Contracting is defined as an agreement between two or more parties, especially one that is written and enforceable by law & to reduce in size by drawing together; shrink. Now I’m contracting at this gig right now for the next 3 to 6 months so it’s funny to see how business goes down. When I came in I got a desk and started working as they told me the desk I was sitting in the girl was on maternity leave. So today the girl comes back and they just fired her and said they aren’t hiring for anyone new in that position as they are contracting!
Damn, this game is cold than a mawfvcker as I just kept my eyes on my chips and my business but my ears heard it all. The new plantation runs the slaves in a tighter drumline around here so they are all business and hardly no lip. But, the girl that got fired came in and was celebrating her baby and then they pulled her aside and said she’s fired. Her aunt works in the place and she thought it was fvcked up too but what can she do as she might get fired too. Of course the other slaves talked a good one about how fvcked it was but the majority of them got extra quiet.
I absorbed the whole game with my 3rd eye and ultra game sensitive ears. The fired girl is walking around asking people for recommendations or a good word about another job. People were saying keep your head up and it’s business so don’t take it personal. People were saying we will eat lunch this week or next. All these well wishers who can do nothing but wish you well.
It made me remember when I was in the same situation and that time shook me to give all I had to this chip game. I know she was trying to keep a good face on to the devil but that mawfvcker cut her cold with a new baby to boot! I was going to offer typical FreeMan theology but since I’m really really babyfresh new to the plantation I thought it was best if I handle mine and get mine and get the hell out of there when the time is up. They caught me off guard like that before and it changed me forever.
Shit I wanted to tell her she should be contracting with the devils so if they contract they still have to pay you the agreement. I don’t give a fvck if they say they don’t need me anymore as in my contract is full payment of the time spent so I’m sure I’ll be around to the end of my… MY aka I set this shit up …. CONTRACT!
