With every day that passes, it gets easier and easier to go to work. I still miss my family like crazy. I don't think that will ever go away. But the homecoming every night is the bestest thing ever. I mean seriously. The squeals and hugs are just amaze-balls.
But, in it's normal glory, life has dumped another bucket o' fun on me.
Last Tuesday, as I was getting ready to head home from work, one of my bosses showed up. We talked for a bit. She was filling me in on what was happening at my store so I wasn't walking in blind. Then she blind-sided me.
"The owner wants you to feel comfortable when you take over the store. We'll have to do a mass hiring and find you an assistant manager."
Um... say what now?
I thought I was the Assistant Manager... I.. uh... run that by me one more time.
"He didn't tell you? Yeah. He wants you to be the general manager of that store. We are hoping in a month or so actually."
I haven't even made it a full month and they are wanting me to manage the highest ranking store in sales (two years running). And my store would be a training store for other crew members and some management.
Why yes. I do believe I shall have a small inner panic attack now. Thank you.
So yeah. That happened. And as of right now, that's what we are working towards. If all goes well, in a month I will take over the store in a month, begin a massive hiring, and pick my assistant manager out.
Call it crazy. Cause I sure as hell am.
I'm crazy excited, stupid nervous, pretty stressed out, and probably still in shock.
But sure. I can bound up that corporate ladder in a single leap apparently. And without my knowledge. Go me.
