Good Evening from PHILADELPHIA!!!!!
As you can see I am still alive.
And I type that in all seriousness.
The 2nd-Custodian has tested positive for the Chinavirus and is no longer at the Dayjob.
I on the other hand found that My Paycheck was normal-time instead of the pandemic time-&-a-half, which I was none too pleased about, however...?
I definitely made it clear I was pissed, without going above-n-beyond unnecessarily.
Got on the phone with payroll.
Got it sorted out!
And it'll be on MY NEXT CHECK.
This however didn't change the Fact that last time I'd typed to you I was planning on picking up some new expansion-drives. Because the pandemic has a lot of the big named stores cuttin deals & such and I'm, fortunately or unfortunately, still working.
So I intended to take full-advantage, as I should, since I'm risking My Life with the job I am doing. Mind you!?
As of THIS TYPING?
Since the 2nd-Custodian is down and off-Dayjob?
Then as I type this?
Nobody has been doing any work to keep the Dayjob in order since 2nd-Custodian NORMALLY COVERS WEEKENDS. And due to Good Friday, and GOOD SENSE ON MY PART AFTER THEY SCREWED UP MY CHECK, and tried to convince it was no big deal, by the way.
So since Good Friday, nobody has been there keeping things in order!
So I'm EXPECTING the TRASH TO BE PILED UP.
The restrooms UNCLEANED.
The SUPPLIES EXHAUSTED.
And NOTHING HAVE BEEN SWEPT, MOPPED, DISINFECTED, NOR ANY MAINTENANCE CHECKS DONE TO MAKE SURE THE BUILDING IS IN ORDER AS WELL.
So IF YOU ARE WONDERING?
That IS ONE DIFFERENCE, between a CUSTODIAN AND A JANITOR.
Janitor's SIMPLY CLEAN.
They DO NOT CHECK THE BUILDING FOR MAINTENANCE ISSUES AND DO REPAIR REPORTS NOR DO THEY HAVE ACCESS TO VEHICLES NOR CAN THEY MAKE REQUEST FOR SUPPLIES. PUT IN BUDGET REQUESTS FOR NECESSARY ITEMS TO IMPROVE THE BUILDING'S VALUE AND/OR UPKEEP!
Check the Grounds.
Submit reports on the Grounds conditions and then submit requests-n-proposals on bringing in equipment and/or outsourced services to get the grounds in order, etc-etc!
This is part of the reason why this pandemic has really ABSORBED A LOT OF MY TIME, ENERGY AND ATTENTION!
Where most of the time BY THE TIME I GET HOME, I'm tired.
SUSPECT HEALTH DOES NOT HELP EITHER.
This also means I AM MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE CHINAVIRUS AS WELL, due to My Suspect Health.
So of course last thing I wanna see is;
MY CHECK IS FUCKED UP.
Once I got off the phone with payroll...?
I simply reminded myself that this was why I was hesitant to take this job. Regardless of how many Black-Americans lie and claim getting these types of Dayjobs is so great.
Until one remembers how horribly bad Black-American History is when it comes to Us being able to make money without extracurricular bullshit going on 24/7 because We're Black.
This is why one should never TALK ABOUT how important their history is, but then KEEP MAKING EXCUSES FOR NOT ACTUALLY ENACTING CUSTOMS-N-CULTURE AND A CODE OF CONDUCT THAT HONESTLY ACTS UPON IT WITH ZERO TOLERANCE FOR ANYTHING ELSE.
I got up friday and headed out instead of going in to work.
Since Friday was a paid holiday for Us anyway.
I'd INITIALLY INTENDED TO GO IN, but thanks to My Youngest Brother, who pointed out that I've had PAYROLL PROBLEMS LONG BEFORE THE PANDEMIC STARTED.
And everytime it has always been AN ISSUE to get them straightened out.
I haven't been paid properly for working during holidays anyway, which is HOLIDAY PAY + OVERTIME.
So once he reminded Me of THIS FACT...?
I made sure to follow protocol and simply TAKE THE DAY OFF.
Instead of SET MYSELF UP for more PAYROLL-FRUSTRATIONS.
I got up early and headed out.
Was only able to pick-up ONE, when I wanted TWO.
Of course I was greeted by ALL KINDS OF DEEPLY-DISCOUNTED DEVICES, especially podcasting equipment!
But with My Check NOT BEING WHAT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO and the Fact that I DO NOT TRUST many of the companies who are currently forgoing payments and late fees and such...?
I decided that PAYING MY BILLS WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAN "the good graces" being given by these utility companies under the current pandemic.
I've since spent yesterday and today transferring files and reading up on storylines and plot details and hashing them out and getting them onto the new external hard drive!
So that's it, for now.
Lemme get back to what I was doing.
And I'll type to you again.
Sooner than you think....

Is where I will give generalized updates!
