Something's got to give.

I didn't realize how long it's been since I posted - mostly because of the sheer about of NyQuil and DayQuil I've been taking. Because seriously, I've had FIVE fucking colds in the last two months. FIVE. How the hell does that even happen? Shouldn't I be running out of rhinovirus strains I haven't encountered before? Christ on a pineapple.

Between the constant sickness, driving a different car that gets crappy gas mileage, and not making as much as my pizza gig as I used to .... yeah, time to say goodbye to the pizza delivery. It took me a month of rolling the idea around in my head before I was willing to commit to it - it's kind of terrifying to have the restaurant be my only job again. But I just am worn right the fuck out. Two years of juggling two schedules, two uniforms, two sets of rules, two sets of co-workers and bosses and their idiosyncrasies ... stick a fork in me, I think I'm extra well done.

Saturday will be my last shift delivering pizza; after that, I'll be working at the restaurant more, but I'm hoping the overall simplification will mean I'm not as tired and constantly fucking sick!

Take care things will get better for you. I read your previous post about the $15 an hour. I agree with you 100%. I think and I may be wrong but don't you have rent, gas, living expenses as well. I thought all those things were taken care of in the military. Anyway me being a bit of a socialist anyway I think we should all be paid more. All the best and get well.

FIVE COLDS??!! You have no choice but to ditch one 'em! I've almost always had two or more jobs and it is exhausting keeping two sets of everything straight. Good for you for taking the plunge. I fully support your choice. :)

Feel better, and cheers!
