Not really a confession but so happy today. At first I thought it was an April fools' joke but they were totally serious. My company is being bought out by another major company and today was the day we essentially found out our fates. I figured I would get axed because I hadn't even been with the company for a year but it was pretty much all of the upper-management team that walked off, [well, they lost all their benefits and refused to work for them under those circumstances. No severance package either since it is a buyout and not a merger.] So I got offered the Boston manager position and I almost balked at it because I told them candidly that I didn't know much of the inner-workings of the company and they said I would get a "corporate companion" to train me for 6 months. I'm very certain I wasn't a #1 pick for the position but they at least see my potential.
