Hope everyone's week has been going good! Work has been kinda crazy lately!! People just seem to think my group can just snap there fingers and things be done instantly!! It don't work that way! But, the task is done...and a day ahead of schedule...so now we can breathe! :) So anyways my boss comes into my and my co-worker's office yesterday and says something to the fact that since we are still new and we need some "face time" we must now work from 8-5 and must take our hour lunch! Normally I come in at 7:30, eat my lunch while working and I'm outta there by 3:30. I miss most of the heavy traffic and get home around 4:00 or a few minutes after. Now that I can't leave until 5:00, I'll hit ALL that crazy traffic and now won't get home until almost 6:00. My boss said that normal hours are 8-5 and since we may still need some "training" or have questions, we need to be here those hours. Now...that may sound smart, but there's only two people that "train" myself and my co-worker.....one leaves at 1:00 for his second job and the other leaves anywhere between 4:30-6:30. If we have ANY questions on what we are working on, we would ask them way before 5:00!!!!! Also, we are the only two that has to work those hours. The other people in my group still work whatever they want as long as they have 40 hrs in at the end of the week!! The two guys that "train" us said there should be no reason that we have to work those hours! Everything was working fine the way we were doing it! Most people here leave around 4:30. Again.....why do we need to stay?!!! So... since I HAD to take my lunch break, I ate at my desk, then walked to the outside mall (we're just right across from it) and walked around it for 50 minitues. I guess that's a plus side to this whole thing....I now get my exercise in during lunch and don't have to try to do it when I get home. :) But anyways, I'm so ready for this week to be over!!!!
