Tonight was the first real night of the new "Christmas Shift" at the post office. Everyone has to work 6 days and your night ends by the shift that you started at. But that is an arbitrary decision. It is said that everyone will work at least 8 hours with the possibility of 12 hours. Unless you sign a "early out sheet" this is not really what it sounds like. The early out sheet tonight were not even used. The mail was very low and my group got to clock out after 6.75 hours. I don't know how long I can keep this going. The pay is outrageous ($14/hr), but is my health and sanity worth it? I have some major bills that are not going to be paid off any time soon (even at this rate). But I guess every little bit helps. At least I can use my PDA/cell to get on Bear411 during breaks. There is a little bit of my sanity saved. I am going to try and stick it out until my birthday. I am hoping that it will be a great birthday present, to myself, that I can quite this fucking job!
