Default The extra money was nice

Wasn't sure where to put this, so I stuck it in General.

Wednesday evening I was staying up a little late (haha, yeah right, 5 pm) as I expected to have today off. My wife (Al has requested to be referred to this way, so instead of Al, she's now Luna) and I share a phone, and while taking a shower and using it for music, a voicemail was left.

The truck that was to show up Saturday showed up last night instead, and they were rushing to look for people who'd work today as it was originally a scheduled day off.

Turns out only a dozen people showed up. We worked pretty hard and had to spread ourselves over several departments, but we got it done.

The bonus, of course, was twofold...not only did we get time and a half plus the extra dollar an hour, but those who came in today...

...do not have to come in tomorrow morning!!

No need to try and put shit away while the masses are assailing one another over Hatchimals and Nintendo Classics!

Wow. Some people are gonna be kicking themselves.

Of course, if more people came in, you wouldn't have worked so hard but management wouldn't have offered that opportunity.
