A reply came back from the one who's a bit of an insider on things: "They appreciate you ...they tried replacing you and you are still here."

... or maybe you're so underpaid they can't even find monkeys that'll take less

... definitely exploit it.

Suggesting you're "considering part-time" is one way to shake the bridge without setting it on fire - and what's the worst that could come of that if they accept it?
(at very least more time to look elsewhere or pull some contracts, but even better more time to prepare some pre-winter crops and a mid winter vacation.)
pestilence [ pes-tl-uh ns ] noun
