I’m sort of in limbo right now.
Yesterday, my boss put in his two weeks notice. Basically since the day I started, my other sort-of-boss, has told me that if my boss ever quit, I would pretty much be guaranteed his position. So here I am, all ready and eager to start, and what do they say? “Weeeeelll, we’re not sure if it’s a ‘good fit.'” Instead they plan to hire someone, recently graduated with a bachelors, who has managerial experience. Hello?? What exactly am I?
So right now they’re in the “thinking” stage. Who knows if I’ll get promoted to this job which I KNOW I can do, and I’ve vocalized on multiple occasions I KNOW I can do it, and the sort-of-boss lady says she KNOWS I can do, but no. Still thinking.
But WAIT!…there’s a big important 3 day long training session in Vegas this weekend! The boss was supposed to go? Well that seems somewhat pointless now. Right? So Merrick!! Go to the training session! We’ll spend $1500 on the ticket to get you in! But will we promote you after all this time and money? Well, we’re still “thinking” about that.
So here I go..off to Vegas for Sunday – Wednesday. I will leave poor Philip at home for 3 1/2 days. I will sit in classes from basically 9am to 9pm for two days straight. I will fill my brain with tons of information.
And will I use any of this information? …apparently we’re still “thinking” about that.
