I am in a job that requires a certain amount of coverage during work hours. I came in one morning, and our closing person had called out. My manager asked me to cover for them, work a 12-hour shift. HOWEVER since we were trying to avoid overtime, my manager instead had me clock in and out all day, calling it a "split shift" so I was only paid for 9.5 hours, but was there a total of 12 hours. When I was off the clock, I wasn't working..it was like taking a bunch of lunch breaks all day. It sucked, but I knew they needed me, so I did it.
Anyway, the next week, I found out I was getting a writeup (from my manger's manager) for the 1.5 hours of overtime I had accrued, because my manager didn't get approval beforehand. I explained that my manager had approved the shift, and even told me I had to do it (I just wanted to work the 12 hours straight) and we actually avoided as much overtime as possible, but the writeup stands. Do you think that's really fair? I'm pretty annoyed but I can't tell if I'm being butt sore or not.

How much water do you drink a day? Is all that water good for you anyway?
Do you like to shower/bathe at night or in the morning?
