run the fuck away
So, next week I'm in Elmira, NY for class. This is kinda a steaming pile of shit- in part, because while I only need to be there for four days (M-Th), I have to stay over into Friday because busses only leave at 0700. Now, the General Manager at work, has decided he wants me to come home on Thursday night so that I can go to the Christmas party (Friday at noon- if I take the bus home, I'll arrive home at about 1400 on Friday).

So, he's looking into alternative transportation, but he's also authorized me to offer a sum of money to anyone who wants to do a round trip run to Elmira Thursday afternoon-evening. This would entail getting to Elmira sometime after 1600 (class officially ends at 1630, but it usually wraps up early) and returning to Albany sometime before 1200 on Friday (ie. timing is pretty flexible- it's a couple of hours driving).

The financial compensation is "mileage plus a 'tip'"- @$0.35/mile, about 200 miles each way, + $50 on top, we're getting into the range of about $190-$200. So, anybody who wants to make $200 in exchange for playing taxi-cab next Thursday, let me know. I'll throw down my own cash to fill your tank in addition to the money my company gives you.
  • Tell your boss he's full of shit; legal New York compensation for mileage right no is 44.5 cents per mile.
    :D

    I'd jump on it, because I always love me some cash and interesting company, but Thursday I have been claimed for the Visiting of the Neice: who I haven't seen in three years and probably doesn't like me anyway. Yay family. :D
    • Why would she not like you???
      • She's... a very different type of person from the sort whose company I seek out, or who seek out my company. But I'm going to be nice, and not try too hard to be the cool young auntie; if she likes me, neat, and if not, oh well.

        ...did I mention she's, like 19? Yeah, I have a teenage niece.
    • That's what the state reimburses its employees- but there is not a law that requires an employer to pay the same amount.

      That said, we should still hang out at some point. Gets people together and stuff.
  • i know we havent talked in a while but im free thursday if you are still looking call me at home either 845-687-6157 or on my cell 845-309-5786 id be glad to do it get the chance to see you again
