Re: O.T. Bored out of my mind at work
Years ago I did that gig... and my boss came to me and told me to be more productive. I asked her if I could get a 20% raise if I could increase my productivity by 30%. She agreed. I kept a log of my actual work time, start and finish for each day for over three months. It averaged 15 minutes a 12 hour shift. I then figured I could increase my productivity by cutting out the chatter and focus more on the work... and decreased the work time to 10 minutes a day. That satisfied my request and I took my documentation to the supervisor. She hit the roof and told me she couldn't take that justification to her supervision when recommending me for a raise. I told her that I didn't care what she said to supervision... I only cared she keep her word on the raise. She stammered, hollered a little, cussed a lot and finally a couple of days later told me she'd been able to give me a 20% raise.
Ain't computers/networks great!
