Yeah, me neither.
I'm so proud of him, really. The man is such a hard worker and he is so good at his job. I couldn't do his job, that's for sure. He deals with customers all day long. He also has to deal with his own staff all day long.
His employees make my co-workers actually look sane, and that's saying a lot given my co-workers propensity to shout the "f" word to one another during staff meetings and throw tantrums and act like douchenozzles and whatnot. His staff, however? Sweet Naomi Campbell with a cell phone, those folks are crazy.
For example, his customer service representative recently came to him and complained that he made more money than her.
No, seriously. You read that correctly.
He's her boss. She answers the phones all day. He runs the entire freaking office. And she's upset because he makes more money than her.
Then? She decided that she wanted to get a promotion to Assistant Manager. She went to him and told him she wanted to get promoted. He told her that her attendance has been a problem (shockingly, she always seems to be really "sick" on Mondays and Fridays) but if she could work on her attendance and stop calling in so much that he would take her out to "chase" (collect) and consider it. At some point in the future.
She went out the next day and bought a new car.
Okay, again. You read that right. She bought a new car.
She then came in and told everyone about her new Ford Focus and how she pays ONLY $450 a month for it.
Yeah. I'm seriously not kidding.
BUT! She didn't have to make a down payment! WOO! And her interest rate is only 18 percent or some insanely high number for a vehicle loan.
THEN! She said to Jason, "I bought this car so I could have a reliable car to go chase in. When you make me Assistant Manager."
Jason? He's a good man. He has a lot of crap to deal with.
I wish he'd come home. I hate the end of the month.
