Workin' in a Coal Mine
This shit is rough, man. On the one hand, they still haven’t paid me, that’s three months and counting; on the other hand, this entire week I was virtually alone in the office (the occasional student research assistant) with nothing to do but work on my novel and write poetry, surf the Internet, be entertaining on this space right here, and eat delicious lunches for fifty cents each. The wild part is that I am actually employed at a high status job with a (local scale) very nice income. I’m almost sure they’ll pay me eventually, almost.
