I don’t know what to do!
I’m getting a little tired of my teaching job. I’m very tired of the no-shows. I schedule a week’s worth of classes and then four or five of the students don’t show up! Except for today when I needed one to not show up!
My son forgot his binder at home and I was going to bring it to his school between classes if one of my students didn’t show up for class. But the one day I need someone to bail on me, everybody shows up for class!
I need a job that’s flexible, one that I can stop doing at a moment’s notice if I’m needed elsewhere. I need a job I can pick up and put down anytime I want.
I used to drive for Lyft. That was a fun job. But, I discovered I was only driving for gas money and oil changes. So, I was literally and figuratively spinning my wheels!
I’ve got five minutes until the next student shows up. And, of course, they will show up. Dammit.
It’s not that I don’t like my job; I do like it. It’s flexible enough. I’m good at it. I guess I shouldn’t complain. But I’m good at that, too.
