I am ornery today; I just have to admit it. My parttime work teaching mentally challenged adults does not bring in substantial income. There is no bonus because this type of work often just doesn't have bonuses. I received an email from my supervisor telling me that all of the Adult Basic Education teachers in this area will be taking a Christmas vacation from Dec. 21 through Jan. 2. Since I am not paid when I do not work, (no PTO), not only do I receive no bonus but lose several days of work which does not exactly help my income. I am too depressed to figure out the loss, but what was meant for good....a nice vacation.....is going to make it tough to pay for heating early next year. Thank you for letting me vent. I guess I am just tired tonight.

    Losing a paycheck during a holiday season or any time hurts a lot. Feel free to vent. There are still stores in this area who are asking for more help during the holiday season, do you think you can do that to help your income at this time? Stores here are like Sears and others.
