OK, Now My Hide Is Really Chapped

My neighbor, who is taking classes at the extension, came over for tutoring tonight. She was surprised to discover that I was unemployed. I knew that they had opened an extra section of remedial pre-algebra at the last minute, and her instructor was the one who was asked to teach it, but evidently he's been complaining that he didn't want to teach this class and it was rather foisted on him.

They foist an extra class on a guy who doesn't want it, when I'm sitting here twiddling my thumbs wondering how I'm going to pay my bills.

I'm trying really hard not to be mad about this.
