My problem with the 150% is that it was given away by a bunch of socialists. In return for that, we got the pay scale you see on your paycheck twice a month. Had they gotten something of substance I think people would be happy with no 150%

If I were a manager and read Lobaeux's post, I'd think you were getting a pretty good deal.

Thats over 6 hours / day in a 31 day month. You must be getting a heck of a transition monthly, or you're bidding from a different package than I am.
Yep! Transition. 20 days off this month, 87 hours of credit. Not every month, but I average about 17 days a month, around 85 hours.

Standard FLL bidding. It very much helps to live in base.

If you aren't doing Daily Opentime from your swimming pool, you definitely aren't doing it right.
What is flicaflac?

Pretty good considering the FLL avg line credit has been setting around 74 hours.

Is this a joke or a real thing? (I don't mean where to buy it, lol) but the program itself?

Usually after transition conflicts and if a JRM gets me extra credit, I'll drop everything until I'm back down to 72 credit and keep the days off.

That leaves you plenty of time to raise your unicorns then.

I have heard it may be real. Not sure and not interested, my goal is to stay away from work, not run to it.
