At work today, my boss made several calls trying to track down a guy who owed him money. Then he drove across town and ran inside only to catch the guy ducking out the back. This was the result of a business deal that I advised my boss not to make. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss changed my schedule from 7:45-3:45 with no lunch to 8-5 with an hour lunch, because we might miss an important call. We have voicemail. The phone rang 4 times all day, and each was AT&T soliciting business. None of the calls were after noon. I'm dumbemployed.
