Just got back from my “thank you for letting me reschedule my punishment shift so that I could go see the Harry Potter premiere” coffee with Joanne!
We talked about a lot of stuff, especially Harry Potter – I never would’ve pegged her for a fan if I hadn’t seen her walk out of the premiere with my own two eyes.
I’m thinking while it may not have started out as a great experience, having Joanne as a temp boss made me remember something: firstly, no matter how mean the book looks, don’t judge it by its cover and you may be surprised (I know I was)!
But towards the end of our conversation, she said something that reeaaally bugged me: Joanne admitted that she’d recently been thinking of letting Tim go.
Letting Tim go??? That BLEW me away! I was really careful in asking if she could actually do that, seeing as she was only a temporary manager at Birk…and she said she is fully trained and did some hiring/firing consultations in the past: so yes!!
When it came down to it though, she didn’t pull the plug on Tim…but she’s thinking about recommending it to Dmitri!!!
I dunno if I should tell Tim, though…would Dmitri actually take Joanne’s advice and fire him? Is it worth stressing Tim out over potentially nothing?
My conscience is crying a little right now…
