Overtime

At work today, I was assigned to the student union in my college. It’s finals right now, so things were busy with students buying coffee. As a student, I have finals too. But I’m also broke. So now I’m working every shift. Who knows when I’ll have a chance to actually study. I’m dumbemployed.

At work today, I was stuck tagging old butterfly bodies with species names. I realized about halfway through that I was putting the tags on upside down. It took me two hours just to flip them around. And I still have to do the other cases. I’m dumbemployed.

At work today, we were putting together the finishing touches on an analysis of a soon to be bankrupt financial firm. It was an OK case study, but had taken way too long. Then my coworker turned on MSNBC. Guess which company’s getting a bailout? We have to redo the entire paper. I’m dumbemployed.

At work today, I was supposed to chart weather patterns in southern California for the previous six months. It was a little dull after the fourth hour. Later, a coworker came over and revealed that I was supposed to be recording stats for northern California instead. I’m dumbemployed.

At work today, my friend Jade quit (yes, her name is Jade. no, I'm not a stripper). Anyway, it turns out that she quit for a good reason. She hasn't worked the past three months. Guess who's catching up for her? Thanks Jade. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was working with a coworker on a new draft for a mall brochure. Every ten minutes, she kept getting a "great new idea for how to fix it." Nothing was wrong, but each new idea means twenty more minutes of me making mock-ups this weekend. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was trying to save a second copy of a computer file. Well, a friend came up and talked to me about her cat for ten minutes. Of course, my screensaver came on. Guess who lost their file? At least know about a stupid cat. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was forced to reorganize the coat closet. It took a surprisingly long time and, since I have allergies, left me sneezing. My boss scratched his stubbly little beard. “Now this, kid, is why I hired you.” I smiled and nodded at him. I have an MBA. I’m dumbemployed.

At work today, I found out that the play I'm ushering is going really well. At first I was excited because that means I'll have a job for a while. Then I found out that we were adding a second show- on Saturday night. So much for actually having fun with my paycheck. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was put in charge of mailing our brochures to national businesses. I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time to whoever thought it up. So far I've packed one hundred eighty envelopes. I'm on page two of the list. There are thirty three pages. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I finished installing a pool for a young couple. I told them I was done and they asked me when I'd be installing the hot tub. They hadn't ordered a hot tub, but they wanted it done today. I wish I could drink on the job. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was assigned to frost a cake for a couple getting married. It took four hours. I went to take a bathroom break and found that the owner's son had smashed his hand right into the middle of the cake. Did he get in trouble? No. But I get to make the cake again. I'm dumbemployed.
