Work is such a pain in the ass right now! I had to cancel my vacation to see my family in hawaii because of a software problem. It was not my fault but I am now responsible to pick up the pieces and clean the mess. I hate this place because I do alot and there is no compensation. I just really feel like I am being crapped on! I have a degree. I should not HAVE to eat crap! Shit I hate it!
That sucks. I remember over the summer constantly working more than 40 hours a week (usually at least 50, one time about 70--including 16 hours straight on July 4th) and not getting paid for overtime because I was working on a stupid grant and the department couldn't pay me for more than 40 hours a week.
But at least I liked my job (research assistant for my thesis advisor). I don't know how I'd react if I hated it. » ranor

Take solace in the fact that we love you here at Nutang, and will support 'ya no matter what.
Unless of course, you decide to bite me. Then the whole Nutang congregation will despise you. » Dilated

That's one sucky company. They should've given you compensation when they cancel your vacation. Jeez... hope it's not a really huge mess you got you got to clean up. » Nuttz

I actually had just graduated at that point and my thesis advisor hired me for the summer to manage the lab, carry out further experiments related to my thesis, troubleshoot experiments for her, and help train some newcomers to the lab. Despite having to be alone in the building at 4:00 in the morning at one point, I loved it. :) » ranor
