The best laid plans...

Friday, July 20, 2007

My plan for working was something along the lines of "get in, do a half decent job, get out" and eventually quit and go back to being a stay-at-home-mom.

So what happens? On Thursday, I got a freaking promotion. Yeah, seriously. The other girl in my department has been off for minor surgery, so I've been shouldering a massive load. And apparently I'm pretty damn efficient. LOL

My boss kept telling me what a good job I was doing and how much she appreciated my efforts. Then yesterday, she tells me I got a promotion (same job, different level & pay scale) and ... a RAISE.

Now the really funny part is that the policy is that you have to be there for 2 years to get a promotion, but they made a freaking exception in my case. WTF?!

So I try to be half-decent and end up making myself indispensable. Something's just not right, here! LOL!!

Fortunately, my coworkers are 98% smart-asses, (talk about a good work environment!) so I've been getting comments about my diabolical plan for world domination, and this is just the first step. MUWAHAHAHAHAHA Little do they know that it's actually the THIRD step!

Er... never mind. You didn't just read that.

I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong. Maybe I need to TRY to be indispensable...

Um, I don't know whether to cry or laugh my ass off, so it's going to come out as one of those sobbing, hiccup-y retching sounds.
