Not sure which I'd rather do at this point.

I could use the extra day to haul ass on the MJ.
Wait, you get paid for over time? Aren't you salery? WTF?

I worked 58hours last week, which included saturday, and got nothing in return. Worst part of salary right there.

Yup but only if we work more than 8 hours of overtime.

Anything under that we don't get paid for.

The main reason I hang around this place is they treat employees pretty damn good as far as financials/benefits.

I actually really enjoy gearing axles.

My brother's 8.75 was pretty easy.

all the time spent regearing axles i could have been doing something productive, like adding a cold air intake, making a pvc roof rack, or eating skittles.
