So this morning, as soon as my Customer Service Manager arrived at work she called me into her office to let me know she’d just turned in her two weeks. I was shocked, to say the least, but happy for her since she’s moving on to bigger and better things.
However, about an hour later my district manager calls me to his office and invites me out to lunch. I’m like, “okay, sure.” But inside I’m thinking, ohmyGod!ohmyGod! ohmyGod!ohmyGod!ohmyGod!ohmyGod!ohmyGod!o
So for the next few hours I’m literally shaking with anxiety, wondering if he’s going to offer me the job, or is just trying to let me down gently (I’ve been passed over for this position before).
Then, a very good friend of mine comes to the office to say goodbye to me, and one of my other coworkers, because she’s moving to Scotland for a while to go to school. (Good Luck Carrie, we love you!) and so I hold it together while she’s there, but my coworker bursts into tears and so of course, then I burst into tears, and then we are just a mess together. This added to the job anxiety has given me a HUGE headache by this point.
So I go out to lunch with the district manger, and we go to some trendy sports restaurant down the street and he buys me lunch. Then he offers me the job.
SQUEE! (am I allowed to squee for non-fandom things?)
So now not only am I really really excited, as I’ll be starting almost immediately, but I’m just a bit scared too. Um, so all of you out there who pray, please pray for me, and those who don’t, just think really positive thoughts, because I’ll need it.
