Oh, that sounds familiar! My work-study job paid out once per month (!) and when I started, they had just been paid and apparently it takes a month to be put on the payroll. So I had to work 8 weeks before I saw a check!Originally Posted by Mariner
Favorite dinner during those times: Ramen plus a can of corn and one egg stirred in. Alternatively, a can of beans served with rice made with diced tomatoes. We called ourselves "economic vegetarians".
