Set = the man!

At least apparently. I'd never toot my own horn in that way, at least not in a serious way. I'd do it in a sarcastic way, of course. But why am I the man? Because I saved my company's ass again on Thursday. Why am I talking about it two days later? Just because, all right! The boys in shipping (including my psuedo-cousin-in-law) got arrested, and thus were detained for the day. I found out and said that I would get over there to help package. My supervisor instead says that she will be the one to do it (probably because she knows that I do more work than she does, and therefore doesn't want to lose me over there), but the head boss says that I should the one to go over there and not her. Buwahaha. So I go over there. And I have some help, by a girl who has never worked over there before. So I'm basically telling her what to do. And she's very helpful, don't get me wrong. But she's probably only able to do about a quarter of the work that I did... which is still a quarter more than what I could have done otherwise. Then I go back to do the labels for the other building, and still manage to clock out on time. This is after I label all of the sleeves earlier that morning, because my supervisor said she wouldn't let me go until I finished that. So, yeah, I worked my ass off on Thursday, and I got it all done. Respect.

Then, on Friday, Peggy tells me that she had a meeting with the people in shipping because of the fact that we have to smack CoA's (Certificates of Analysis) on the boxes before they ship out. And it is a huge waste of time. I'm no longer doing CoA's regularly, though I do pitch hit when necessary, but I openly state that the part that sucks the most about them is putting them on the boxes over in shipping because it can take such a damned long time just to find the stupid things. So, the head boss asks the head of shipping after she says that training another person would be too hard who is the one person in the company who she would want to work over there if she could have them and she picks me, because I know what I'm doing and I work well with everyone and am dedicated to my job. People appreciate meeeeeeeeee. I doubt I'll go back to shipping, mind you, but it's nice to know that people know that I rock.

And that makes me feel good, too. Because, frankly, I feel abused at work. I mean, there's a line between being dependable (which I love) and being depended on (which I don't...). I can collectively save the asses of three different departments in that company, which is, basically, a little less than half of the departments that are there. This makes me pretty damned easy to keep on, which is good, but at the same time I really feel that people (particularly my direct supervisors) just take advantage of the fact that I'm there. Because even though they can fall back on me, I can't fall back on anyone. So they think that it's okay for them to pull me from my job so that they don't have to deal with it (and that's really why they don't do it, because they don't want to deal with it), but they don't seem to care that I then get pushed back in my other duties. I stayed a half hour over on Tuesday. I came in two hours early on Thursday (damn good thing, too, since that was when the shit hit the fan). And I left a half hour late on Friday. So, yeah, I'm extremely overworked, and frankly underpaid...

Plus, I worked today. Was done before 10, but only because we had so little to do since it was the 3 day weekend and we always package less when we have large gaps off. But Nellie, one of my other psuedo-cousins (she's cousins with my cousins), said that I worked fast.

Yet I haven't won employee of the month yet? To be fair, Cecilia, the woman who won it yesterday, is one of the best workers they've got. Better than me because she doesn't complain (I do, because, dammit, that shit ain't right), and I would have honestly felt bad if I won it before she did. But I still deserve that damned certificate and the hundred bucks!

You mean you get a 100 dollors if you are employee of the month? I was employee of the month three times in a row and I still didn't get nothing, but my picture hanging up at the main hospital...

Yup. We get 100 if we win employee of the month. Though you can only get it once... I assume. Until everyone has won it. Then I guess it would either be discontinued, or you could go again...

We also get a chance of winning 100 dollars when it is our birthday month by playing some random idiotic game.

And we win 1000 dollars for getting voted employee of the year. Or 500 dollars for getting picked as people's choice employee of the year. Trophies are awarded for those two, too.

awww no employee of the month? you could share it with Billy Dee -- and gt a plaque that Epiphany paid major bucks on, but then just cheaped out on the picture and threw a polariod in there.

Maybe next month! Billy Dee can't save a baby being born in an elevator every month!

Is that what that was? I have to admit that I was barely paying any attention to the show, so I didn't see what she was holding ever so dearly.

Damn, Nightshift sucks.

Yeah, doesn't look like anything is out that I want to see either. But I'm down for hanging, at least right now. I'll have to confirm with the rents. They're out right now.

Again, I don't really care where. I'm good wherever. But, you know what I wanted to check out, the new patio deal at Cedar House. I don't know if it'll be open at night, though.

They have a lot of stuff there. Salads, burgers, fish, chicken. I only went once, and I got the calamari appetizer. It can be expensive, I suppose. But not super expensive.

You gotta drive? Denied!
