De' fliengde Vuogtlänn'r

Observations, rants, etc. from a guy who really gets around.



The guy I work for now is part Egyptian and part German. He hired me recently, but we're still working out the schedule. It looks like I'll start in earnest on Monday (and no Sundays!).

I only "worked" 3 hours this pay period. He said he'd start me at $7/hr at first, then up to $12. So I go in today to get my measly $21 and he pays me $30. I didn't even notice it until I got over to SprawlMart. So I went back and said "Dude, you gave me too much money" (he paid me in cash b/c he's already done his April taxes and doesn't want to screw around re-doing it; plus, 3 hours is considered "casual labor" by the gummint). He says "What is problem?"

"You only owed me $21."

"What is problem?"

"You overpaid me."

"What is problem?"

(Blank stare)

Nice guy. I walked out talking to myself.
