Despair

It's 1840pm and I'm still sitting at my desk with a list of tasks so long I can't see the end in sight. I'm tired, grouchy and above all desperately hungry because I don't even remember eating lunch.

The question is: Do I go home now and start tomorrow with a list already 20 items long or do I stay later and complete them?

I wish I knew the answer.

Tell me you get paid overtime or something, please?

@sugar - I bailed at 730pm, got sick of being here and now am regretting it.

@Mr Rabbit - Overtime? What's that?

Mr R Rabbit said...

You know, McDonalds pays overtime, I'm sure you could get a position there.

Okay, don't kill me, that was a joke.

It's a no-win situation.
So how is life in the concentration camp?

I'm so with you there with the working late despair - my new contract says that I have a 40 hour work week OR however much time is needed to complete my job to thier satisfation!! How fucked up is that !!!

@Gem - I signed my contract with a neat little clause that says "your hours are 10-6pm but you may be called upon to work more than these regular hours and that you accept not to be paid any overtime during these periods" Nice hey?

@Chitty - It fairs ok, the big wigs are all heading off overseas so we're able to have a bit more fun :)
