After I got done talking to Kirsten, I went through the day's mail and found a letter from the job that I had before I went to Dartmouth. You could tell from the outside that it had a check in it, and I was figuring they must have screwed up some paycheck far in the past and now owe me 31 cents.
It was actually a lot more fun than that. I didn't know it, but there was some big class action lawsuit on behalf of all the temporary community college instructors in Washington state about health insurance. Apparently, they were supposed to cover health insurance for the summer even if we only worked for fall, winter, and spring quarters. It didn't really matter to me at that point because I was covered by Kirsten's health insurance. At some point recently, the state decided to settle. My share of the settlement was a whopping $730.
Unfortunately, that money is going to the plumber to finish the kitchen project.
