A Noticeable Lack Of Warning

| Working | November 14, 2014

(I am working two part-time jobs, at a bakery and a bookstore. Then, the owner of the bookstore offers me a full-time position.)

Owner: “Have you let the bakery know you’re leaving yet?”

Me: “Yes, I stopped by there this morning and gave them my two-weeks’ notice.”

Owner: “Oh, good. Well, I was looking at the numbers and I can’t afford to take you on full-time. All I can give you is 36 hours a week and no benefits.”

(Coincidence that she waited to drop that on me until she knew I’d given my notice? Not a chance.)
