Italians quoted #4
Co-worker: So you know that today is your last day, right?
Me: No, did you tell me that already?
Co-worker: You know, there aren't any boats and the few that may come I can handle myself.
Me: OH MY GOD! NO MORE PAYCHECK! WHAT AM I GOING TO DO? YOU COULD HAVE TOLD ME A FEW DAYS AGO!! I NEED A
ATFORWEEKS! THIS IS REALLY NOT HELPFUL.
Me: (What I ACTUALLY said) Um...uh, ok.
I went to work the other day (Sept 1st) to find out that my work season was over. There are hardly any boats now and there just wasn't enough for me to do. I was expecting a couple more weeks of reduced hours, then no job, but this was a reduction that I didn't see coming. This is how it happens in Ischia. As soon as the calendar strikes September 1st, the summer is over, the weather changes, dance clubs close, and poor Texan girls become unemployed.
Wish me luck, as soon as I get back from the beach Ima gonna get me a wine job...I hope.
