isla tortuga waiting blues

gosh i need a break.

every single day at work is bringing more and more difficult happenings.... for example, the last day I worked I was told that corporate demands my resignation from my part time job at the sister facility in Mystic. Because:


'the possibility"??? Ok, at the beginning of this year, my boss had no problem paying out roughly 100K to other people in overtime, of which 435.00 went to me. The main bulk of the money went to a handfull of folks, and I just happened to be offered a chance to pick up time TWICE. Ahha, 16 whole hours. Oh and I am totally allowed to pick up a shift at my home facility, no problems with that. The only thing is they never offer me the time because the scheduler is too busy giving the hours to her favorites.

And now that the economy is in crappy shape and I am gong to have trouble getting another part time job, I am told that I must resign from the one place that can throw me a couple of shifts a month if I'm lucky?

I'm ready to go to the press.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
