I worked today at my grocery store job. I went in at 4:45am to do the candy. At 7 my manager came in and went to her office. I gave her a few minutes to get adjusted and then I went in and told her I would be giving two weeks notice.
Her face fell. She was not a happy camper. She asked what they could do to keep me. I told her about my job offer and she said she would tell the other managers and maybe there would be something they could do to improve my current situation there with different hours and possibly a raise.
I think my mind and body is ready for a change though.
I went after work and talked to my new employer to be. He is very excited to have me coming in as his new staff member. He is ordering me a book for learning the insurance business. He said I would have to go to school for three days and take a test to be licensed. He said he would cover all the cost of the schooling and books.
He asked if there was any way I could start sooner than two weeks. I offered to work there on my day off, but he said everyone needed their days off.
He said he could wait until my two weeks was over.
He gave me an old book to study until mine comes in.
I am kinda scared to study the older one as I might get confused when it comes to the new laws and old laws.
It looks kinda hard, but I am sure if I put my mind to it I can do it.
I will be talking to my current managers again on Friday.
I am off tomorrow and I plan to just relax and enjoy my time off.
I am excited about the change and hope I am making the right move.
My current manager said she really does not want me to leave because I am trained in so many areas in the store....candy pharmacy and cashier.
She said she hated to see me go because I am so good with the customers and they would miss me terribly.
I will miss everyone too, but I think it is time for Barbara to have a new beginning and how can I turn down such a great offer. Schooling paid and the perfect scedule.. Not to mention the fact that Rick and I will be working the same time and have more time together.
I ask for your prayers that I will make the right decisions.
My motto has always been never look back....so I am trying to focus on the future.
I pray God will lead me and guide me.
Also I need prayers for my brain to learn all this new stuff....sure I could just keep doing what I know and go on.....but why.
I think I need to just buck up and get busy learning new things.
What do you think?
