just call me mrs. v.p.

So this morning Ahmed and I are speaking. We're talking of the differences between me and Chas at work. What he will take care of and what I will over-see. He hemmed and hawed and finally spit out that he'd like us to have titles for our new jobs.

Chas will be the Operations Manager (a title I'd approached Ahmed about earlier when the job shift happened). I will be the V.P. of Marketing. Hmmm, I like.

Tonight I am going to stay late and rearrange the downtown store to increase flow through the store. I am not telling Ahmed that I am doing this until it is done and he comes in and asks "when did you do this?" cuz I know he will.

Kev's meeting me here and we'll have pizza next door before we head home for a quiet night. I'm pretty excited. And I've not been able to wipe this smile off my face all day.

shannon said...

I do too, but the more Kev and I spoke the more I like Marketing Coordinator. :)

VP of Marketing. Hmmmm. It has a nice ring to it.

It suggests that the company is growing and will have more than the few stores currently in operation.

VP of Marketing. I wonder what could be next?

I'm happy for you.

Was the pizza good? lol

woohoo! You's in charge!
So, do you have a driver now? :)

shannon said...

No driver yet, but I might be able to get use of a car...

It's fun. I can hardly wait to see his face when he walks in today and asks that question I know he'll ask. Then to see his response...sweet.

Pizza was fantastic!
