The devil wears Prada?

Today is her first day. The new boss. I'm not really sure if she wears Prada but I do think she was giving me the once over. She had a weak handshake. I hate weak handshakes. Oh, and I totally sold out and made her a welcome card. What has become of me?

I made the card because I didn't think I'd get to meet her at all since they have her schedule so booked up. I was having anxiety thinking that my current boss was going to try and take credit for the supplies in her office. So on the card I just wrote, Welcome to the team. I put some supplies in your office if you need anything my extension is_____. Not too cheesy but to the point.

Oh, and P.S. when my current boss did introduce to the new boss she TOTALLY tried to take credit for the supplies so I'm glad I wrote the note. I'm so glad I stocked up on the the buy one get one cranberry juice sale to go with my Vodka!!!!

  2. Since I'm not living this first hand it almost has the makings of a fun soap opera/reality show. It sounds like your next few weeks will be entertaining to say the least. Hope the dust settles and all is well. Vodka and Cranberry Juice...that is a fruit...healthy (mentally & physically). :)

    Happy Monday!

  4. I think the card is a smart move. It's not selling out, it was to the point and served a purpose (telling her you stocked the supplies!).

  5. *Hate* a weak handshake. I'm sure that isn't a sign of things to come. Good luck!

  6. I agree - I think the card was a good idea, not selling out, and very professional. So much of our careers is "playing the game" and you made the first serve. Good luck, I hope everything goes okay!

  8. In business you can't be afraid to toot your own horn. That card was a great idea and it made your point!

  9. Good strategy with the card... just remember we're all here and we love you and we're on YOUR side!

    I really loved your post on "firsts"... I hope you enjoy all of them, you earn each and every one of them.

  10. Seriously - I want to strangle the old boss. Or kick her in the mouth. Either one would make me happy.
