The Everyday Life of Pathetic Fallacy

Out of doors is currently miserable. It’s been hot and muggy for weeks, but that has now devolved into rain. It isn’t even the good kind of rain that really gets into it. It’s just this halfhearted, encompassing spatter.

And I am watching it from behind glass.

I’d been scheduled for very few hours the week before and this last week, which means that with two days off through illness I’ll be paid even less than I was going to be. Normally, I might have asked to put some hours of holiday pay through to help me out (I usually have quite a bit of holiday saved up& I don’t use it very often), but apparently we’re not allowed to do that any more.
