pay day: july

this pay day was one of the firsts that went very well. it's how i expected it to occur the last 7 months but was always disappointed. this month i didn't have to track down and practically sit on my boss until she paid me.

i received a text message from her saying that she had my july salary and she told me where she could be found. i told her what students i was teaching and at what time and i asked her to find me. like clock-work she text me in the afternoon, met me, and gave me my july salary...all without having to ask, even once.

is this the beginning of a new employer employee relationship or is she worried i'll leave?

i suspect it's the latter.

for the month of july she offered to pay me my regular salary (even though i didn't teach) with my promise that over time (the next 4 months) i will slowly make up this time. in other words she would front me the money. i told her i'd rather not take the july forwarded payment but instead i'll make up the hours and be paid for them after the work is completed.

Your cynicism cracks me up. Not that I think it's unwarranted. Obviously, you have good reason to find this woman suspect. I just think it's funny when you get cranky or suspicious or angry, considering your usual demeanor.
