Another new development
« on: November 16, 2013, 11:56:21 AM »
I was ordered to attend a meeting last week in Albuquerque. I had hoped my co-worker would attend for both of us.

Well, after the meeting, the CEO asked me to meet with her.

Seems the reason for my being there was to ask me to become the supervisor for the northwest region.


My first response was, "What is this going to entail?"

She said I was already doing most of it, but she wanted me at to oversee the operation and be the person who decides issues when they arise.


So, I am the new supervisor for an area that exceeds 10,000 square miles and have two people working under me, although, technically, we work more as a team than as supervisor-supervisee.

I did get a raise, which is nice.

So, something new in the mix.

Congrats, Mark -- you deserve this so much, and a raise is always delightful. I hope you go out tonight and celebrate.

It's possible I may be in Albuquerque in the spring and if so we surely must get together.

Great  news  Mark   hope they  threw in a new car  with that job  to  cover that territory.... but   the raise is nice  and the  "title"" is  always  an ego  booster.... be  sure  everyone  calls you "Sir"   now...even  when not  wearing the  Leathers

remember the good times...honor the past but don't live there
