Today, I came in to work early at a restaurant to help out. I stocked, baked pies for the next day, cleaned and set over 50 tables, and vacuumed the entire two stories. When I went to send an order for the first customer of mine, I realized I hadn't even clocked on. Four ½ hours of work wasted. FML

Ask your boss to adjust your hours. Simple solution.

Not wasted. Your boss needs to have a "plan B" for people who forget to clock in. By law you aren't required to work for free even if you forgot to clock in.

Ask your boss to adjust your hours. Simple solution.

Exactly what I was about to say. It's simple enough to do. I also think they are lucky to have you in there service.

Yeah, I agree with you guys. I once forgot to clock in for a whole shift and didn't even realize until I got my paycheck! My boss just put those hours on the next check for me after confirming I really did work that day.

Normally I just have to go to my HRM and have her adjust my hours if I forget to clock in or out.

Though it sucks that you tried to be a keener, a lot of companies will not pay you for working extra time if you were not asked to do overtime. Last place I worked at that had a punch clock would not do that, the managers just checked the card to ensure I was punching in and out around my scheduled hours.

At least your boss will appreciate your extra work.

I don't understand why this was voted down

I'm sure your boss will understand if you talk to them and show them your work.

If he/she doesn't believe you, you have an FML posted to prove it. Maybe? I dunno good luck OP.

Uhh. A bit off-topic but your hat is bigger than your head.

Omg 25 is bieber#2....

42 - shouldn't a hat be bigger than your head? I think you might have issues putting it on or wearing it if it was smaller...

63 Thats exactly what I was just thinking! He does look a lot like Bieber... Maybe that's his doppelgänger. :)

Hey I'm sure your boss noticed and is impressed

I never understand why people always say they wasted hours when not clicking in is an easy fix. Talk to your boss. He or she will understand.

If someone knew you were there that early, say another colleague, talk to the chief and get them to validate it. All is not lost OP.

Hopefully there were other people around who could verify you were there! If not....I'm sorry, that sucks dude :/

Let your boss know! He'll be happy to have an efficient worker and include your pay in the work hours.

These fmls are so stupid. If you don't talk to your boss about it than you deserve to not get paid for being a moron. Time fixes were the easiest thing to fix when I worked an hourly job.
