A good laugh and giving 3 weeks notice

About a week and a half ago I sent my boss my tentative leave date, as I'm planning on moving back to Utah in the very near future. Of course I didn't think to include a year in the e-mail. And in his true fashion, my boss replied something to the effect of "You're referring to 2012, right?" Then he asked me to get back to him when I was positive that was my leave date (2010 not 2012, though) and he would let the department I am currently working with know.

Well, yesterday I finally asked to meet with him so I could confirm the leave date. At the beginning of the conversation he asked me a question (I think maybe it was if I had a job in Utah already...I'm not sure). Anyway, whatever the question was I just started laughing and laughing and laughing. I think I probably laughed for 3 or 4 minutes. And my boss started laughing because I was laughing. We had a good laugh. And then we talked.

Towards the end of the conversation, my boss said, "Okay. So I'll tell M that you're going to be leaving in 3 weeks, but you'll probably be back in 4 weeks." I assured him that wasn't the case, but we did agree that I would be leaving in 3 weeks, but not quitting. Instead, I would be telecommuting, but probably would be working a lot fewer hours. So that's the story of how once again I did not quit my job.

Trace - Still a Winner

Anyone who knows me knows that I love The Apprentice. My favorite contestant ever on the Apprentice was Trace Adkins. He was on as a guest star this week, and he is STILL my favorite contestant ever. I just have so much respect for the man. Honestly, if I could find a man of his character...Actually, honestly if I could be more like him myself.
