Me with the duh face...

Made it through today which actually turned out to not be too bad a day. Nothing broke, we had enough staff and I got to spend most of it in the back office getting prepped for the month and talking to Jen. It's her last day and there's quite an interesting horse race going on for her job.

Her favorite crack to make when somebody asks her who she thinks will get her manager slot: "I think it will go to someone who's name starts with "J.""
She says their face brightens a bit...and then falls and gets cranky. Who is going for the job? Why, nearly all the supervisors...

Jeremy, Jared, Josh, John and Jett.

Yup. 5 Js. Heh.

I told Jen how I am ramping my portfolio up in order to start sending it out to different studios. She smiled and told me to make sure I get somebody groomed to take the position. I laughed about that and started thinking of the guys under me I would think would be great supervisors. I can already think of 2 or 3 which I think makes me a good supervisor.
Anyway as I was stepping a thought occurred to me and I stepped back. "Why are you giving me grief about getting somebody groomed for my position when there is such a rat race for yours?"
She looked at me startled. "I DID groom somebody for my position!"


"I've been grooming YOU!" she said a bit forcefully and then laughed. "I even told Dick that you are the person who rises to all occassions, find a way to do it impressively and more than meet his expectations."

Awww...Have to admit it gave me quite the warm fuzzy.

So, the only strike against me is I've only been a supervisor for 4 months. Everyone else has at least a year under their belt.

Wait, no...another strike...I have to "dress more professionally." Groooaannnn.
Next week I have 3 shifts as the Manager on Duty. After checking my closet I realize..."I got nothing."

So, with a heavy sigh I call my sister who is going to help pull me into the appropriate decade tomorrow. Should be interesting. I'm looking forward to it for the mere reason that I don't have to be at work for two days and really...after Sunday the holiday season is over.
Everyone goes back to work, to school...and I get to concentrate more on my portfolio.

  • "ARRROOOO?" or "Is anybody there?"

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

  • Checking in

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

  • "10 Things" or "Q&A"

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
