Things at work are changing so rapidly, even I cannot keep up. The new owner, a man I like to call BJ, will be taking over on the first day of March, instead of the before-thought date of April 1st. So, as far as I'm concerned, I have one week left at my job. No one involved thought this would happen that soon, and every employee there became visibly upset that they could potentially be unemployed that quickly. After a few conversations between the current owner and I, he agreed that was hardly in the best interest of his employees, so he put a clause in the management contract that no one could be fired or have their wages and benefits lowered until the completion of the whole stock sale, which should be between 4-6 weeks after that date. That applies to me also, but I withhold my right to leave at any moment, mostly because this new guy has been a complete ass about taking over, and has not spoken to any current employee there. He is advertising for new mechanics already, and literally has NO idea who or what works there currently. I am hoping that all of my impressions of him are wrong, but so far I see nothing to make me like or respect him in any way. It does state in the contract that he will bring in his own management team, so I envision my office becoming quite crowded. I suppose that it all remains to be seen how it plays out, but suffice it to say, I am not happy with the terms and conditions of any of this, and I have no idea how long I will be able to hold out during the changing of the guard. Bankruptcy anyone? Holy shit.
There are interesting things happening with the Ice Cream Store, assuming that it isn't sold, and I will know that on this coming Tuesday. That is the deadline for the interested party to have decided or not what he will do, as it is literally down to the wire on having to begin opening that place up in time for already scheduled commitments. The other option could be a good thing..but I will wait and tell all once I know what's going on.
I could continue...but I think this is enough confusion and uncertainty for all of us. This is what's happening in my life, what's going on in your world? And you all wonder why I drink...
ps...yea! Spellcheck has returned!
