  1. The lesson for this week

    If I had to put into words what I was taught this week, it would be that while patience is a virtue, it doesn't hold a candle to persistence.

    I had a good week.

  2. Two months later...

    So I'll start at the top with the updates.

    The date didn't happen. I got a "let's be friends for now" letter that mostly cited her schedule making it impossible to have the dinner anytime soon. To her credit, she's not 100% wrong there. She's holding down 2 jobs (1 full time, 1 part time) and acting in 2 local community plays. Once the plays conclude in late October, she'll have about a week of relative freedom before schooling starts up again. To save everyone time reading, ...

  3. Date update

    Date/grill event went well. I did up a leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic and we all ate outside on the deck.

I'm at least getting regular relief 2 or 3 nights a week and he's not so cavalier about cancelling or moving my day off without making sure it's okay with me.

    Payroll is a different issue. Still bad. No effort to fix it. So I edited the letter to remove the things that were addressed ...

  5. A new dawn

    The blog addition to Graffes is pretty neat. It'll certainly give me a way to vent without clogging up the forums with my own bloggish work drama.

    So after exploring my options on the back pay I'm owed (covered in my November rant, http://www.graffe.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54726), I've elected to put all my current grievances into a letter, including a summary of the outstanding wages, and send it certified to the owner and manager. This is actually the first step in the state ...
