What happened next. — The Social Experience
After I gave my notice at Pier 1, Adam convinced me it would be a good idea to compose an Email Carpet Bomb in order to express my grievances to HR, Executives, Managers, and the like. I was hesitant at first, I generally like to avoid unnecessary conflict, especially with employers, past and present, but after he presented me with a rough draft and I was reassured that the tone of the email would be positive and encouraging, I gave the green light. We sent it off on Sunday night and by Tuesday morning I was on the phone with the Regional Manager, talking things out. I'm not going to get into too much detail, as I'm sure there are some people from work who visit this site on occasion, but the end result was they offered me my job back at a store that needed an AM. I took the afternoon to consider the offer and by Wednesday morning I accepted.
My last day at store 422 is Friday. I'll miss that crew a ton, they are by far the most fun to work with and there are a few in particular whose weirdnesses are a match for my own, which is both refreshing and kind of scary. I start work at store 56 on Tuesday. It will be fun to meet some new people and make fresh connections, but I have a feeling there will be many phone calls taking place between store 422 and store 56, you know, for business purposes.
"Waiting to jump" my darling. Nothing beats hard work and creativity, someone noticed. Kudo's to you and to Adam for pushing, the squeeky wheel gets the grease. Way to go Adam.
Oooh, i really like "the squeeky wheel gets the grease" - I think I might sub that in for my usual, "the nail that sticks out, gets hammered."
