The group trying to get me rehired fell thru. BUT… subsequent to that a different turn of events with another worker for the company opened a new job position. THAT teams Manager fought to get me too, and won the fight. So tomorrow I start in a role I really really like. This would be my ideal job if there is such a thing, and they rescinded my RIF status and now it never happened. It’s a wild and wacky world. Another lesson in not burning your bridges.
The Beerita, Texas Version of Wine Down Wednesday for me this week. Ummm Ummm good.
This photo has amazed me for years. lol Dick van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair, 1995
So I did lose my job on a rif effective next friday, … but… within days of the newborn baby I got a call from another manager at the company and they have another job in a diff dept so I later interviewed for it. The manager there loved me, and says she and her director asked around and everyone says I was awesome. That’s nice to hear. So for these couple weeks they have been trying to make a deal work where I get that job, and keep all my higher existing pay, tenure, benefits, etc. Yesterday the new Mgr.mailed me saying they were making HR invent a new job post to make it all happen. I may be stupid, but I never really thought “fuck em, I’ll just take the fat severance money and run” once I heard of this opening. Now that maybe this whole thing is wrapping up I still have mixed emotions but a job in the hand is worth 2 in the bush. There’s pro’s and con’s to everything, and this has been a mental roller coaster, but such is life. My loving Family is my rock, and they have all been great. Change is good and apparently so is my Karma.
This wed I put the wine down and instead opting for about 2 quarts of margarita to help me sleep. Yeah that’s it. Besides the wine ain’t cold. Any port in a storm.
