I’ve been without help at work for about a month, maybe a month and a half.
Today I stopped by one of my stores in the way home. I wasn’t supposed to be there but I got lucky.
I ran into Deena.
Deena was the department manager over wireless when I first started working that store. She’s always on time, a hard worker, neat and presentable. Great with people.
She had a few health problems, which luckily she has overcome.
And lucky for me, she’s looking for part-time work.
We were a good team as vendor and department manager. We would be great working together in the same capacity.
Building relationships in business, not just because of business, can play out pretty well for you sometimes.
Over time we became friends. Good friends. Friends who might even end up in trouble with HR together. We have a similar dark sense of humor.
I’m hoping this works out.
Sometimes you have to go through some crap to get to where you need to be.
That’s it. That’s the post.
