Today is one of those days. Not a bad day by any means, but not really anything at all. It is raining here, the temperature is low, and the mood is lull. Work has been slow, and that is OK.
Tomorrow is our company’s profit sharing meeting. Every year our company executives sit down and go over the books of the last year. Once they have every expense covered they look at the remaining profits, and share them with every employee in the company. With the numbers being different every year, it isn’t something you can bank on receiving at all, or how much it may be. What they do is take the hours you worked that year, not including vacation time, and multiply it by a secret number. This secret number represents your job title and how high they value it. If you are a low level assembly guy in the shot you might be a 1.5, whereas if you are a department manager you might be a 5. Then depending on the rate at which they determined from the left over profits they apply that algorithm and determine what each employee gets, if anything. I know that is pretty confusing and it should be, because they really don’t want people knowing how they do it all. Some people get $500-$800 in an decent year, others can receive multiple thousands of dollars. It is a neat process, and helps people like me get back to financial stability most times. So that will be fun tomorrow.
Today was recycling day in my city. Twice a month the city comes by and picks up recyclables only. It is a great way for the city to be active in helping the environmental impact of humans and material waste. The city offers free collection bins for each resident, so it is no charge to you, the homeowner. They only thing you have to do is remember to separate trash from recycling, and put the bin out front! Pretty simple. My wife and I fill about two bins twice a month and it makes you reflect quite a bit on what you use throughout the month. I never thought I personally used that much stuff in plastic.
In other news our old neighbor, that is old and not doing well, moved. I think I had mentioned that before too. Her house went up for sale like ten days ago and it is now sold. It is real crappy if you ask me. The inside and out need some serious TLC. It was only up for $60,000 and I’m sure the family sold it for less. They just wanted to get rid of it. I’ll be looking in the local newspaper in the coming days to see who bought it. I hope they want to fix it up, rather than be some scummy people only making it worse. It would help if they were decent people as well. Only time will tell.
That is about all for today! Do you, or someone you know recycle? If so let me know in the comment below.
I’ll see you all back again tomorrow! 😀 😀
