So after (only one week), 200 Advils and cold medicine, and anything else you can name, they have it, 100 daily meds, a 100 headaches, 3 dozen cut toes and feet, a dozen sprains, a couple fevers, a few head injuries, a concussion, one real hemilech in the cafe, ive hugged a dozen, said goodbye to a few staff, cleaned the place like martha stewart. I then asked my part-time aide when do I get Paid??? She used to be a camper and rose up a rank or two says, nonchalantly, I dont know, dont have a clue, and walks off to tend to director assisting things for closing. After an hour resting, campers mostly gone, I seek the director who says, I thought you had already left, whats her name should have told you that accounting mails it out to you. Really? Also I heard about the boys life you saved, do you want any snacks for your long drive back home? Also hope you can come back next summer and tell your friends about us. Standing there with a back strain, red eyes, 4 hours of sleep that feels like two, did I mention exhausted, wondering how I will make it home safely, half bowl of cereal eaten, loved by campers though and thanked by many youth counselors, I thank him and head out to my dusty, unfamiliar-looking car.. No travel or gas reimbursement. My last camp wrote me out a check right then and there and handed it to me before I left. Taxes working in another state was hefty. When do YOU get paid, before you leave or is it mailed? Are hefy taxes taken out? Is travel or gas paid for YOUR trip? I never asked because I thought they all paid you after you finished, silly me.
I see many read
