I post these facts in plain public view with a clear
conciense. Jugglers I know, jugglers I don't know,
people accidently stumbling onto the damento archive,
my grandmother, and Jolly herself are welcome to read
and discuss these obvervations. I have no shame in
posting them as they are as accurate and objective as
they could possibly be. These are the undeniable facts
1.As of today, I intend to respond to future requests
by Jolly Holiday looking for strolling jugglers. Her
way of doing buisness has inconvenienced and offended
me, but not so much that I wouldn't consider working
for her again.
2.Last September I agreed to juggle for 4 hours at an
event booked by Jolly Holiday. Days before the event,
the hours were reduced to 2 without explaination. At
the end of the 2 hours, the other juggler and I were
told our checks would be in the mail. Eight days
later, at my east Sacramento home, I recieved a check
from Elk Grove based Jolly Holiday.
3.Last week I agreed to a strolling juggling job on
both Friday and Sunday. At my request, Jolly Holiday
agreed to leave my check with the manager of the store
I was to juggle in front of. On Sunday, after I was
done, I joined the store manager in a search for my
check. There was none. I called Jolly Holiday to find
out whether she had failed to deliver it, or if she
had in fact dropped it off and it had been lost. The
call was forwarded to voice mail, which I left. An
hour later, I called back. Jolly's explaination "I
didn't drop it off" was the only one offered. No
appology was offered. When asked if anything went
wrong, I said the only problem of the day was the
missing check. Jolly scolded me for having an attitude
and said she would not include me in the bounty of the
near future if I kept it up. She agreeed to drop the
check in the mail the next day.
4.There was no message on my home answering machine
telling me the check was not at the store, so I
shouldn't needlessly bother its employees. Or any
other message for that matter. I can't help but wonder
how much time would have gone by before Jolly would
have made any contact with me.
