It really takes your computer 30 minutes to start up after shut down over the weekend?  How on earth could you use it to provide tech support if it's that slow?

He's from Oklahoma so you never know!

Hey, I've got a routine and it works.  There is a saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!".  My routine isn't broken, so there's no need to fix it!

Also, my dear friend, aren't you trying to lose weight? Why the hell would you have a soda/"pop" in the morning? Come on. And don't you dare give me the "It's a Diet Dr. Pepper" nonsense.

Diet Dr. Pepper has no calories, so its not costing me anything in terms of calories.  Diet soda was a big catalyst to my big weight loss in November 2011.

Its not health food, but it is better than regular, calorie-laden pop.  Plus, just because I'm on a diet doesn't mean I should totally shun pop.  I refuse to drink only water.  I need to increase my water intake, but I refuse to switch totally to water.

I'm modifying my sleep time tonight.  Instead of going to bed at 8:00 pm, I'll go to bed at 10:00 pm and wake up at 4:30 am.  I want to wait until the House votes and passes this ugly bill.

The doors at my workplace aren't even unlocked (which is done automatically of course) until 30 minutes before opening. So if someone showed up 40 minutes early, they wouldn't even be able to get their badge to open the door. And of course they would be considered rather suspicious as well.

And if someone at my work started showing up 40 minutes early unless they had a valid excuse (carpool starts earlier, something like that), everyone would think they were insane.

400 pages of threads begs to differ with your premise.

Jeff, I was one of the worst with pop, but I've been pop-free since June.  I had switched to lemonade, but then with exams, I didn't go out and get more - I just stayed in and studied, and I've been drinking water for the past month+ (plus, the medication I'm on makes me thirsty, so I've been drinking a lot of water).

Ah, it seems you think that the only kind of beverages out there are soda and water. That isn't true in the slightest.
There are all sorts of things that would be better, from kefir to iced tea to juice.

Diet soda isn't good for you in the slightest -- you do know they use Splenda to fatten pigs, right?

Personally, Gramps, I am ready to get back to 8 hour plus work days.  The holidays were fun and all, but now its time to get down to serious business.  No, 11 hour days are not extraordinarily long.  Remember, I work 6-5 at Dell in OKC for 4 months from the beginning October 2011 to beginning February 2012.  I also worked 8-7 shortly after I got hired on permanent.  I have no doubt I will be able to handle it.  8 hours sleep is not an enormous amount of sleep and is really only a half hour to an hour more than what I get on most work nights anyway.  I'm not dreading the 11 hour days, at all, in fact I'm looking forward to them.  It will be extremely busy both days (Wednesday busier than Thursday) so the time will go by really fast.  Next week, I'll work some overtime, as well.  Monday is supposed to be another busy day, so I'll probably work 6-4 Monday-Thursday and work the normal 6:00-2:30 on Friday.  That would give me 6 hours overtime, the equivalent of 9 normal hours.  That is an extra $100 on my paycheck.  If I can do that both weeks, that's an extra $200.

Ok ok, perhaps I was harsh, sorry, but as Inks mentioned your postings make this schedule seem dramatic when it's not....do you see that?

FYI, before I took this job, I worked two jobs. I worked 5 months, 8-10 M-F, Saturdays 12-6, and Sundays 7-1. After that, for two months, I worked M-F 8-11, Saturday off, and Sunday 3-11. Don't make something that some people have to do for a long term living seem so dramatic.  Also, refusing to switch to all water is so lulzworthy! The only time I don't drink water is when I have my coffee or orange juice in the morning, or when I go out for a meal. When I do, I get a un-sweetend iced tea. Just get rid of all soda, it's not that difficult.

Overtime got canceled today as we were extremely slow.  IBM required us to have 55 agents staffed from 7:00-11:00 am, but we were steady with 25-35 in available and 5-15 on calls.  There were times when we got down to 2 or 3 on calls.  My supervisor came to me today at 1:45 telling me my overtime has been canceled for today and told me to go on home.  This is what they call IVTO - Involuntary Time Off.  This time I wasn't given a choice.  So, instead of gaining 2 1/2 hours on my check, I ended up losing 45 minutes.  They are normally extremely busy the day after New Year's Day, but we're thinking its because there were so many fires this past summer that nobody could use their vacation and were cramming in their vacations.  Tomorrow could go either way.  It could be extremely slow or it could be extremely busy.  Right now, I'm still scheduled to work until 5:00 tomorrow, but we'll see what happens as tomorrow rolls along.  We've got a sneaking suspicion that Monday could be a nightmare, but then again, nobody knows.  I only took about 8 calls all day today.  I didn't request to leave, my supervisor told me to leave early.  He did that to other agents, as well.

Bushie, if you're going to throw your life away to bacon cheeseburgers, at least eat ones that taste good.

We need to start bipartisan compromise.  We can't get Bushie to eat healthy, so eating better tasting unhealthy food seems like the next best solution.  At least that way he can enjoy the slow death.

I'd like to start the slow death diet with that burger, my friend.  Tongue

Indeed, I do wish I hadn't gone home early.  Although, I don't feel bad because every person I talked to said today would be extremely busy with no chance of a slow day based on years past.  Everybody was taken by surprise at how slow it was.  They probably would have sent us home earlier, but they were still unsure if it would stay slow or pick up.
