In Italy there is working. Then there are the tens of hours that you spend trying to get paid, in which you are told a dozen times to fill out what, as it turns out later, was the wrong form. Then there is the confusing period in which you have no idea what is going on because every time you call they tell you that they just finished processing your payment, but then nothing ever shows up in your bank account. Then there is probably a vacation at this point. And then you miiiiiiiiiight get paid.
