    Yesterday afternoon the super big dogs..and HR.....Accounting weasles meet with the boss dude (dud) and reviewed the books....I found out that they could not afford me (that was a no brainer) ... actualy my position...so my job was elimanated and Im being sent out to the cape. At first it kinda hit me hard...but I played with the math..hours*rate. Since I was a Salary employee before..now hourly I end up makeing more $$ (about $100-200 bi-weekly) after being "demoted". So that was kinda funny..cant affored me so pay me more (basedon working the same number of hours I work now..but getting payed for working overtime)...I get less work..less stress and better hours. I also was able to weasle a few weeks pay as a demotion gift to help me adjust so Im gona have to review the gun adds :)

    They did take away my company Cell phone and page since Im no longer going to be on call....you mean no 3am wake up calls...bummer

    Still I fell kinda sad at loseing the title..power. But when they Ax 1 bosses wife and 1 bosses son its hard to take it personaly....guess Ill get up to the 2k post sooner...

    On a funny note.......the big and bigger dogs were realy nervous explaining the situation too me....1 kept looking at the 8x10 glossy of my rifle collection hanging above my desk....I bet they drew stras to see who got to reasign the "gun Nut" :):D

    Sounds like the corporate geniuses at my job. Took me off salary and put me on hourly. Took my cell phone, too. So, now that I have a regular (?) schedule, with technicians to escort at a given time. I now get paid my mileage and drive time and overtime. They pay me for my traveling expenses like hotels, tolls, fees, and they pay for all of my government identification and placards. Plus, I don't have to answer my home phone, 'cause I'm not paid to wait on their call anymore!!
    $2000 every 2 weeks was too much. Now I'm in the $2500-2600 range. Go figure.
    Man, am I ever sorry I didn't go to college!:rolleyes:

    They demoted the gun nut but gave him more money!?!?!

    See what being a gunnut will get ya!!!

    You probably needed less work and more money - I know I do.
     
  4. I should have thought of the 8X10 glossy picture thing. Sure would look nice on my desk and I'd be willing to bet that the boss would cosider my ideas MUCH more carefully.....

    Just take a regular..devloped at wal-mart pic of your gun collection..or one from a gun show...the net ect...(not like they will know) take it to Ecards..Walgreens one of the drug stores....the ones in my area have a phot enlarger machine you use it like a copy machine...but it prints out the 8x10 glossey for $5. Just rember a small colection to us "gun nuts" is an Arsnel to non gun owners and a signed autograph from saten to the anti gun people. :)

    Calvin it works beter if when you show off the firearms in the pic you point to one or two and go.."course I aint killed no one with these 2 YET" or say thinks like my Parole officer done told me next time a shoot someone he/she will violate my parole. These work realy good if the person you are talking to is anti-gun.... :)
