No, it's not another work rant! Craig identified this as a manure spreader on our Saturday morning bike ride. Thank God it wasn't loaded! Sorry, but I just couldn't resist!
And by the way, I think the work problems are solved. We think they may have the break room bugged, or maybe the project head just detected that the natives were restless? Miss Crack the Whip was not exactly friendly, but much subdued and not a tornado of threatening behavior this morning. And there was an insurrection of the workers at the starting bell. We still really had no idea what we were actually making, and people just demanded that H.R. make an appearance and provide the information. Much to our surprise, I think they took note after several employees resigned the first day of the project due to pay objections. H.R. announced that they had decided to pay us the customary site salary. We probably won't make anything extra, but at least we now feel like we're not being cheated.
Don't worry -- be happy!
