I knew it was a bad sign that the manager wanted to talk to me. This is just a shitty-ass month at work all around.

I was asked to cover a night class tomorrow night, in addition to the class I'm teaching in the morning. No big deal, right? One night class as a sub, then back to just my daytime schedule.

Well, now the teacher for the night class has called and said that she will no longer be teaching the night class- at all- because she doesn't feel as though she knows as much as the students do. (We're talking about shit that she's NOT TEACHING. So what if they know more than you about subject matter OTHER than what you're covering?)

Guess who's the only person who can take her place teaching night class all next week in addition to day classes- i.e., fourteen hour days?

That's just crazy man. On the bright side...big paycheck, no?

That's to say if you make it through the week with sanity intact to enjoy it. Ugh.

It took a little nudging, but she did just that.

I look at it this way- how many full time instructors do they have? Two. Two, that happen to be dating. Each other. Minna is the queen of application classes, nailing each and every one with high marks. The list of classes I teach for them is frighteningly long, and I'm booked solid through the end of November with high end, high-profit classes.

Every contractor they've found, with the intent to move into a full time position has been a bomb. They've either sucked, gotten a different job, or pussed out on a class (like the one that's causing this dickage to begin with). Every interview/test-teach has either gone poorly, or promptly ended when the salary was discussed- and the prospect found it lacking.

They do not want us unhappy.

Oh, and once I get my paperwork straightened out, I'm going to be one of the two MCTs they have to have in order to keep their Microsquish partnership (which conveys all sorts of business advantages). In short, if I were to up and leave in a huff, they'd be soooooo damn screwed.
