This was pre-arraigned.
I reported to work today, not knowing if I would be working or not. They didn't have the software working yet. I volunteered to wait in the lounge for 30 minutes, just to see if they would get the information that they needed. After 30 minutes, no luck. So I didn't sign in. Now, I know that if I report to work I should get the four hours on my time-sheet. But since I volunteered to show up, just in case, I feel that they aren't responsible for me being there.
I called the temp agency to let them know. They said that was important. They would note in the files that there wasn't any work. That way the payroll department wont freak, thinking I'm a no show or that I'm not calling them when I'm going to miss work. Keep the temp agency happy.
Instead, I took advantage of already being halfway to Redmond and headed off to Fry's. That was the only reason I volunteer to go to Gig Harbor in the first place. I'm hunting for a new computer. Juli says I get one for my birthday. I already have a nice 500 G portable HD, and it's busy backing up the important files off of the company graphics computer [we just call it the Graphics computer].
On my way there I listened to lots of the audio book
On the subject of the computer though... It seems technology has advanced a bit since I've gone computer hunting. I looked over their display until my eyes started to water. All sorts of cool things, but many things I'm clueless about. "Ach, Crivens!" I don't think "hitting it with my head until it does what I want" will work, so I may need a little help with this one. Maybe I can work a deal with miertam.
Came home. Juli still hadn't left for work yet. You know, you can get a lot done in the morning if you get up early. Today Was spent shopping for Halloween. I dropped $50 on trick or treat candy. We will need it all. I expect at least 400 ghouls or it's "lights out" for us. Purchased a couple of pumpkins. Despite the dire predictions, they weren't too expensive.
At 4:15 I gave a call to work to see if I would be going tomorrow. At 4:30 I was taken out of the waiting cue and found out that, yes, I can go to work tomorrow. ...and that I was not to call the main number. I'll need to find out what number I am suppose to call though.
That was my day -ish.
