A little extra money :)

August 18th, 2006 at 01:35 pm

Yesterday I got a letter from the election board about working a special school bond election in September. It wouldn't pay as much as the regular ones ($70 vs. $200), but it's a much shorter day. I do have qualms about it--I've heard there can be more nastiness and shenanigans at these elections--but I guess I'll put in to do it.
I don't feel like I ought to turn down $70.

This morning I got an email from Amazon about a book that sold--$48 for a textbook DH retrieved from the trash at work! (It's still in very nice condition.)

    Last year i nearly signed up to help with the local town election. I was going to take a vacation day to do it. I forget what they paid, but i thought it would be an interesting civic duty thing to do, until someone's comment about 'all the old people' who do that dampened my enthusiasm, and i started thinking, as usual, about all my own stuff that needs to be done at home. I ended up not doing it. I should try that this year, i bet i could meet a lot of people that way.
