“So do I get the job?” I ask happilyMarch 5, 2019 at 6:58 pm #60304
“Your typing skill is better than some of the secretaries we have ow. I have already send a recommendation for their approval for a position for you that I feel you can handle. I am waiting for their reply.”
I sit there and smile thinking on how I will change him into my woman.March 5, 2019 at 7:39 pm #60308
“That’s awesome. So should I wait here? “
I still don’t know who arranged an appointment here but I thank good for this chanceMarch 5, 2019 at 7:59 pm #60309
“Yes, I should get an answer soon. The main office will review my requests. It will go to the department head for approval. Our H R will review, and we will have an answer. If approve, they will do the contract for you to sign. During that time, we can go get lunch. The contract will be here when we get back and you can read it and sign it to start right away. Do you have any questions for me?”
I sit there knowing it will happen but I cannot let him know yet.March 5, 2019 at 8:12 pm #60310
“No not at the moment. But lunch sounds great!”
Tina is a very lovely person. She is so kindMarch 5, 2019 at 8:29 pm #60311
It is a few more minutes when my system pings loudly.
I go to the new email. He got the job and he will be my secretary. I was promoted to be the manager of the supply and shipping department.
“Congratulations Severin, you got the job. It will take the main office about an hour to have the contract ready for you to sign. So, we can go to the bar and eat while they are doing your contract.”
I get up from my desk and walk around it.
“Are you ready to go?”March 5, 2019 at 8:32 pm #60312
“yes sure tina let’s go to celebrate it”
I am the luckiest person on earthMarch 5, 2019 at 9:05 pm #60313March 5, 2019 at 9:21 pm #60314
I am Severin and just got a job hereMarch 5, 2019 at 9:38 pm #60315
“Good for you.”
He give Severin a menu to choose from and turns to Tina.
“Your cheeseburger, mac salad, and beer, are you done for the day?”
“That is right but no. The office is doing Severin contract right now. So, we must go back to the office.”
“That is fine, and you know your Cubs are playing the L. A. Angles now.”
He turns the game on.
“No, I did not but it is still only preseason. I am still worry about my Blackhawks.”
Tom turns to Severin and asks.
“Severin do you know what you want to eat?”March 5, 2019 at 9:58 pm #60317
Two cheeseburgers with no side dishes
and a coke pleaseMarch 5, 2019 at 9:59 pm #60318
So do you go here often tina?March 5, 2019 at 10:02 pm #60319
“Got it and you are allowed a refill on your Coke.”
He turns and leaves leaving Tina and Severin at the bar alone with the ball game on the television. Tina watches the game.March 5, 2019 at 10:04 pm #60320
“Do you understand this game? I just don’t get the rules.”March 5, 2019 at 10:11 pm #60321
I say to tina while waiting for the food
“I normally don’t watch sports in the television, I do it myself “
I say as I try to look strongMarch 5, 2019 at 10:21 pm #60325
“That is good Severin, but I love my Cubs, Blackhawks, and DA Bears.”
I don’t tell him I also played when I was Tim. That would be way to early that I was change here to Tina.
Tom comes back and gives Severin his Coke and I get a glass of ice water.March 5, 2019 at 10:24 pm #60326
“Thank you man” I say to tom
”Okay didn’t mean to be runde “ I say to tina “ I just hoped we could talk a bit “March 5, 2019 at 10:46 pm #60334
“No Severin you were not rude. But I am an Asian Woman so I can not play hockey a sport I love to watch. But we can talk. I know what department you are going to be assign to here. But not the Blackhawks they are having a bad year with the injuries to Crawford, our goalie.”March 5, 2019 at 10:57 pm #60336
“Really? Which department?”
I ask innocently hoping it will be on the top floor with a nice viewMarch 5, 2019 at 11:12 pm #60337
“You will be the secretary of the manager of the supply and shipping department. That is a very big department. They handle the incoming and outgoing shipping, supply department to handle all the other departments, and the mail room.”
Tom shows back up and gives Tina her burger.
Another plate has two burgers on it and he gives it to Severin. Tom goes to the cooler and bring out the condiments. There are bottle of mustard, ketchup, and mayo with little trays of slice onions, lettuce, tomato, and pickles. He also grabs a light beer and a beer glass and gives it to Tina.March 6, 2019 at 7:19 am #60390
“Sounds great. Who is going to be my boss?”
I ask here while watching tom bring the supplies.
”you’re drinking beer while working? Shouldn’t a beautiful girl like you drink something more fizzy?”
I say out loud without thinkingMarch 6, 2019 at 8:46 am #60398
Tom tells Severin. I am eating my cheeseburger.
“Company rules are a worker can have one alcohol drink with their meal if they are going back to work. The only exception are doctors and nurses that are operating in the afternoon and the emergency personal. That is why I ask Tina if she was off this afternoon or not.” Enjoy your lunch.”
I look at the television the Cubs game is rain out. DAMN it,March 6, 2019 at 4:15 pm #60436
I eat my burgers
”thanks for taking me here the food is awesome “March 6, 2019 at 5:35 pm #60455
I finish my burger.
“Yes, I love coming here and Tom is a good bartender.”
I finish my mac salad and finally my beer. Tom comes over and gives me a large root beer to go as I always have.
“Tell me when you are ready to go back.”March 6, 2019 at 8:34 pm #60472
“I can’t wait to go back to sign my contract “
I tell you enthusiasticMarch 6, 2019 at 10:31 pm #60486
“When you are done, we will go. I left my printer on so they can send it as soon it is ready.”
I sip on my root beer.March 7, 2019 at 7:22 am #60534
I finish my plate in no time
“Okay tina are you finished? Let’s go!”
I have already put the money for both meals on the tableMarch 7, 2019 at 8:32 am #60537
“Severin put your money away. Tom has put this on my account. It is my treat. Tom can you top this off for me?”
I put the cup on the bar and Tom gives me more root beer. We leave the bar and walk back to my office. We enter the office and I see the printer is working and printing out the contract. I look at my watch.
“We are a little early so let the printer finish its job. Sit down and enjoy your coke.”
I go to my desk and sit down with my root beer. Everything is set.March 7, 2019 at 5:36 pm #60581
“Thank you for paying “
We arrive at the office and the contrat is being printed
I sit dow and sip on my straw awaiting to sign it
”why early?” I askMarch 7, 2019 at 9:05 pm #60606
“I ate faster than normal because there was no ball game to watch. The contract was due to be in here before two and it is ten minutes before two. We are early. The contract is on time.”
I go back to my desk and turn my system as the printer continue to do the contract. It was a little over a minute when the printer stop. My system show the print job is done. The printer goes to stand by position waiting. I get up and go to the printer and take the contract and return to my desk. I start to check and count the pages.
“One, two, three……thirty sven, thirty eight. All pages are here.”
I take the last page and put it on top. I grab my pen and sign the contract that all pages are here and giving to the new employee. I slip the last page back of the stack and give it to Severin.
“Here you go, happy reading but watch out there is a lot of those legal terms in it to make anybody except lawyers fall asleep. I can give the nuts and bolts of the contract if you want that.”
