When he first started with this company, he was one of only a few “old guys.” Most of the employees were young, good ol’ boy, auto body shop kids. G was only young at heart. Just like he did at the RAC company, he started at the bottom. Yesterday he got his fourth promotion, and he got a full bonus.
From checking files, data entry, special projects, now to “Coach”….a fancy name for a bottom line supervisor, he’s moving up.
“It’s safer over there,” the boss said as he offered G the promotion.
That wasn’t a good feeling. Are they dissolving special projects? Instead of worrying, we celebrated by stopping by Frye’s where he bought the point and shoot he wanted with his bonus. It’s a stick in your pocket, small, light, 10 pixel, Cannon camera that got good reviews. Then we were off to hang out at J’s party for Kids of All Ages at the only house in Crown Point with a puppet theater built in to the garage door and real people acting out all the rolls of trees, witches, and other magic creatures.
