I got promoted!

After one day on the job!

On Tuesday (the 13th) I went on an interview for a rather crappy job, but money’s money and beggars can’t be choosers, sadly. I got it right on the spot and got to start the very same day. Yesterday, Wednesday, I had a day off (lovely schedule, eh?) and today my new boss phones me and goes;

“Can you come in a little early today, I’d like to go over a few things with you… Give you your keys and codes and whatnot… You’ve been promoted!”

Needless to say, I was surprised!!

This little bump will not change my hours but will slightly diverse my tasks, mainly subtract from the current workload and add a few other things that I’d rather be doing anyway, and add a fair bit on the paycheck. I did the math earlier and found that I’ve basically gotten a 35% raise!

And this is where I faint, supposedly.

Well, I didn’t hit the floor or anything, but this was indeed a nice surprise! Something seems too good to be true, so I’m holding back on the ululations for now until I’ve seen for myself just what is up. You never know. Might get smacked in the face with a cod when I get there. (no – I’m not working with fish)

Tonight shall bring more news so I’ll know more after my shift.

*phew* What a week!
