My friend, a single mother of 2 kids, just told me that one of her kids was diagnosed with a mental illness. She asked if I could be on stand-by to pick up her other child in case of emergency. I said yes.
Since her other child has a complex after-school schedule, she emailed it to me. In the event of an emergency, I can grab the schedule and know where to pick him up. I'd also like to have her cell phone number and some additional info on hand.
So, now I'm holding a sheet of paper that I may not need for days, weeks, or months. But if I do need it, it should be handy (no shuffling papers, searching through files, etc). I'm thinking it should not be electronically stored, in case I'm not at my computer when she calls. But I don't want it cluttering up my purse/briefcase all the time. I'm perplexed where to put it. Maybe my car glove compartment?
Do other people have papers like this? Where do they go in your system?
