Well. The temp agency called to tell me the boring temp job didn't want me there anymore. Hmnmm. Perhaps a direct link between calling in sick Friday and being fired on Monday? The world may never know. Since the recruiter has been very bad about keeping track of where (and sometimes who) I am, I called to verify and it turned out to be true. They found someone willing to come in for $8 an hour which I have to imagine is about half of what they were paying for me. I'm kind of bummed about it, but it does give us the Mark Line of the Week ™ "Well, the thing about temp jobs is that they seldom love you back"
