Today, the power went out at work. As everyone left the building to go home, the owner came in to inform me that, since the phones were on a battery back up, I would be staying to man them. The phones rang 2 times in the 4 hours I sat in the dark by myself. Both times were telemarketers. FML

Do you get paid hourly? If so, I would've thought of something. A building with no one else in it...think of the possibilities XD But if you're not paid blows.

That ain't working that's the way ya do it.
Your money for nothing and your chicks for free!

You should have placed huge orders with each of the telemarketers.

Four hours, alone, in the dark? How many times did you diddle yourself?

I'm getting paid right now to make sure a building doesn't burn down and read FMLs. And by make sure it doesn't burn down I mean call the fire department in case it catches.

@OP: Really, this isn't an FML. You're getting paid to do nothing. That's awesome! While it might be boring and lonely, at least it's money that the others are missing out on. Maybe you should push overtime for it?

It's not that hard to get a job, stop being picky and just go get one. I see help wanted ads on Craigslist and on CareerBuilder all the time. All but one of my friends who were laid off during the recession were able to go and find new manufacturing jobs within a couple of months of being laid off.
