I AM STAYING WHERE I AM!
It has been an extremely difficult decision!! All of your comments and suggestions helped SO much more than you could ever imagine!
I ended up calling the secretary that I would be replacing and talked with her "frankly" about the position. "New" boss is a very nice man, however, he is a stickler about the time thing. Will not let you work through lunch to make up time for say a doctor's appointment or something for your child. Bonuses ~ Christmas only~ (I get approx four a year where I am now) ~ raises come in April and everyone gets the same amount, usually small ~ cost of living raise. This definitely gave me something to think AND pray about.
I made my list like you guys suggested: Pros and Cons!
Then , I called my "now" boss and asked him to meet me at the office on Saturday afternoon, that I needed to talk to him. He said okay, dropped what he was doing and came to the office. I could tell when I saw him that he was afraid that I was going to tell him I was leaving. I told him I had been offered another job and that I was honestly torn about what to do.....I told him I had lamented, cried and prayed over the right decision.
And then he said....please don't go! You are the best secretary I have ever had and you make working here so much more pleasant!! I will give you a raise, I will lighten your stress, I just really don't want you to go!!!
LORD HAVE MERCY!!! I said why in the cottin pickin world have you not told me any of this BEFORE??????
Him: I thought you knew!
I told him I would stay and his exact words were "I sincerely, sincerely, sincerely appreciate your staying with me."
That is THREE sincerely's!!
Then two of the other attorneys in my office called me and told me they didn't want me to go either!
I must be pretty darn good! WHO KNEW????
I told'em I wanted a BIG raise!! lol
Well alrighty then!! Decision made!
NEW DELIMA: Call "new" boss tomorrow and tell him I am not coming!
Could one of you call him for me and handle that "little" detail? I am sure he will understand...
And again, thank you all for being there for me during this! It was really HARD for me! I just love you guys!
Have a GREAT week!
