Making preparations

My contracting company has a bad habit of only telling their contractors if their contracts are renewed or not on the day of expiration. Mine is September 29, so I'm making plans:

I'm applying for other jobs. My office knows this, so concealing it isn't a source of stress.

There is a training on the newest version of Westlaw that's coming out, and I'm definitely taking it. I have never used Westlaw, and I need to know how.

I'm working every hour that I can. I will not be attending any Rosh Hashanah services because of that. I will be able to attend for Yom Kippur; Kol Nidre is well after close of business, as is the last set of rituals of the holiday.

I think Steve and I need to go and stock up on non-perishables. I'll have a look at what soups are for sale on Amazon Prime Pantry; sometimes they have Progresso for a buck a can.

I'll be paid through the end of October, and I'll still have the Army to fall back on.

That is absolutely asinine; they know well before then if your contract is renewed or not. I knew for over 6 weeks prior to my most recent contract ending that it was going to end. The networking at that contract actually got me an intro for the contract I just accepted.

The hell? Thankfully there is the Army, too. I'd imagine working in the field of your specialty helps.

So tacky and petty to wait until the last minute. But, then again, honourable business practices seem to have been choked out of existence over the last few decades. Sigh.

Still, I'm glad that you're doing all sorts of practical things, just in case.

It is dismaying and disgusting. And yet, I don't remember it ever being different.
