Welp, I’ve finally cut my losses and signed up with a new contractor. Sohrab just couldn’t find the work and last time I called him, he suggested I do just that if I could. I’m now getting a ride with new girl Sarah and working for a woman called Julie. Ironically, on the first day of work, Sohrab calls to see if anyone is free for work. I feel a little guilty about leaving when I was…but when I texted Krislin at lunch time, turned out Sohrab has transferred them to another contractor since he couldn’t get work, and they’d only gotten an hour when I’d had 3 by that point. Clearly made the right decision.
My new contractor for the next 3 weeks is very specific on how he wants the work done though. The supervisor is insistent that we use a certain method of picking – this method I know of, but haven’t been using because the number of fruit I drop increased dramatically. However, I’ve been told to learn because my style is too slow. As such, I’m going pretty slow myself. Hopefully I can pick it up before people start to notice.
