Okay so starting the 24th, I will have a new job, however ever since I have got the good news, I have been worrying about the “old” job, especially since boss has decided NOT to replace me.
No one here is capable of doing all of the jobs I do and do it efficiently. Not to say that it cannot be done but face it, boss is a blond nitwit and cannot even get to work on time, let alone get the paper out on time. Heck, it took her 2 hours to do a simple deposit! Only 4 checks!
I do have to have a second job, no doubts about it, I just cannot pay all of my bills on 30 hours. I have an application at the gas station and the burger joint down the road. B has frowned about fast food but I don’t mind flipping burgers. Much worse jobs are out there.
So, boss asked if I might work part time. Well, actually she asked if I would still write my column for the paper then went on to basically ask me if I could fit in some hours here. I found myself agreeing.
I can put in a couple of hours on Mondays and come in early on Tuesday at about 7. This gives me time to build the pages I need to, dummy the ads and format copy. I can come in on weekends to build ads and will come in to make deposits. I won’t be working more than 10-15 hours total but that will cover my odd expenses.
That does not mean that if an opportunity to work a few more hours at the gas station or the burger joint comes up, I will turn it down. I need to get a bit of savings built up. If I can, that is.
For now, I don’t have to worry about that hole in my income. It will mean that I always carry a notebook with me and perhaps my future netbook at all times. But, you know, I do that anyway
