So yesterday sucked.
First my hours at work were cut back yet another half-hour, for a grand total of 20 a week. And that sucks. I mean it REALLY sucks. Looks like my ongoing hope of finally becoming full-time is officially dead, despite what my well-intentioned boss says.
According to her, this was another case of her boss micromanaging. He saw that I was working a whole extra half hour a day, and that simply could not be! So I got screwed. Again.
I saw this as another sign to get the hell out of there. But when I told my boss I didn’t know how long I could last, she begged me to hold on and that SHE WOULD GET ME HOURS! I’ve heard that before, too. I occasionally get a fill-in shift, but it’s not enough and it’s not steady. I need both.
And as usual, probably won’t get either.
So I’m starting to look into what’s out there. K thinks I won’t have a problem. I don’t know.
I wish the writing thing would work out. I haven’t heard from anybody I sent to over the past couple of days. And I’m having trouble finding time to write. I don’t like it and will try to change that.
Then the day got worse when I went to pick up my bike. It’s been in the shop for about a month, or at least it feels like a month.
After paying way too much, I started to ride home. That’s when the pedals started to skip and the rear brake sounded like a screeching cat.
A quick ride back to the shop, a quick adjusting of the brake and a quick examination of the pedal mechanism, and I’m told it needs yet ANOTHER part, and that getting it will take another week. Jeebus.
So for now, I look for work while doing my work and the usual work.
