Joni and I were talking this afternoon, trying to figure out how to buy some supplies and how to pay a Handyman we hired. I ended up telling her: "If we build it, the money will come".
I walked inside the cabin to call the Handyman to arrange a meeting. A message bleeped in my ear, so I checked it.
Call work. I did.
"Hi Allan, we are uncomfortable with the inexperienced staff we have working this weekend, so we would like to offer you a bonus if you would work a double on Saturday and Sunday", the Hospital Staffer said. "You will get the normal time and a half and double time--plus an extra bonus".
"How much of a bonus?", I said.
The bonus was enough to force me to drive the three and a half hours to the Napa Valley. My walks tomorrow and Sunday will be on the Unit (given my rules). Work a double shift--no walk.
Assuming I survive the next couple of days, the money has come to get the Handyman to complete what I am too darned inept to do.
"If you build it, the money will come". Every EcoSocialist has his price.
