New Job

Last Wednesday, one of my bosses approached me and asked me if I would take a certain position within the company I work for if it became available.  It would involve a promotion, raise, and my own office.  I told her I would be.  She said it wasn't a sure thing and it might not happen anytime soon.

The person whose job she was referring to was ole crookedtoes.  The next day, Thursday, I came back from lunch and crookedtoes was shutting her office door and looked mad.  I pretty much knew what had happened.  Our CEO was in the office that day.  It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.

Halle freaking lujah!  No more crookedtoes.

Crookedtoes had accumulated 15 years worth of a hoard (no joke) in her office.  She came back in Thursday night and clean it up somewhat and got most of her personal belongings out of there.  My other boss started cleaning out her office the next day.  That afternoon I helped clean and found a shoe box full of pens, markers, and highlighters.  Also, found 4 pairs of earrings, a fingernail, and a day planner from 1997. Seriously.

So Monday, I started my new job.  I do a lot of the stuff I was already doing but I have a lot more responsibility.  And I am able to make more decisions on my own.  

So far, I've been really busy, which is good.  My boss is super smart and very helpful so the transition has been pretty smooth. I can't leave for lunch until 12:30 now (umm... hello, I'd starve by then) so I've been eating at my desk.  

I guess the only downfall is that my computer in my new office sucks.  I recently got a new computer at my cubical with Windows 7 and Office 2010.  It was tuff!  Now I'm back to Windows XP and Office 2003.  And it's so slow I don't even want to mess with getting on the internet while I eat.  But the boss ordered me a new computer so I'll have a pimp setup again soon.

This week has flown by.  And I've looked forward to going to work everyday.

Hope you are all having a great week!

Your boss asked you if you wanted a job with a promotion and more money? Totally awesome.
