Everything seemed so normal....
,,,when I went to work this morning.
Today was the transition day for a new manager taking over the store where I currently work. I am currently scheduled to stay there for a week helping to train new staff. Then I was supposed to return to the car wash site. That was this morning.
This evening? No so normal any more.
My old manager (who had just given up this store to concentrate on running the car wash site) informed me she was giving notice and quitting in two weeks. We couldn't exactly talk freely under the circumstances with a half dozen other staffers hovering in the vicinity, so I was left wondering what the fuck was going on. I left work still clueless as to the reason for this sudden resignation.
I go home, goof off a bit. I go back out to grab dinner at the mall. I come home and told my soon to be ex-manager had called. I return her call. She's obviously upset. All I can get out of her is that she quit this afternoon and walked off the job. Not only that, she took her sister the assistant manager with her. And two others staff member left with her. So now the car wash site staff is um...pretty well fucked to hell and back as far as I can see. There's basically no one there anymore. Whatever happened must have been ugly.
Now I don't know what the hell is going on, or what the fuck is going to happen. I have no real relationship with the owner of the business (she knows my name, but not much else), no chits to call in from her, no nothing. My old employer would have went to the wall for me, but this one, not so much.
Christ, I haven't felt this vulnerable about work in over a decade.
