So I'm awesome. It's something I had to learn to deal with since I was very young.
This week, after being on the job for one and half weeks I've been promoted to the HR big whig.
This after I not only arrived late to work and left early, but completley blew off a work day since it was my "Birthday".
I thought I had gotten away with the slough, and texted the squaw with the affirmation: "No one noticed I was gone." when a knock came to my office door.
It was the Executive Director.
"Oh crap." I thought, the jig was up.
"Do you have a minute to talk?" The Executive Director asked. Which is never a positive opener to a discussion - only bad things happen after that opening.
"The HR Director position is open and I think you should apply for it. I think you'd do a good job with it." came the invitation.
"Sure." I answered.
So I did the "interview" and a day later, 9 days after being hired I was promoted.
Then I got the cake. I don't know if it's intentionally sarcastic, but I don't know if they're really all that enthused. Anyway - I'm their supervisor now, so they better make nice.
