My Life

Busy Week

I had to yell at the children again today. Fucking Children.. .THey were screaming and shit right outside my door again. I’m going to fucking shoot them soon! I called the office and complained as well. They did nothing though. Bastards.

This week at work is going to be very busy. Last week I updated the timesheet to have a page that simply showed the overtime hours. Anything that was over 8 hours in one day or 40 hours in one week… Now they go and add this to it: Eight hours of labor constitutes a day’s work. Any work in excess of eight hours in one workday and any work in excess of 40 hours in any one workweek and the first eight hours worked on the seventh day of work in any one workweek shall be compensated at the rate of no less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay for an employee. Any work in excess of 12 hours in one day shall be compensated at the rate of no less than twice the regular rate of pay for an employee. In addition, any work in excess of eight hours on any seventh day of a workweek shall be compensated at the rate of no less than twice the regular rate of pay of an employee. Nothing in this section requires an employer to combine more than one rate of overtime compensation in order to calculate the amount to be paid to an employee for any hour of overtime work.

Now the real question is… WHY didn’t someone think of this at the BEGINING of the project. It’s not like things like this ChANGE EVERY DAY, it’s SET IN THE LAW! Grrr. I’m just annoyed by this. I think I’ll have to come up with a new way to get the stuff. Blah.

Since we’re talking about money, I figure now would be a good time to mention that on Friday, I will break $100,000 earned in my life… That’s right, it’ll be $100,846.60.

Here’s some facts:

First Pay Check: 01/27/1997 For 547.44; Hours: 91.24; Taxes: 41.88 (7.65%): Hourly Wage: $6.00

Total Made Since then: $100,846.60

Total Hours: 8,027.08

Total Taxes Paid: $20,819.31

Net Pay: $80,027.29

Which means I’ve averaged $12,56 an hour since I started getting real paychecks.

Currently I’m making close to $30 an hour and get taxed at a rate of 32%… Pretty big jump from the 7.65% of my first job! lol

Now, the real question I ask myself is where did that $80,000 Go to!?!


First Car (’93 Cougar): $6,500 (Not including tax.title/lis)

Second Car (’00 Sarurn): $9,900 (Not including tax.title/lis)

2 Years Rent in Ames: ~$12,000 ($500*12months*2years)

1 Years Rent in Cali: ~$14,400 ($1200*12months)

IRA: $7,000

Household Goods (Tv, Furniture, etc): ~$4,000

Cougar Gas: $1,626.55 (1,296.537 Gallons at an average price of $1.146)

Saturn Gas: $2,590.25 (1,589.321 Gallons at an average price of $1.618)

Computers: $3,600.00 (Powerbook: $1500, Desk1 $600, Desk2 $600, Monitor1 $200, Monitor2 $200, iPod $500)

Cell Phone: ~$1,800 ($50*12months*3years)

Which means that I’ve spent about $16,500 on random shit since ’97 (Which is an average expendeture rate of ~$200 a month. Currently my cash outflow is $400 a month on “fun” items, including gas for my car, food,clothing,etc. Bills/Rent/Etc come from a different account).

Man, that’s just insane? Where’d all that money go!

Ok, I’m sure you’re all bored to death… I’m out!
