I spoke to my manager yesterday and told him of my job offer. I told him that, altho I really hate to leave, the other company was offering me more money. I asked him if I could stay on 1 day a week (Wednesday) and he said that he didn't think so. I was crushed.
It sucks to learn that you are expendable.
So...do I stay at the restaurant or do I go back to my old job? I have a lot to think about...
############LATER THAT SAME DAY##########
Well..it seems that my manager was kidding me! He said, "Shar...why do you look so down?" When I explained that I was upset by the fact that I may take the other job and not have 1 day a week at the restaurant, he said, "Shar..you'll ALWAYS have a job here, even if you just wanna come in for 2 hours! Of course you can work 1 day a week here! We'd love to see you stay, but we also understand that it's more money at the other place!"
So now I suppose I really need to make a definate choice here..don't you?! (Thanks janothy for all your advice...and yes, I did listen!)
Getting ready to do food delivery to a local women's shelter..The Deacon's serve a baked ziti parmigiana to this shelter once a month. I just hope that we have enough help...I know of only 1 other person who's definately going to be there...Should be interesting as we feed approx 50 residents a meal of baked ziti, farlic bread, celery, carrot, cookies and juice..This is not the time to be shorthanded..Oh well..gotta get out of my work clothes and into something a bit more comfortable!
Everyone have a great night! Peace!
