They added one of these electronic time management systems to my office, and it is incredibly uncompromising and unintuitive. They come to me once a month or so and ask me to lie about my exact hours, so it makes the books balance correctly, because apparently they can't be bothered to fix the software, can't afford to, don't know how to. The software was built for cube drones who never vary their 8 hour routine except to maybe shift the lunch by an hour once in a while. It wasn't made for field ops men and our crazy schedules. But they insist it is I that must conform reality to their software.

ArkAngel: $76,000 a year before overtime and they're living paycheck to paycheck?

There's a comedian(?) who has a bit about how the average Joe will say he works hard and parties hard. What this means is that he puts in 40 at a job he doesn't like and then goes to Applebee's happy hour and orders a pitcher with a couple friends once a month. Then he goes on to say that that isn't work hard/party hard. Work hard/party hard is the guys who work for months straight on oil rigs doing outrageous hours and walk off the rig with $20-30,000 in their pockets and blow it all in a week. That's what work hard/party hard is.
