I was supposed to put in 8 hours OT tomorrow, but ownership decided today to close at 7am. A cost cutting move, I guess.

I'll work again Friday, then have the weekend off.

(Also get off 2 hours early on the 31st, and off the 1st.)

Wow.

Yeah. They're not docking anyone's vacation, or sick time either. I've never seen anything like it. I was just offered a bunch more money to jump ship, and I'm about to turn it down. How much is honesty, and integrity worth? I don't know, but I think I'm about to find out.

Too much, considering I don't get paid for it. I do have a side project I'll be working on next week to make a few bucks.

Yeah. I would be. I don't expect much, but a couple of 4 day weekends to end the year are a much needed recharge. I didn't expect it to turn into 2 weeks.

I get a full day off for xmass and new years day. The company decided to ditch holiday parties and instead give everyone half days on xmass eve and new years eve.

I have no paid leave time left so I won't be taking any additional time off.

Bob Dole left work last Friday at 5pm and won't go back until 1/5 at 8am.

Had to burn 20 hours of leave to get that uninterrupted block, but it's worth it.

That's how my deal is. I'm a contractor and I don't work for weeks then get several jobs all at once. I love it. I get bored laying around the house.
