Full-Time Mom ‘Looking to Go Part-Time’

INDIANAPOLIS – Full-time mother of three, Stephanie Grantham, 22, has indicated to friends and relatives that she is about to go part-time in an effort to advance her dwindling social life.

Miss Grantham, who has spent 5 years managing her children’s daily lives on a rolling seven day week, says she is looking to reduce her hours so that she can spend more time concentrating on shopping, hanging out with friends and consuming alcohol.

“I’m totally being shafted over with the hours I’m working,” said the Indianapolis resident, knocking back a double gin and tonic. “Can you believe I’ve not had a day off in two years? Raising three little kids is a very demanding job, and from the very start I never imagined I’d still be going full time after five years.”

“I’m just hoping I can get on the 11:00 to 1:30 schedule.”

Meanwhile, Miss Grantham says that, as well as cutting down her maternal responsibilities, she is desperately hoping to get Saturdays and Sundays off, primarily so that she can get trashed and watch game shows with her best friend Angela.
