Man it's been a while since I've been on the Report. I quit posting mainly because I felt I had nothing new to say. Then some other things began to really occupy my mind.
My DBL was on vacation last week, so everything is pretty jacked up. My entire routine gone to #&$@:-&:!$ Where I was hitting the house every other night, now I've only made the weekend. That's a tough turn. Repeatedly I would call in and ask what's going on, "what we NORMALLY do is this...... Can we
Earlier in the week my DBL was on vacation. You know how it is when someone tries to do someone else's job? Yeah. The lady filling in screwed up. Someone changed my NAT (Next Available Time) to four a.m. the next day. So I scored a whole other day off. Glad they are switching me to salary.
