    Un empleado tiene que comer, señor. (An employee has got to eat, sir.)

    So go eat, and just guess at the numbers.

    Why don’t you just get a robot to do that?

    I, too, had a boss that had no concept of time constraints nor the size of the United States (he was a Scotsman fresh off the airplane).
    He would think nothing of sending me in a box truck from the Philadelphia area to southern Vermont and back as a day trip.
    He also often sent me from the Philly area to do a New York City route – with a side trip to Alexandria, VIRGINIA!
    He berated me for not doctoring my log book when I was pulled over by Maryland state police and placed out-of-service for 8 hours because I had already been on the road for 18 hours and was still 2 hours from home. He had to come and pick me up.
    He called me “unemployable” because I took a half-hour lunch break on a 25-1/2 hour shift. I told him that NO one was employable under his conditions – that’s why there are hours of service laws for truck drivers in the United States.
    The longest I spent on the clock at a single punch-in was 39-1/4 hours. I clocked in at 9:00 PM on Sunday night and clocked out at 1:45 PM on Tuesday afternoon. I had to do a NYC run, then move his personal household in the company truck, and by the time that was finished, I had to do my Washington, DC run.
    He was from the suburbs of Lockerbie, and was drinking in a pub about 500 yards from the crash site when Pan Am Flight 103 was blown up. I teased him, saying that the plane wasn’t the only thing getting bombed in Lockerbie that night! ;-)

    What about just informing the boss, doing your best, and leaving him with the consequences instead of taking it on yourself? These people continue to be blind partially because they are continually enabled.

    I worked for a company that insisted on this type of action, which was no problem for most of us. But someone called the Dept. of Labor which came in and interviewed all of us, made a ruling which the company had to adhere to.
    The result was a change in company rules which we (management and employees) did not want.

    The next comment from Baldo should be,‘No sir, that’s ok. I don’t mind staying the extra time needed to get the job done.’

    I had a boss who thought the time it took to say it was the time it took to do it!

    This won’t be good for Baldo.

    I had bosses like that, until I found a better boss.

    “so long as you’re paying me for the time!”

    Strange, when it sounds more like Obamanomics and liberal accounting.
