather let us go ahead and kill you here?” Of course the Martin, which is a outgoing person you could say jumps up and says “ We want to fight for the money and our lives.” Without anyone else saying anything Jeremy said “ Alright we are going to play a little game, one of you gets a assault rifle, one gets a pistol, the other ones get knifes, you get to pick what you want them to use. Go to the other side of the ship, and fire a round into the air when you are ready to fight.” Martin got very nervous then. The family got the guns and went one way while Jeremy’s crew went the other. Martin got the assault rifle, Axel got the pistol, the rest got knifes. Martin fired off a round, so the deathmatch has begun. When it was all over Susannah, and Axel were the only ones remaining. It was a
In today’s society the majority of households have a family dynamic where both parents need to work. It is nearly impossible for most families in America to survive financially without two incomes. This puts many parents in a situation where they have to find extra help to watch their children while they are away at work. “These days couples face complex negotiations over work, family, child care, and housekeeping. It becomes evident that where traditional marriage through the centuries has been a partnership based on mutual dependency, modern marriage demands greater self-sufficiency” (Hekker). Day care becomes a necessity for many families, and the main concern for most parents is if the day care will be a positive experience for their
