No news is not likely
Well, the electrician never made it yesterday, so I had to go let him in at 8am this morning. There was a pool of water all over behind concessions because one of the fountain spigots was dripping. I called Pepsi repair after I had most of it mopped up. The repairman explained what caused the problem as he fixed it, but most of it was "man-speak" so I just nodded and smiled. The electrician, who also gibbered on in man-speak about his work, finished about 11, and because I'd only had a few hours sleep I came home and went back to bed. This makes (adding on fingers and wiggling toes to carry the one) fourteen consecutive days without an entire day off from work. Being on salary sucks sometimes.

Being on Salary sucks a lot of the time, only on the weeks when you only have to work 30 hours does it really rock.
I know how you feel Susie. I work for a family business, on salary. My last day off was New Years, and only because we were closed.
I had a total of 7 days off in all of 2004.
I've NEVER had a 30 hour week when I was on salary. Alway's 40+. I feel you pain Susie.
About the whole "Man Speak" thing, it's the only way we can feel superior than the "female of the species". Can't you just give us that one thing?
Yeah salary sucks.
Of course, the only time I've ever been salaried was in the Navy, so my opinion may be somewhat skewed :-)
30 hours, full time? And Santa and the Easter Bunny are real too.
My current job was hired at salary but that turned out to be a mistake. HR apologized and explained that the position was actually hourly. My whoop of joy was heard on three floors.
