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 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.

    That’s crazy. If you get promoted to be the boss right after Philip, you guys will be one bossy family!

    As I said before, I found your blog through Janssen’s. I always look to see if you’ve posted any new recipes and/or paintings.

    Okay, I’m REALLY butting in here, because this is absolutely none of my business.

    Philip just received a promotion, but the job place is an hour’s drive away. Right now Philip has use of a company car and the gas is paid, but will this always be the case?

    Your boss is quitting, and the “company” is hem-hawing about giving you the promotion. Is there anything keeping you in Provo besides your job? You graduated – congratulations, by the way – so school isn’t the issue. I don’t know where you work or what you do besides paint, but could you get a similar job closer to the town where Philip is working?

    Maybe this is a good time to make a break and move. Just a thought. (You don’t have to answer me back, but feel free to tell me to “bugger off” if you wish.)

  3. Some people are just stupid, consider putting them in that catagory if they don’t see the obvious jewel in front of their noses!

  4. HAHAHAHA…you know why I’m laughing. I did what you told me to do 🙂

    Btw, it’s 9:30 on a Saturday night, and I’m here..running dubs. I love my job…I love my job…I love my job…
