Friggin BUSY!!!

Ayiii, barely have time to surf today! ;-)

I've got SO much done today, so that's a good thing.

Ah yes, compromise works in the end:

My employers and I settled on a compromise. Instead of making me a contract employee and giving me a 21% raise, they're making me hourly and giving me an 18% raise. That means I'll actually get paid overtime for all the damn overtime I work.

Listen, if anyone out there is hourly and thinks they want to be exempt, forget it unless you already hardly work at all. All exempt means is that you get a few more days of vacation, but they can work your ass as much as they want to and not pay you more. Fuck that.

Anyway, with the 18% raise and getting overtime, I expect to see about a 30-35% increase in overall income. Let's see what that nets out to when Uncle Sam takes a look at that.

Next year I am going to have to donate $10,000 in clothes and old tupperware to the Goodwill. :-D
