Blisters and a Raise!
Due to Holidays and snowdays, I have had a total of 5 days on the job since I started...three weeks ago...WOO HOO!
It's been an interesting adventure so far...some testing to see who I am, though nothing serious.
I have been given many names...all that have met my ears (so far) are just plain fun.
"Mrs. Marty"...(Marty is the original student supervisor)
"Good Cop"...as in good cop bad cop
and the most popular:
"Chippy's Mom"...Mark's wife, Chippy's mom....soon it will be Kallie's owner....Someday, I will be just ME, sigh....
I have connected with some fun and some attention grabbing kids...most are great. (Quite entertaining to watch a senior chug Coffee in order to avoid having to take it to the cafeteria to drink...HIS idea NOT mine!)
In the midst of it all, I have developed numerous blisters from three hours of walking/standing each day...Principal wasn't kidding when he said I would need a "thick skin"!!!
The best part, yet pretty funny....I got a raise!!!!
I had to check out that this wasn't a mistake, but it seems I am already worth a couple more dollars an hour than I was originally told.
I am not complaining and figure it is just Rhonda's great favor at the school rubbing off on me already. God is good, though I have to giggle...or is it 'laugh all the way to the bank'?
It really DOES PAY to know people!!!!
