WHY AM I NOT RICH?

I have to work today... we have home office company and management wants it to look like we have enough people to run the store right.  We don't, which is why they are making me come in on my day off.  They figure since they gave me an extra day off due to the holiday, I could work my regular scheduled day off.  That bites!

So anyhow, I've been with this company for almost 6 years.  Why am I not rich?  I should be rich.  I own stock... kind of.  Actually I own stock off and on, I sell them when I'm REALLY broke.  I don't even know where my money is going to.  I don't have a lot of stuff, and I only have 2 bills besides groceries and gas.  Of course groceries is a huge chunk of my paycheck.  Dang it, why do we have to eat?  That smoothie diet is starting to sound really good.  The kids like them, I might actually get them to drink them instead of their 3 square meals a day.  Quick math (notice... no algebra, triginometry or calculus): 7 family members, 3 meals a day, 7 days a week.... 7x3x7 = 147 a week, or 294 every two weeks... at $1 a pop.... holy mackerel... thats $294 every 2 weeks on that strawberry snot.... just about what I spend on groceries anyhow.  She-ette!  I can't afford to be rich!

Didn't get much sleep last night.  First of all I found out why they put handles on mattresses J  We sleep with the fan blowing on the bed, and later on Dickidoo started flatulating in his sleep.  Unfortunately I was downwind, so I turned to face the wall.  Well, the room isn't that big so when the toxic breeze hit the wall, it blew right back into my face.  I think it was that Flat Tire beer he was drinking, man it was rank!  Gonna have to feed him something sweet for the next couple of days just to flush his septic tank out cos I can't go through another night like last night.  Either that or I'm gonna get one of them Glade Plug-ins and plug it in!

Got time to grab one more pot of coffee then I'm off to earn my minimum wage.  This really sucks, you know?  Just say no.... I've got to remember that the next time they ask... just sayNO!

Thats usually how it works. If they give you a day off , they take a day off away.
I guess I'm lucky I had to work. My luck they will take my day off anyway. lol.
Have a great day.

You've been working there 6 years and you are still making minimum wage?! That is so beyond wrong!! You should have been promoted to Store Manager by now. Ever consider moving your skills to a different company? One that pays better and promotes from within? LOL sorry...my old rabid ambition is rearing it's ugly head. Being a stay at home mom doesn't give me any room for advancement these days. LOL -B

If you really do work minimum wage, why not work at a bank as a teller? I don't know if you were just joking about how much you make or not, but you get pretty good pay, usually with health benefits and all sorts of stuff. Come on, you can play with money all day and at least feel rich, right? Anyway, this is both a bit of a tease and a suggestion. I had two weeks of training, then off I was on my own. And I don't like those diet drinks, they taste funny. And think about if you drank nothing but those drinks how "loose" your intestinal tract would be after a while! I think I'll stick with solid foods. :D

Grrrr...just one of the things about management that piss me off.  They're trying to make it look like they have plenty of people when they don't.  So they come off looking great.  Sure they can run the store paying less wages and still get everything done.  Because the underappreciated employees are working their butts off trying to do the work of 3 peopls at once.  Ma goes through the same crap at her job.

Wow...I'm really dense. I had to read the paragraph about the mattress three times before I figured out why the handles are there, and that their existence had nothing to do with farts... :o)
