My favorite manager (who I have been deeply crushing on for 11 months) quit today. No two week’s notice. He just up and quit. He decided around 2PM today to say “screw it” to that place and he didn’t show up for work. He was supposed to close. My other managers are convinced something happened and that he’ll be back. I know the truth. He’s done - gone. I was talking to him via text most of the night. He’s not coming back. He’s been trying to find a job for awhile now and he received a job offer finally. Better pay, fewer employees to manager, better benefits, and the hours are great. He’s worked with the company for over 10 years at various locations and it was time.
I don’t know whether to be sad or happy about this though. I’m sad, because I won’t see him on the regular now. He was one of the only managers who gave a rat’s ass about me. I vented to him constantly and he did the same. Plus, we share a common bond: we’re obsessed with the STL Cardinals. I’m happy though, because this means I can finally make a move (and be rejected, I’m sure). Either way it goes, at least there will be some closure, I suppose. How soon is too soon??
