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!
