Office So Long

Today, my direct supervisor is leaving his current job to head a new department in Europe, moving from one Vice Presidency to another.

We've been great friends for the past few years, and I've got a lump in my throat just typing these words.  We have made a great team!  I am an executive administrative assistant.

My new supervisor is a man I've been working with for over seven years; he's been promoted!  We two just had a terrific gabfest, and I feel we're going to be just fine together.

There is good and bad with everything, and this change is by far not as hellish as others that I've been through in my career, yet I have qualms. 

So long, CS...Bon Voyage!

Hello, CA...let's hit the ground running!

This is the card that I gave CS, plus a potted mini-rose plant & some chocolates.

Here's an old clip of The Who, playing "Don't Get Fooled Again", with the prophetic line:

Meet the new boss!
Same as the old boss!




Even though that line doesn't apply, it's nice to ROCK OUT once in awhile...

Here is a photo that I found online, of Roger Daltrey with a kitten:

Lucky kitty....😻

  1. Change like that can sure make the humans nervous though but we're sure you can handle it!

  2. Change causes stress and sometimes it's unwarranted and sometimes the change is awful. I'm sure you'll do just fine.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

  3. I guess if I am being honest change is my least favorite thing. But alas we have to go with the flow. I'm glad you know your new boss.
    A friend of mine, who works at a resort, just had the resort bought by another management team. She doesn't know any of them. I hope and pray they will recognize all the employees for the values and experience and keep the.

  12. I love the kitty card you got for your supervisor. Good luck to him in Europe. Sounds like your new supervisor and you will make a good team as well :-)

  13. That is such a cute card, and according to dad anything related to rock and roll is awesome, so yay on your The Who reference. We hope the change works out for you, and it sounds like it's going to. Dad just can't seem to settle into his new job for various reasons. He and mom are not really "people" people, and if he could dad would work all by his lonesome every day. I'm not worried yet about another move as mom would kill dad if he even broached the subject right now, but between recent overheard discussions and their continued frustration with house-hunting I'm getting the sense something's up.

    I know it's hard to leave friends and move to totally different culture, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for you both. It's going to be a hard time for you but I'm sure your friendship will survive! <3
