The reward for a job well done

. . . is another job, of course.  I just recently finished updating, editing and reformatting a document of over 200 pages, so, naturally, I've been assigned to do the same for two similar documents from two other divisions.  In the bad old days, I would have asked, "Who died and left me in charge?"  But my Rosh HaShanah/Jewish New Year resolution is to develop a positive attitude.  So now, I simply consider these assignments an opportunity to show what I can do for my employer, which should, I hope, help me stay employed.  I've been doing unpaid overtime for about two weeks now and expect to continue working unpaid OT for another few weeks, which should enhance my reputation with at least one of the folks in the Executive Office.

I just thought I'd come up for air during this temporary respite and say hi, before my three readers wonder what's become of me.  Now, back to work!

unpaid OT is illegal, unless you are an exempt employee.
