Friday was an emotional roller coaster ride … or was/is that my PMS?
Well anyways … I got my check Friday, and surprise surprise! (well, not really) I was shorted a few hours AND my overtime was not time and a half pay. For a while I had not been claiming all of my time if it was little insignificant stuff like research, routine server maintenance, quick fixes, etc. all stuff done from home. That stops now. I’m tired of being nice and getting the ole ramrod routine for it.
Don’t get me wrong … these people are nice, and they are very flexible (usually) when it comes to needing time off for Jessie’s school things, and stuff like that. But when it comes to getting paid: if you’re not in the family, good luck. :roll:
On to other things … we caught Episode III: Revenge of the Sith at the Amstar in Alabaster. Pretty good, but I couldn’t help but feel DEPRESSED when leaving the theater.
Wait, I already posted on this … I swear I’m going senile …
Let’s see … Saturday I had a “mega headache from Hades” so I didn’t do a whole lot. Jessie came over late that afternoon and Jim went off with some friends, so Jessie and I vegged out on the couch and watched movies.
She had been invited to a birthday party held yesterday for one of her classmates … at Chuck E. Cheese. My GOD the amount of kids there!! LOL It was a madhouse. I honestly don’t see how anyone working there manages to keep their sanity, but the staff were very helpful and the lady who held the party said that C.E.C. did everything for her: setting the table, getting drinks, passing out kids’ tokens & prizes, getting food & cake, etc. I was really impressed. We had been thinking about doing something similar for Jessie for her birthday … after all, that’s *only* her favorite place on the planet. ;)
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm … I smell hamburgers! (We’re having a “company bonding” day here at work, the owners are grilling hamburgers for everyone.)
*grins* I grossed out the Sales manager by walking in and inspecting the hamburgers and said “Oh YUM! Charred animal carcasses!”
(hehehehe, some people are just too fun to leave alone.)
