I mentioned that I told my boss I’d like to step down. He has side stepped the issue. Saturday, I sent him an email that I’d like to transfer to a store closer to home and step down into a consultant’s position. Sunday night at 9pm my phone rings. A few minutes later I listen to voice mail. My boss wants to discuss the email. I didn’t call him back.
Monday: While at work, my boss texts me to call him about the email. I call him. He doesn’t really want to listen to all I have to say but counters me with a transfer to Huntersville as a Facility Manager. I told him I’d like to think about it. Not as in days but maybe a few hours. He tells me time’s up. He wants me to try it out. It’s a much much newer store. I accepted.
I mapquested it and found it’s only 20 minutes away! Yay! Later that night, Jim and I took a drive after dinner to check it out. The place was closed but nothing looking through windows didn’t solve. The place looked immaculate. It’s a new facility.
Tuesday: We have a manager’s meeting in Charlotte at the corporate office. I won’t go into specifics. I’m sure it would bore you anyway. After the meeting I went back to my store, Rock Hill, said my goodbyes and finished out the day. I start the new place tomorrow.
Wednesday: I started my new facility today. I like all of the employees and the facilities are awesome. The service consultant, Rob, has only had 1 day off for the past 6 weeks. His fiancé miscarried the other day and he couldn’t take off. Can you imagine? Ugh. This facility like so many others is short staffed so I’m on the hunt for a service consultant.
I won’t get my day off this week, only Sunday but I’m OK with that.
