Since 6pm last night I've been sitting here in my cube. The company meeting is today and buses leave at 8am for Safeco. They will pay me overtime if I go. Do I fight sleep and go or do I just go home and rest?
This task leads to interesting questions. How much of my health am I willing to risk for the sake of some cash? And will that extra cash just go to more beer and/or poker? Sitting in a cold stadium for hours without rest and trying to at least look alert may not be the best impression that I want to give our management team. I could get sick as well.
There's a lot at risk here. Well not really. I'll go and try and make up the sleep tonight. Everyone has a price and mine's really low.
