The Domino Effect

Phone. It's Domino’s Pizza calling me back! I get straight to the point. ‘How much does it pay?’

‘That depends on how hard you are willing to work, the hours and all. Do you want to work part-time or full-time?’


‘So you could start at 5pm or 6pm and work until 10pm or 9.30pm or 11pm, up to you.’

‘And do you pay by the hour?’

‘Yes. So you can do 2 days or 3 days or 4 days, like that. And the money goes into your bank account once a month.’

‘So how much is it per hour?’

‘That depends on your age. If you are under 21, £5.35. Over 21, £5.93.’

‘What if I’m 50? Does that pay more?’

He laughs. ‘Unfortunately not.’

There. My first job interview, practically. But £5.93? Worse than minding half a dog. I’d be better off being a home-based call centre. Maybe I could be a home-based call centre while minding dogs and baking American confections. That is the answer. I’m going to have to do multi jobs. Work all hours that God gives. Hard to change at my age, though.
