Be careful what you wish for. I started the new job and discovered "would you be willing to work some overtime" translates to a 50 to 70 hour workweek near as I can tell. Gulp. Maybe I'll get more excited when a paycheck hits the bank account. Right??? :crickets:
Well Wende did you get your first paycheck? Was it worth it? Hang in there a job in this economy is better than no job at all. How is J's job search going?
I used to get asked this question and my standard answer was that I understood that there were crunch times where everyone would have to work some OT. But if it was persistent and basically viewed as the status quo, this would indicate chronic understaffing and poor resource management.
I completely agree. Perhaps time to see if there any other options out there.
We're still struggling with this downsizing crap. My kitchen is too small. My closets are too small. And too full. It's annoying. Also annoying to get used to apartment living again. I try to focus on 'we have enough' and 'look at our budget! our expenses are so low!'. Right now I'm focusing on the young gentlemen that live above us that are apparently working on their drum skillz. Should I go out and shake my cane at them?? LOL.
As far as the apartment goes... Maybe it's time to downsize the wardrobes. Goodwill and thrift stores are a good place for donations.
As far as the neighbors what are your apartment complex rules for noise? Most apartments don't allow noise after 10:30pm or 11pm. Talk to them about it. If this doesn't fix things you can report to the management your dissatisfaction as I'm sure there are other neighbors who don't appreciate the drum skillz. If all else fails you can always call the cops
