Well, I guess I could start at being born with a male body and a female brain and then list all the times that I've been screwed over because of it, but I don't have enough time to make the list, and you don't have enough time to read it if I did. Let's just say that I have been screwed in life, over and over, and leave it at that. Here's the latest time.
About 6 months ago, those of you who read my y360 blog may remember me saying that my daughters little cleaning company had moved up the ladder when the middle man was cut out between us and the Jan-Pro cleaning company who has the original contract with Triumph the airplane parts company were I clean. I was told at that time that I was going to get a 'substantial' raise in pay since it meant about 2k a month more in my daughters pocket, but I would have to wait until the first of the year. Their, her and her husband, having to buy into the Jan-Pro franchise was the reason for me waiting. I waited, expecting maybe 4 or 5 hundred a month more on my check. Today I was given a 100 dollar Christmas bonus and told at the same time that my raise was a f****** 100 dollars a month! That's before taxes. This isn't the first time I've been lied to by them, it's happened time and time again. I worked the rest of the day pissed, and as we were walking out I explained, in a very calm way, that I thought it sucked. Apparently, after she called her a** h*** husband, she then called my wife, her mother. She told her to let me know that that was the best they could do, they had bills. I make less than 1/4 of what they get for this job, my only job. I put in 80% of the labor, which the money is for only labor, supplies are furnished by Triumph. The entire situation boils down to them knowing that it would be next to impossible for me to get another job here and remain in transition. So I get screwed yet again, and again by part of my own family. Y'all girls who lament about your family not wanting anything to do with you when you transition don't know how lucky you are. It is much better to have that a done deal so you can get on with your life anew, than it is to be used by them because they know they can do it and you have very little recourse. I'm going to try and find another job, and until I find one try and keep my mouth shut to keep the one I have. But believe me, new job, bye entire family. And Patty Lou is in agreement with that idea. God I love that woman...
(anybody own a cleaning company? I will re-locate, far from family)
