Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Strange Patterns At Work Cause Pause For Needed Overtime

Posted 12-05-2022 at 11:40 AM by case44

This morning, this buzz-haired Texas critter had every intention of going into work this morning to hopefully do some extra work, as my workplace often experiences high volume during this time of the year. Sometimes, things go like I like them, and there's a chance at some needed overtime, all the while, helping out a smaller crew (usually the case on a Monday, as opposed to the next day when more are present).

I dutifully had stayed in touch with my supervisor. While I decided to go into the office and look at the board without clocking in, I had noticed that volume was not high enough for me to adequately give two to four hours of extra work to help the crew. For the uninitiated, I do data entry with a Customs Brokerage department. At any rate, things Monday were a little too comfortable for the regular crew that they can adequately and easily handle things. Two days prior to this, on the other hand, Saturday's volume count was the complete opposite and more in line with the patterns we've had during this holiday period. I would have thought that, within the season at hand, such trends would continue into this week. So far, the week hasn't exactly had a hot start. Leading into the midweek and towards the weekend, trends should be expected to change because commerce demand is always going to be there, and your writer would (might?) once again have his needed ten-hour days.

While I'm disappointed that I could not get any OT for this day off from work, hope should still spring forth. We've still got quite a few days left until Christmas.
