@seenthelight

You probably guessed correctly.


My wife used to work in retail, and they did exactly that to her.



Health insurance and student loans are the biggest scams of all time.

@subman

I wonder what they would do if a sub cancelled on them 5 minutes before they were to report?

Unless it was an emergency, they'd most certainly ban us for life.

Thank you for the pep talk at the end, subasaurus. We get by with a little help from our friends.

Any time, my friend.

And I like The Beatles/Joe Cocker reference:cool:

One benefit of being removed from a job

Just got cancelled on for a job I scheduled last night.

Usually I get super "triggered" when that happens. Not gonna lie. Stinks to get all ready for work and then find out you could have...

Same here, but only on my break periods.

What else is there to do really if the teacher doesn't have any interesting books to read?

I read the news on my phone.

@luv2teach

Thanks.

I too would prefer being paid less to being treated with disdain.

Don't get me wrong, I love money, lol. But respect is far more important to me than a big paycheck.

Just to clarify, I don't use social media either. Hate it.

But it sounded like she was on break in the staffroom I thought?

I don't see posting cat pictures as being an offense worth firing...

Yep, junk jobs are awful. You know you're in for a dramatic day if you accept one of those doozies. Better bring coffee and aspirin.

Yep.

They wouldn't have a "sub shortage" if they actually disciplined their students and respected their subs.

Gotta love it when students whine about their teachers to us.

There is something seriously wrong with the school system these days. It's super toxic. :(

As a sub I've been banned from a school before simply for being stuck in traffic.... Due to a car accident in the dead of winter. I even notified the school I was stuck and they still banned me.

Nope, not just you. I have a job set for tomorrow and definitely dreading it too. I know it should be fine, but the break throws my brain off so much. The paranoia is strong for me.

Sadly, that era is over. We're now in the era of liability and paranoia.

Most schools are "parent pleaser" schools now.

Remember they can cancel on us at the drop of a hat, and they sometimes do.

I'd only feel bad if you were a frequent canceller type, and it sounds like you definitely aren't. ...

Some kids are just evil. No way around it. They might come from broken homes or just suck by choice.

Remember to tell yourself every single day this magic power phrase:

Coming back to subbing after any holiday is always quite rough for me. It feels like I've forgotten how to sub.

The public doesn't understand.

It's not just the old cliche "Kids these days."

We're seriously dealing with some broken souls. Damaged goods.
