On Monday Doom let me know that, surprise surprise, he had an interview on Wednesday (today) for a promotion at his work! He's been trying to get this promotion for quite a while now but I think we were both a little wary about him getting it. It seemed like his managers/higher-ups were kind of tugging him around, not really committing to the possibility. They would mention it, but then it nothing would happen. So I was quite surprised that they suddenly offered him the interview, if anything we weren't expecting real talk about it until a couple months from now.
So I helped Doom whip up a resume (okay well I ended up making it for him) and sent him off looking schnazzy. He just found out that he got it, though he has to do all the training and learnin' first.
It's not like we'll be rich or anything, but we won't have to worry about starving to death if we are flung into the world soon.
I'm really proud of him-- its not like its a fun job, I mean who really enjoys fast food?! But management experience is pretty much universal and despite the fact that it's stressful, he's working hard.
Now he'll be worked like a horse which means I've gotta be supportive and understanding, as well as get my own shit together!
