Blogger World, something happened to me Monday at work. It’s a good thing. However, no one knows that it happened to me. Let me explain. Monday I was busy at my desk working. Yes, working. Not surfing the internet, not typing up a blog post, and definitely not stalking my favorite Hollywood celebs. My boss walked by my office and this conversation took place:
Boss- Oh, you are here today. (It was noon; I’d been in the office all morning)
Me- Yes, sir I’ve been here all morning.
Boss- Fridteay we decided to promote you to a SR.
Boss- Now, this promotion comes with a pay raise.
Me- Thank you sir.
Boss- You’re a great worker, everyone thinks the world of you….yada, yada, yada.
You get the point. I received a promotion and a pay raise. Normally, when promotions occur a global email is sent out announcing an employee’s promotion. Unfortunately, I have once again slipped through the cracks. No email was sent out on my behalf, which I find disappointing. I have received this big promotion and no one in my office knows. Oh, and don’t even get me started on completing my MBA. No one in the office has congratulated me on that accomplishment either. Although, someone did just ask how classes are going. I told them I graduated two weeks ago. I’m assuming my coworkers will figure out that I’m done with school. But maybe I’m giving them too much credit-it has been about two weeks.
Today, I am treating myself to my favorite sandwich and cookie for lunch. It’s my reward to myself!
