The Unemployment Chronicles, Chapter 10

The administrative assistant from my ex-employer just called me — on a Saturday afternoon. How's that for unexpected?

It seems AA is going to be at the office later this afternoon and wondered if I wanted to come by and pick up the ficus tree and stand I left behind when I got the axe. (I don't.) She then filled me in on changes that have taken place since I left. There have been plenty, and let's just say not all of them are popular.

AA also wanted to find out how I'm doing, employment-wise and otherwise. Knowing that she will spread the news, I was proud to tell her the truth: I'm doing great. If you hear differently, please let me know.

In fact, today I applied for another part-time contract position for which I am the perfect candidate. I hope the hiring manager notices that. She should; I've gotten pretty outspoken about my credentials. Hey, they're good. Really good. I'm not going to whisper.

While we're talking about contract and freelance work, let me tell you, you'd be amazed at how many people and organizations are willing to tell you the Secrets of How to Make Huge Frakkin' Money Working From Home — for $29.95 or so. So far, I've managed to resist giving them my credit card number.

Alrighty then! Sprite, my girth-enhanced cat, is perched directly atop my bladder. Gotta go.
