Where's my magic 8 ball?

After putting in my two week's notice, I discovered I would lose 48 hours (!!) of PTO, personal time off, without monetary compensation. My boss refused to let me take the time off because I needed to train my replacement, so we compromised - I bitched and moaned, and he agreed to let me have Friday off.

The big question for today, then: margaritas or beer for lunch?

I didn't think businesses could take away PTO if it was earned? But then what do I know?

Well, technically, it should be salted peanuts for lunch, washed down with beer, then margaritas for dessert.

Then bring in limburgher cheese and broccoli (which smells alarmingly like poop or something dead) for snacks for the rest of the week.

Oh. Never mind. Today's Thursday.

Another great idea, shot all to hell.

Today's word verification is a weather term here in Minnesota:

apparently, it WAS beer and margaritas for lunch.

You need to have your boss talk to my boss, Indi. I would trade my PTO for margaritas and beer in a heartbeat.

Is that legal?
If you've earned PTO they cannot take it away without payment.

Hey, chick!! :)

Haven't been by in awhile (I know I'm a slacker!)
Congrats on the new job...looking forward to tales of more idiots ;).
Glad you got Friday off!! Hope everything is going well.

i hope your magic 8 ball is buried firmly in stbxboss' head. What a turd.

the new job HAS to be better, right?

today's word sounds like a gentle curse you'd use on a friend.

Bud lights ALL night until cleptomania sets in, then soap fights until you pass out. :)

Sarah said...

Looks like you're just as motivated as me to update, huh? At least you have your job as an excuse. I have.....well, nothing.

Quindigo said...

HAHAHA! Bud Light for 12 hours or passing out, whichever comes first :)
