  • who went to work between Xmas & New Years?

    Isn't this the most torturous week for those of us that DIDN'T take leave for the holidays???? Don't get me wrong, i'm extremely thankful i have a job, especially one where isn't blocked....YET! but for the love of gawd it's a ghost town up in here!!!!

    thank goodness we only have a 1/2 day today!

    How are you occupying your time in an office that's been abandoned for the holidays?
    *BE EASY*

    I only had to work Monday Thru Wednesday - (AM office x-mas party, and 3/4 day) last week, and this week I only had to work Tuesday and Wednesday (3/4 day). So last week I worked like 22 hours, and this week like 14.5 hours, and got paid for 40 hours both weeks, lol. But when we work a normal 40 hour week it can be crazy so I'd say we were deserving of some nice paid time off.

          I just had to get 24 hours in this week and last week, and it's been TOUGH!!!!!! In fact I'm still 8 hours short this week, so I plan on working 2 hours a day for the next 4 days.

          The school is deserted, and kinda spooky!!

            I'm here (the lab) debugging one program and designing lenses with another. All I hope is a skip the minor electrical fire I managed to start while working on Christmas Eve. Those dang electronics don't work so well, when you let the smoke out.

              We only had to work Mon and Tues last week and we were supposed to work Monday-Wed and a 1/2 day today but Chairman changed it so we worked Monday and Tues and 1/2 day Wed.

              Last week I was ok with it because when it's quiet, I don't have people in my office and I can get things done but this week just DRAGGED! I knew I should have taken it off!

              Happy New Year everyone!

                Well i'm plugging away. Finishing up the year 2009. One of the ugliest I've ever seen. Corporate assasigns, Economic decay, etc... Get off at 5.

                Wishing i was heading to powwow @ Haskell. Instead, I'll cook up a bunch o King Crab when i get home. Maybe even mix in some " George Dickel"

                        Does anyone work a 4 day week? Gov't and State employees?

                        Paul, you can probably ring in on this one. Lately the rising gas prices has been the hot topic and the different ways it will affect day to day life. I know there is a thread out there about the powwow attendence being down and this year at Red Earth I saw that myself. I missed seeing some people and...

                        Most employees with school-aged children are out this week. The parking lots are almost half empty. Only the ones who have to work or those that don't have children in school are at work. Some of my co-workers are out of state in LoonyLand (GoofyLand?).

                        Well I took the ASVAB today at the Reserve center. For those who do not know, the ASVAB (Armed Service Vocational Apptitude Battery) is a placement test for those enlisting in the military (Coast Guard included). The ASVAB is divided up into 9 different test ranging from Mechanical knowledge to Math...
