Writing

Last wednesday, I worked overtime untill 10 pm because there were too much documents needed to make which i needed to take out the next day. As the timing was be too short, i had to work overtime. Actually, i don’t often work overtime. i go off work at 7 pm gernerally . I think it’s my responsbility about the overtime, and i don’t complain about that as well if it is resonable even though no pay for overtime. But my boss hope me for overtime everyday, i think it is not necesary if there are not too much work to do.
