got my promotion finally

So to top off buying the new bike this weekend I finally got my promotion at work. I've had a managers password since maybe a month into being there (so I can actually do stuff on sundays when I'm in the backroom by myself). Now its official and I get to wear a gray shirt cause I'm actually a manager. Another $2.30 is pretty nice to.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

work some OT and come to Grattan

Now that you got a decent regular job and new bike you could come to Grattan and we will shear you. Your own Mama might think you got kidnapped.

haha yup. yeah they promised the promotion when I came back from that stupid other job. My District Manager is usually just not in my store for more than like 20 minutes because he doesn't have to look after us like the other stores. We have a pretty good group of people and keep the place looking good while the other stores are full of retards. But he finally pulled me aside Sunday morning and did the switch in the computer system. It was actually $.50 more than what he originally said he was gonna give me.


Sheep as far as OT goes, it gets a little hard to come by but I try to stick around as much as I can if there's still work to be done. Plus they try to limit OT as much as possible. I do work 6 hours on Sundays so thats all time and a half.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

I want a promotion, but I'm too selfish to give myself one.

Congrats on both accounts - Bike and Job.
