Wow, quite a few weeks of events taking place… I’m not really sure where to start.
So lets just jump right into it with the major highlights, shall we?
Last week (it was Wednesday that everything went down), everyone at my job was called into a meeting with our store manager, human resources person, and all the floor managers. Not exactly the sort of meeting I wanted to take part in, but it was something that I think most of us predicted coming along. The first thing I noticed, was that two people were not present at the meeting. The yard manager, and our store shipper/dispatcher.

Sure, I didn’t really see him outside of work, and the only time that she really saw him was when she was dropping off invoices… but he still brightened the day a little bit. It was fun to come to work in the morning and just chat with him for the 5 or 10 minutes before starting my day, hearing about how his weekend was, or his trips into the interior, or the cabin he and Debbi planned on building for weekend getaways. Just in general, he was a nice part to my job. On Wednesday, his employment at Curtis Lumber was terminated, and he wasn’t there anymore. Instead, I was moved into his office, and essentially given his job. Not exactly the way I wanted to get a promotion…. (more…)
