There are lots of victims on my friends list. It seems like everyone is complaining about being "f---ed over" by their partner or ex or their employer or their former employer.

I could complain that I'm getting f---ed over, too. It was supposed to take two months to get hired here while I worked on a CSUS Foundation student contract. This week marks the beginning of my tenth month of waiting for that to happen. It's nobody's fault, except an overly-complicated hiring process burdened by state government bureaucracy, a hiring freeze, and yet another budget crisis.

The waiting was easy when I didn't really need the money. Now I rely on side-contracts to help make ends meet. Once I get hired, my pay will go up more than twenty thousand dollars. I'd be able to drive a new Civic and never have to worry about writing the rent check on the first. Then my side-contract money goes directly into the toy / credit improvement fund.

They're still not sure when I'm getting hired. They say by July 1st. I wouldn't be too surprised if that didn't happen.

But I'm not really complaining. I do have a job, my own business, a dependable car, a nice place to live, and enough money to pay the bills. Things could be a lot worse!

My new checks finally came today! And they even got the right name, address and account number on them. God bless you, Wells Fargo. It only took thirty days.

Now to pay those late bills.
