Well, I live to learn. Got my check from workman's comp and guess what? Yeah, that's right--I should have listened to everyone and not insisted on going light duty! Basically the amount of the check is the same as the net pay I bring home every two weeks after taxes... So now I am stuck in the office from 915AM to 6PM Monday thru Friday for the next four weeks or I have surgery on my other hand, whichever comes first. Oh yeah, the 915AM is because the OM figured out that I wasn't scheduled for enough hours! And this is with only a half hour lunch break! How do you people DO it?! I will go stark raving crazy working in the office for that many hours every day. A couple of hours I can hang with--I'm not feeling the 8 hour thing! There is a reason I drive a bus for a living!
Needless to say, when I go in for the next surgery, I'm telling the doc straight up NOT to put me on light duty--I need to have SOME fun this summer! *grin*
