Mostly True Memoirs
I DON’T HAVE A CONTRACT WITH YOU
An English teaching account that I haven’t worked for in years has been contacting me to substitute.
“I don’t have a contract with you,” I always respond, “Please take me off your mailing list.”
They continue to send requests.
I am tempted to accept the job.
And then not show up.
What are they going to do?
Cancel my contract?
That might get me off their mailing list.
But I won’t do it.
The students would be the ones to suffer.
I always love the students, even if I don’t love the admin.
I have stopped responding to their requests.
I’m hoping that ignoring them will get me off their mailing list.
So far it hasn’t worked.
But I’ll keep trying.
Or not trying.
