Re: gainful employment/burnout

Amen Judy. I put in 48 hours (hello 6 days) by 3:30 Friday - then my
boss get his knickers in a knot about me not wanting to come in every
Saturday. I work about every 3rd Saturday - deal w/ it people. If I
wasn't doing two jobs w/ no extra compensation, I might be more
sympathetic. But for the chicken kacky they're paying w/ no usable
benefits - please.
