It never fails. Whenever I have something to do that can’t (or shouldn’t) be rescheduled, someone will call me for work.
This happens so consistently that I’m hesitant to schedule anything in advance anymore – doctor’s visits, vacations, car maintenance, tax appointments, dates.
Naturally, since I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow that I don’t want to reschedule, I got called for work by a best boy that I’ve had to turn down the past couple of times he’s tried to book me.
Although I hate turning down work, I’m sufficiently desperate to get my feet looked at that I bit the bullet and turned homeboy down again.
Did I mention that if one turns down work too often people will assume that one is never available and stop calling?
Dammit, dammit, dammit.
This podiatrist better be worth it.
