the answer would have been

April 8th, 2011 at 09:22 pm

Apparently, there has been a deal struck and the government will not be shut down.

DH told me that, yes, he was considered essential and would have had to report to work to answer phones. His supervisor, however, wasn't. So the weird answer would be that the mice are essential, but the cat ... not so much.

In other fiscal news, I moved $300 more dollars into the credit union accounts - I have about $400 in each. Last week, I decided that my summer project was to prep things and move my checking/savings/ from Chase to the credit union. Haven't gotten totally screwed yet from Chase, and we aren't talking about the bulk of my money (just paycheck and tip box savings), but I figure that its only a matter of time.

The only hitch to this project was that I never got the credit union ATM card to work. Re-asked for a new ATM. We will see.

    Interesting - no supervisor needed.

    It was a bit too interesting to me also. The break point was working the phones. Turns out that DH, DH's lead, and DH's direct supervisor would have had to come in - all work phones. The supervisor's supervisor, who didn't work the phones, would not come in.

    Extra telling and perhaps the most interesting to everybody here is that the quality control staff, who monitor calls (remember this call may be monitored for quality assurance purposes) would also not be able to come in during the shutdown. Cavaet emptor indeed.
