"...another reason I'm intrigued with the hanged of Salem, especially the women, is that a number of them aroused suspicion in the first place because they were financially independent, or sharp-tongued, or kept to themselves. In other words, they were killed off for the same sort of life I live right now but with longer skirts and fewer cable channels." Sarah Vowell, The partly cloudy patriot.

Too lazy to whine chez phantom's

I have worked for the past 6 days. Each day, I work between 4 to 11 hours. I have no idea each day how much I will be working - so I can't make plans. I have worked for the past 4 weekends for them as well.*

I have yet to get paid. I was supposed to get paid on wednesday - but my supervisor forgot to submit my hours in time. I may get paid on friday, if the payroll person can regain access to the system (?!).

The grant I am helping with was to be turned into the university clearance people on monday. But sunday night, it wasn't ready, so he asked me to come back the next day. On monday, it was still not done, so he asked me to come back on tuesday. Tuesday, it was still not done, so he asked me to come back today. As far as I knew today, it was going to get done - so I set up a job interview for tomorrow. Afterwards my supervisor asked me to come back tomorrow since the grant isn't done. I said I couldn't, and he said, "But the grant is due tomorrow! I need your help!" Okay, but I had thought the grant was due today (and yesterday, and monday) ... so how was I to know that?

He wants me to come in after my interview - I don't want to. I am so thankful for the money - believe me. However (as occurred in jan-march), my motivation to come every day and put everything on hold and be super flexible really decreases when I cannot even get any answers as to when I will get paid.

Plus, the money I am owed this week will barely cover the train fare I have paid just to come back and forth from the job - I can't afford to keep doing that until I at least know when I will get paid. My next check will be a lot bigger - but I won't see that till mid july - and that seems so far away as to have no effect on my current work ethic.

I know I will go in tomorrow - but I am exhausted and need a break from all of it. I need to get some space to think through the job offer and see what my options are. I need some sleep, and I need to not have to be there right after my job interview.

I also need them to pay me. I had been trying to not buy anything at all in order to make the money I have left last as long as possible (there is a chance I won't get paid till next friday). Unfortunately, that meant the lunch I brought with me today was maybe not really edible. In fact, after a few bites, I got scared and stopped. I got some groceries tonight, so don't worry.

* for the record, I don't mind working a lot - it's more the sheer uncontrollability of it (never knowing if I will be asked to work the next day and for how long - and how long the work will last) and the complete lack of financial reward. I'm seriously the most flexible and amenable worker ever - I do everything they ask, I have initiative, I'm cheerful, I work to be helpful, and I am fast. I'm not demanding, I never ask for a day off, I never say no** All I want is for them to pay me.

**except today when my supervisor asked me to write the rationale for one of his experiments - and I balked - there is no way in hell I could! I simply don't know this stuff at all! I'd seriously likely just plagiarize from wikipedia and would have no way of knowing if what i was stealing was even correct, relevant, or if it in any way provided rationale for the experiment. He also asked for my help in writing the significance section, and I said, "we are studying the kidney. The kidney helps you go pee. If you can't pee, that sucks!" He's lucky I didn't add in "OMG!!! Ponies!"***

*** did anyone else get the email from NOW today about george bush dreaming about ponies? I'll have to post it and make sure phantom sees it.
