Want to know one of the worst things about being underemployed? When you get sick, you don’t get paid. And when you work at a library that actually cares about its appearance, when you’re sick and you sound sick or look sick, they send you home and you hope that they can reschedule you for the hours you’ve missed. That is, if you’re not still sick the next day and if the day after that isn’t the end of the pay period.
I guess I should take advantage of being sent home and go lie down 😦
