Today, however, Mr. Roseneau made me an offer: stay on at the job, which will be reduced from the 32 hours i currently receive (while being paid for 40, and thank you kindly for that!) to 12...basically 2 6 hour shifts a week on whatever days I choose. Under normal circumstances, this would be a crushing blow, for how could I possibly support myself on 12 hours of work a week? Ah, but once again I have the generosity of Unemployment policies to thank! Since I will be earning less than 100 dollars a week from this position henceforth, I'm still entitled to the full amount of my unemployment benefit! Hip-hip huzzah!!! Maybe I can actually start paying off my asinine credit card debt!
The month of June, and 2009 in general, had treated me quite roughly thus far. Lost my job, lost my girlfriend...if I had a dog to shoot, I could have completed the country & western trifecta. Yet now, suddenly, things are starting to look up. I am thankful.
NOT THAT I'M SUCH A SOLIPSIST TO ASCRIBE THEOLOGICAL PROOF TO ONE LUCKY BREAK. Heavens no! For that, I direct your attention once more to the flickering pixels of YouTube. Bear witness to God's hand in motion:
