I got promoted at work. So, um… yeah. Merry, um.. Christmas? I guess?
I’m now going to be a manager. Again. Which means I’ll have people reporting to me. Again. Which is not my favorite thing. I do just fine managing my own affairs, but when I have to manage others… Sigh. It can make me a bit chippy.
But all the people have been here quite some time and are good in their jobs, so that’s a plus. And the manager title will look good on a résumé, just in case. And I do get a raise, so that’s nice.
The real downside was that the people I will now be managing were my coworkers and peers. So that whole interpersonal dynamic will need to shift.
Which will effectively isolate me even more at work.
But hey. It’s still a promotion, right?
