I built an Adirondack chair for a friend at work and brought it to the
office for him. My boss came in my office today and asked me a few
questions about how much I spent on materials and how long it took to
build a chair. I told her I had about $25 in materials in each one
and I could build two in a day.
After a few minutes she came back and asked if I could build a couple
of them to be auctioned off for a charity fund raiser at work. She
said I would be given money for the materials. Spare time is pretty
hard to come by, but she is a good boss and the charity is deserving
so I agreed to build the chairs.
"Just tell me when you need to take the day out of the office to build
them. You can do it on company time." Hot damn! A whole,
uninterrupted day in the gara...er, shop and I get paid for it. Like
I said, she's a good boss.
