Work Blows

(Nice Visual--huh)

At work we are doing away with the semi-annual bonuses and attendance bonuses and combining them into a higher hourly wage. So, the HR guy put out the first sheet of how much everyone's raise will be...and there was almost a riot!!!!
One guy came in and said they were all putting on their "war paint". 87% of our workers are Native American and so was he....it got kinda scary. So now, I get to go thru the past 20 months of time..that's 80 weeks at 250 employees a week and type out the reasons for the time they missed......BLEK!!! Oh well, job security I guess...it all pays the same...
Much to my surprise, the teen came home the other night and said he just asked for a reduction in hours. He asked for Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday off--always. Tuesday and Thursday mainly due to Ashton has twae-kwon doe and has to be picked up early at daycare so he can eat before he goes and most of the time the teen does that for me if he is not working.
I was shocked and almost cried....he actually put some thought into a decision and made a good decision...
How's your week going?
