    If I do less, twice as often, would that be considered overtime, for social security. LOL:smile2::smile2: Or maybe go fishing twice as often, I need to do something to get bigger checks. :eek:oooh:

    rant? vent? i am glad i have a job! i work up to 36 hours of overtime weekly and wish they would let me work 48! i am lucky enough to have a job in a field where they don't do lay offs, and all you have to do is watch 'cops' to see job security in action! WHEW! thanks for helping me get that off my chest! :big_smile::big_smile::big_smile:

    I got to work yesterday to find out that the next 3 schedules are done. Normally a good thing, however, I am scheduled to be at work at 5am the day after I graduate from college. (I asked off for 4 days off so I could have a vacation).

    No big deal though....I told them that if they really thought I could get there on time and sober....I would come in. :eek:oooh: They are changing it Monday.

    I plan on celebrating the hard work I have put into this school and work, and kids, and Matt, for the last 2 years by getting trashed and being lazy for 4 days!:smile2:

    Been outa work since 4th July, so only thing I can complain about is no work. Company split up and got very little to do. Only workin a few guys a couple days a week. Got a couple small painting jobs in CA, but not enough to hardly pay for gas. Other jobs got delayed. I got some lined up in MN, but gonna cost 500 bucks to get there. I left my trailer there, so I'm gonna be really squeezed for room headin back, got a job for a remodeling company, but they don't have any work. So far in debt can't hardly scrounge for minimum payments. I figure I got enough life insurance to cover everything, but by the time I pay my bills and got money to spend on me I will be dead anyway. No room or ground for a garden here, and water is too costly. Problems my family likes it here in CA, but I like the midwest, and got a place to stay there, but no utilities. Got to get the roof on and pay for that to live there first. Other than that, life is good.

    No complaints here. After seeing Phizer Pharmasuticals permanently lay off 600+, International Paper close down, Great Dane trailers lay off, Bemis Plastics lay off, Columbia House lay off, Sony DADC lay off (all in Terre Haute, better than 2000 jobs), and surviving a cutback in January myself at CSN Steel, I'm glad to be employed and making good money. Times are tuff, be gratefull for what ya got.

    I love my job! It has it's moments like any other gig, but it's the position I've been working towards for the last 7 years so I'm pretty happy with it. Like lots have said, I'm just glad to have a job.

    People show up at my studio with a deer they want to get mounted. I tell them my price and they start raising cane! But all along they pulled up in a 50 thousand dollar truck with a 7 thousand dollar atv sitting in the back of it. With a weatherby rifle in the back window. And I am forced to tell them, "I have never had the honor of having a 50 grand truck with all the bells and whistles in my driveway until you showed up!" That usually takes care of'em.
