I got called into the manager's office yesterday for a meeting with my department manager and the company president.

Long story short, they love me and they confirmed that I'm getting a big promotion next week with a title and a middle management position and a $250 payrise.

It's been on the cards for a while as over the past six months, as people have been leaving, joining or going off sick, I've pretty firmly established myself as one of the main safe pairs of hands in our department. I've been making materials and lesson plans, training new staff, teaching for crazy hours and being a positive presence the whole time. Our manager is retiring at the end of April so my pal Rob is taking her place as manager and I'll be getting his job as sub-leader.

Guys . . . I'm like a grown-up. I have a real job with career prospects where I wear a suit and get paid, like, a living wage. It's mental.

I should probably learn Japanese . . .

Oh good, The Most Confident Man On Earth has another thing to make him confident. Management should have taken you out back and shot you, to be a lesson to us all.

Nah, congrats Buska! Sounds like it was well deserved. What will the new duties be, or will you be doing all the stuff you've been doing anyway and just getting more recognition for it?

@Buskalilly well done - it would just be nice if there were more places in the world where it felt like it was worth doing a good job like that
@masofdas take it easy there - don't worry too much about Asda, but - and I know it's not my place to say, I just worry when I see the I/O just on this forum - maybe save a bit more

My role has changed, and I'm not in charge of a team any more, and have a weird floaty technical consultant role. Which is great for me honestly. I am not capable of deciding whether someone is doing good or not, and certainly can't motivate anyone. But I can do a lot of behind the scenes things to make people's lives easier, and I think that'd been appreciated, and I get more time to do that now.

Yeah not to worried about work, just would have been nice to have had a work based saving scheme, guess positive is getting a nice chunk in one go then over multiple years.

On the car front peeps basically said spend a tad more then I planned before getting this payout to get something nice but not all of it just on a car.

Mostly doing all the stuff I've been doing anyway and just getting more recognition for it but I think there will be a little more in the way of actual human management; I'll actually have a small modicum of authority when I tell someone to buck their ideas up.

You won't have to rely on raw charisma any more! Good luck boss, hope your journey towards becoming 'the man' is enjoyable and that the people you manage aren't gits.

@masofdas and @Jimbob Hope your shifts in circumstances work out for you! And yep saving is good.

Saving is good but surely goal of saving is it's used on something? Anyway going look around 7.5k not 10k for car.

...given that I've been both clever enough, in the specific way that society disproportionately rewards (mostly short-term fact recollection), and privileged enough to have more funds than most on here (I'd imagine), I probably shouldn't give anyone money advice!  Also I save a huge chunk in not being able, nor needing, to drive.

I feel I've been clever these past 3 years to save what I have, and goal was buy place last year but as you know about my Dad, then I do need a car to get anywhere.
