I don't know about all of you other working stiffs out there, but I go to work for one reason and one reason only... money. Some folks say they also enjoy the challenge of the work, the socialization with their friends and peers. Not me. At the end of the day, it's just the money. Challenges don't pay the bills and I can socialize with my friends outside of work.
That said, I've been threatening my management for the last year that I was going to find another job in the facility unless they made it worth my while to stick around. They claimed I deserved it, but talk is cheap, ya know what I mean? I'm in a unique position because NO ONE knows what it is I do for a living. They know it's labeling systems, and they know it's global, but what that entails [specifically] remains a dark mystery for some unknown reason. So, taking advantage of that fact, I continued according to my plan of attack and it finally worked! I was told today that as of January 1st, I will officially become middle-management which will put a little more "umph" behind my bossiness ~ LOL.
So Merry Christmas to me! And a skein of yarn all around!!
Now back to my meatloaf... ;o)
