And swank timing, too, because my father just kicked into high-gear self-described Ebenezer Scrooge mode. I've spent a lot of money on health accessories lately (prescription meds that my insurance no longer covers, swanky supplements prescribed by new age docs, etc) with the understanding that my parents would subsidize part of it. I'm sure they still would, if I brought it up, but if my father is feeling psycho-poor right now it's probably better for everyone's general sanity if I just not go there. Plus, they are letting me live here and eat their food rent-free so it's not exactly like I'm NOT getting way more handouts than any (almost) 22-year-old deserves. And now I have a job to fund my asthma-drug habit! WOO!
I'm pretty sure that, since I'm being hired as a temp and for a different position, I won't get the wage I've worked up to over the years of working there, but really, babysitting money is better than no money.
