Not Too Stingy

The individual in whose employ I have been working for about four weeks now is not too stingy. In fact, he is rather generous. He has offered to pay me time-and-a-half for working on the weekends. The firm paid me four hours of overtime for staying beyond my normal hours last Friday to complete a project. They readily reimburse employees for mileage when we use our cars to travel on firm business.

When I mentioned to my dad the overtime I earned, he asked me why they were paying me time-and-a-half when I am a salaried employee. If they want to pay me overtime, I’m not going to argue with them. I can put it toward the clothes purchases I made last weekend that blew my budget.
