You see, I don't really care about overtime. I don't really want to work 12 hours a day, 5 days a week, but I did that for a long, long time in the past and yes, I could eventually get used to it again - and the larger paychecks.
I came back to the yard today to find a - lot - of stuff to do. It was already past 3 o'clock. That's 9 hours already on the clock with more to do. So, I get on the computer to see what's in there for tomorrow, then go discuss it with the salesman - he comes to our place a lot to get some work done - and about to go outside to start working on orders.
A contractor pulls into the yard. This takes a while, not a huge order but enough to have to divert my time to getting it done. Back to work? Not quite. Another contractor comes up to the now-locked front door. I go and let him in. Get done with him and then something else - I don't remember what - comes up. I finally get to pulling the material off the truck and check all of the quantities and then print orders to pull for tomorrow morning.
So, this has been a typical day for a while now.
Rumors surfacing about sending drivers home after reaching 40 hours and bringing in temps (good luck with that - numerous reasons that wouldn't work out but too much to go into right now, almost my bedtime). Management calling my manager to ask about why the OT hours. On and on. I won't go into some of it considering this is the world wide web, needless to say if they want to cut our OT, they're going to have to bring in another worker into our store.
I was supposed to go to church tonight but getting home at just before 6 and the thing starting at 6:30? Nope. I really wanted to go, but just not happening. It's a bit after 8 and I am going to bed in a few minutes.
Company Christmas party on Saturday. GM returned my email: I would prefer if you only brought 1 person with you. That shot down having George and his girlfriend coming. They're nice people, good conversationalists, they would have been fun to bring along. It's his house, though.
Prince's haunches getting visibly worse. I get sick at the thought of having to put him down. He doesn't wince and is in no visible pain, but about the time that starts happening.....a trip to the vet will be in order. He's not sick, like with cancer or something such as Coco had, he's just having trouble with his hind end and walking. I am giving him glucosamine daily and am going to buy a bottle of the other stuff - the name of which escapes me right now - but that's about all you can do. Unless a vet has some other ideas. It's just a problem that large dogs can get. Duke, on the other hand, a much larger dog, has no joint problems going at all. I am also giving him the supplements.
