Busy day at work, got the news that I had to cut 8 hours a week...not my work load, just my hours.

Just got home & we're full of calzones. Time to kick the shoes off & relax.

I'm wondering what will happen if I fail to do some of the things I do that are not in my job description. I bet I do at least three hours of work a week in small things for the Director of Nursing.

I won't be shorting my patients.

What?!? Insanity. So sorry, PF.

Got to go out of town to sit through an all day training with 45 of my closest friends and hear all about stuff we'd previously learned in grad school. And we get to go back tomorrow and do it again! Oh joy oh rapture.

You are in a business notorious for balancing the budget by getting kind hearted people to pick up the slack. If this is a trend in your current job maybe it is time to move on and get a fresh start in a new environment. Don't let them guilt you into sacrificing your own financial well being. This impacts not only your weekly earnings but also your own health, future retirement benefits etc... You also have an Ogre to think about. It is a trap!

When the medicare paperwork gets backed up and not being submitted in a timely manner, I think the Administrator might see things differently.
