    I got to start doing overtime this week.

    Time and a half. :) Now I just gotta make sure I don't run myself into the ground working too much. I've never had a job I could work more than 40 hours before. This is great!!

    I unknowingly tried to call out sick on my day

    off. It so so awkward! Manager's tone of voice shifted from "oh hey" to "I can't believe What I'm hearing" in about zero seconds flat, he pauses a moment to collect his thoughts before saying that it works out good because I'm off. I rarely call out sick or lie for that matter...
