Moving on up

The bum deal about my holiday in sunny Sicily falling through at the last minute, and having it at the no less sunny Cote du Balcon instead, is that my direct manager knew exactly where to find me. He's new in the job, so I suppose a certain amount of cluelessness was to be expected, but his incessant phone calls in which he 'kept me updated' on a number of minor disasters re: my portfolio did get to be a trifle annoying after a while. However, I kept my temper and tried to help him out as much as I could from a distance...and lo and behold, now I'm going to be rewarded for it!

He sat me down, as soon as I came in this morning, to discuss my tasks and responsibilies, concluding that a) I do quite a bit around here (true), b) I'm quite capable of doing all this and still take on more work (erm...yes?), c) that another minion or two wouldn't go amiss (yes!yes!) and d) that he'd like me to take on the job of being his official back-up and replacement plus take on the day to day management of one of the more high profile teams within the organisation. He's asked me to think it over for a bit, but what's there to think about? Of course I'll do it. Sounds like it might be fun!
Besides, it's always nice to hear that you're virtually irreplaceable and quite important to the organisation, isn't it?

And I'm going to get another minion, for a full FTE! Life, as they say, couldn't get much better than this.

Congrats!
G!

That is fabulous! Cass and I knew you were irreplaceable (to us, anyway), and I am so happy for you that they have figured that out at work as well. And your own minion, as well! Excellent! I am so proud of you :-)

I'm glad you're back, even though it means that you are back working again. I missed you!

Missed you too, girlfriend...holidays suck in that respect, don't they? Can't wait for Cass to come back to us...

Re: Congrats!
BOO!

Well done, superstar! And about time too! Do we need to bow before we address you now?!
