Now I am sitting around at work, though I have clocked off, because I am waiting for some lady to get here who has a check for me. Actually she’s had a check for me for weeks, but since they keep scheduling me midnights, I leave before she gets in… and in the scales of my mind, $30-some is not worth the inconvenience of driving all the way to work either after I’ve already left or on a day off. But my sup’s been getting on my case to pick it up, and he’s super nice; plus I need money something awful this week; so I am endeavoring to stick around until I see light in that office.

It’s been nine minutes so far.
