One of the benefits of this subbing gig is to accept or decline assignments. I can also cancel previously accepted assignments. While I haven’t done that yet, the chance to trade a half day/half pay job for a full day or a better class assignment is a good option to have.
Last night an hour after I accepted a half day job at the country club school, I got a call for a full day assignment at the school from hell in the other district.
So after weighing all the pros/cons, pluses/minuses, ups/downs it took a long millisecond to decide an extra ½ day in hell for the additional $50 just wasn’t worth it…..today!
I’m sure the districts frown on the practice of canceling accepted jobs. If true, it’s not serious enough to offer extra “combat pay” for the more difficult schools or higher daily rates to keep us exclusive to one district.
I think this is the first day of this school year that there have been NO calls for an assignment. I turned down an assignment yesterday because Claudette and I both had dentist appointments.
One of the reasons I started subbing, is to supplement our income to backfill the “unexpected” bills that come with age (ours, the car and the house).
Instead of adding the bills up in $US, which is very depressing, I now tend to calculate our expenses in $SD (Dollars per Subbing Day)
This week’s total:
Tires for the car: 7 $SD
Dentist bill for drilling, filling and crowning my tooth stump: 7.5 $SD
Another dentist bill for drilling, filling and crowning Claudette’s tooth stump (same tooth location): 7.5 $SD
Now, doesn’t 22 $SD sound much better than 2175.00 $US?
