Good-bye to July, and Good luck in August! And DON'T admonish me for putting this up early: I need to get to bed early and I won't have time to do this tomorrow, so until somebody invents an affordable timer for the publish button, a blogger has got to do what a blogger has got to do. Duty, and all that....
Petty digression into a job I will not miss:
I'm working from 7am-5:30 tomorrow, but have the option of working an earlier ten hours, if I want to, but I don't want to. One of my coworkers, Bee, is required to work from 5am-3:30pm because of the particular job she does. Bee feels that it's a great injustice that we're not all required to do the same, and I thought about working her schedule, just so that things would seem fair, but then--Ekim talked me out of it, and he's right: it's none of her business what I do. The thing about my hours that has this coworker particularly pissed off is that I will usually get out of working the extra two hours on Friday, since we usually get the work done in time to leave (Friday afternoon is a deadline). Bee thinks that I should spend those last two hours making boxes for next week, and I will certainly ask Workleader about doing that. Workleader, by the way, doesn't give a damn how I choose to work my hours, and she's the one who keeps sending me home on Fridays, instead of keeping me to get a jump on next week's work. Meanwhile, we have people from a neighboring department lining up for our overtime, both before and after their normal shift hours.
Maybe we should pass the hat and buy Bee a life.
