It's Hump Day Friends...

And that means that at 4:30pm EST it is now closer to Friday than Monday! What a good thing that is!

Today was a good day - my friend "T" from previous job came in today for an interview. I have it on good authority (the president told me) that she will be receiving an offer next week! Yay! I will have another friend here, someone who understands me and knows where I'm coming from. The more friends I can accumulate the better as far as I'm concerned.

It's official that I will be on the account team for the super big giant fortune 500 company that we have coming in house. Tomorrow I will get to meet some of the others on the account team from our San Francisco office as they are in for a strategy meeting. I will not be changing my reporting structure (same boss) but being put on the brand new account is a privilege and there are people who have been here longer wishing they had gotten this opportunity. I will be working very closely with my friend and former boss "C" and the VP of Client Services - so that is always good for the career as long as I impress him and I'm confident I can.

In other news I have learned that RBT (rat bastard trainer) has been chastised by previously mentioned VP for his tattletale incident 2 weeks ago! I am vindicated my friends. And further that one of his accounts that he was lead on contacted the VP and asked to have him removed from their account. This is something he told me as a matter of fact - I would personally be mortified to tell anyone if a client had called and complained about me.

So far this has been a good week for me. Will have another friend and ally at work, RBT in trouble with VP, assigned to a very important account, one that makes others jealous (including RBT I've heard). And it's only Wednesday! The only thing that might make this week any better would be having the winning ticket for the $120,000,000 Mega Millions jackpot on Friday night - but so far I haven't even bought a ticket. Might spend my $5 on something more satisfying - like a pint of Ben & Jerry's.

Congrats on all the fabulous things going on at work!
I still think you should buy a ticket :-)

Oh, *whew*. ~wipes forehead~ Thank goodness that the VP sees the light, and that he will admit it to you. So the trainer is the office wackadoo. Who knew.

Congrats on the account- I know how much that means to you. :)

Thanks for your comment on my last post. Things have been better the past few days, and I think it was just a matter of him accepting his situation and getting comfortable with his new job. You always give the best advice.

I hope the rest of your week goes as well as the first part did!

Better take the rest of the week off just to be safe!
