Ive been salary for 8 months now, making lot more than I was hourly but it's also a lot harder job too. Sometimes though it would be nice to only work 40hrs instead of 50ish a month.

Don't have vacation time this year but next year I start with 10 days. If I stayed with Aco being salary this year I would of had 5weeks paid vacation but for few g's less. Kinda wish I was back in retail though. More fun.

12 hrs a week isn't so bad. In fact that's a pretty relaxed work week. why do you want fewer?
didn't know part timers could be salaried. hehe.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure too, but you gotta heckle people for that sort of stuff. Keeps them on their toes.

And yeah, forget any position that works with customers. I'll stick to computers. They have mute buttons and it's not illegal to take them out back and shoot them when they piss you off.

Well...it is and it isn't. You can buy a gun, in many states you can legally carry the gun, but as a general rule you can only kill people once or a few times...then you have to enter this special isolation and fitness program for an unspecified number of years for each person killed before you are allowed to resume your own life.
Don't quote me on this, but I think there's some sort of exemption for pig farmers, as well.

EDIT: Similarly, the gov't also offers this other program that lets you kill people, but I think it's dumb because you don't get to choose who it is, in addition, the other person is usually trying to kill you as well, which is a bit of a raw deal if you ask me.

You can also claim mentally insane and limit you amount of the in the fitness program, but some say that it is a harder life being in the fitness program.

yeah I heard that too, but I'm not sure believe it with the number of participants who complete the program and start looking for ways to re-enroll not long after.

The insanity plea is a legal funny-ha-ha. Think of it more as a, 'Guilty but with damn good reason' plea. You get the same post-fitment program restrictions, just less time in the initial program. You also go to a less intensive facility with more comfortable walls and floors, not to mention a free jacket to make you feel like youre being hugged all the time (and who doesnt like hugs?), and many times they even give you designer drugs, too.
