and because of this, i have no place other than a motel to go to when im not working because renting someplace that you may not even see in a month makes no sense
i worked 145 days out of 171 first of the year...lost track of it after that.....
but it isnt the greatest thing to never really know where you are going or when you are gonna have off....or where you are gonna stay when you arent working
well...anyway...that is only a little part of it...i could type all nite and just make a dent in it
but it really sucks in a LOT of ways and the pay only makes up for the bull**** a little, i can assure you
and it is real easy to get screwed out of a LOT of pay when the job ends and you are 3 OT pay days short of a full check...happens a LOT...way too much
I can see how that got old quick. Spent months working in Ireland living out of a hotel, never actually getting any time to see the country (or too tired to try).
Sorry to hear they play games with your paycheck. Some companies calculate OT weekly or even daily, not just a cumulative over two weeks.
Hang in there, AND POST UP IF YOU WILL BE IN TOWN. I plan to take off some time after the 14th, and would dig meeting up.

Kids have an advent calendar that reminds them daily. Kind of fun.
