The Birthday Gift from The Boss

21 Nov 2008

I turn twenty-nine today and the birthday gift from the boss: “That course I asked you to teach?  Well, there’s a scheduling conflict and the participants can’t fly out to Calgary.  You’ll have to go to Toronto next week.”

That two-day course is now four days with travel time.  Ugh!

On the bright side, there’s a business function tonight with an open bar and the company’s so paying for my taxi ride home.

    What is this overtime of which you speak? It sounds like madness!

    If I take my annual salary and divide by the actual hours I work, my hourly pay is probably equivalent to that of Wally World greeter’s.
