Exactly! That's what bugs me! I'm a manufacturing engineer but not a manager so my salary is just okay... average. And to not get paid for overtime doesn't do much in way of motivation to work. The thing is, other than this issue.. the ridiculous amount of overtime, I like my job. It's much better than my previous one, which, granted, had little overtime. You can't win em all. I would seriously like to know how much the hourly people are making after working 58 to 65 hours a week!!!

Just look at the salary of cops after all their overtime (construction details, etc.) They can make 6 figures easy.

I've got an office and a cool title, but the secretary that they gave me is borderline retarded ... do you think they are just testing me, or is this one of those 'karma is a bitch' type of things?

It is questions like these that keep me up at night! I'm grinding my teeth all the time. I walk into a meeting with the uppersuits and I can't tell if they are patronizing me or if I am paranoid.

I sit in my office and watch the construction worker who is pretending that the hose from the near by fire hydrant is his penis as he sprays its water towards my female colleagues and I just think - where did my life go wrong?

That's still not as bad as people who are stuck on a billing system, where it takes your roughly 1.5 hours or more to perform 1 billable hour.

Tonight at work the lights shut off automatically at 9pm, so I fucking kept working in the day, with just the glow from my monitor to guide me. So, hey, coal miners out there, now I know what it's like to work thousands of feet under ground, in the dark, so quit your whining. Also, we ran out of legal sized paper today.

Dude - wah wah wah. I haven't had a tape dispenser or a scissor in over a year. If I need tape I need to rip with my teeth, like I'm some kind of animal. Ugh.

I once had no scissors, so I took a lot of paper clips and melded them together, then sharpened them, and made me a good ol' fashioned office shiv. I still had nothing to cut paper with, but, I had something to attack coworkers with, and that was good enough for me.

Well, you're not going to believe this.

They did some work in my office early this morning, and, it looks like there is some residue on my office floor. Could be some sort of powder, not really sure. Might be cocaine, even, you just don't know what these construction types do. Regardless, how in the hell am I expected to perform up to my usual professional standards when my office is littered? How am I supposed to focus!?!?!? This day sucks already.

I hear that. I think given the circumstances, it's probably a good time to call maintenance, and then leave for a few hours to golf. Relax a bit. Then use the weekend to settle down. Hopefully by Monday you'll be ready to go back and take care of business. No one said life was easy.

I hear you...

The cleaning lady forgot to empty my wastebasket last night and there is granola bar wrapper still in there from yesterday, how am I supposed to concentrate???

I'm seriously considering taking this up with HR.

Also, and you guys will relate....I ordered a mini-fridge for my office like a week ago. What's that? Has it arrived? Nope. So, still, I have to get up and walk like 100 feet (That's 33.3 yards!) to one of the common refrigerators. So, not only do I have this insane walk, but, my food or drinks or whatnot have to coexist (thanks, Bono) with the foodstuffs of people who are, let's be honest, not exactly at my level, in myriad ways. This is nothing short of an outrage, really.
