So, the Old Shop made me an offer this past week.
I took it without even giving the New Store a chance to make a counter offer.
Sorry, New Store. I like your owner and the people who work there, but the vibe just isn't me. That said, I feel bad about bailing so soon. It costs about $200 to put someone on payroll and even though I thought I'd be returning to the Old Shop I didn't expect it to happen so soon. So, I offered to work the last week there gratis, as compensation to the owner.
Yeah. I know. Y'all probably think I'm stupid, but I prefer to think of myself as honorable.
Does that sound pretentious?
Anywho, when I go back to the Old Shop it'll be part-time to start off with. Three days a week: Friday, Saturday and Sunday at $10 an hour. Later, when we start carrying new comics again, I might shift my days or maybe get them extended.
I'm really looking forward to being back at the Old Shop. The other day, while I was watching the place while the new owner went to Celebrations, an old customer actually gave me a big hug. He said it was great to see me in the store again and he hoped I'd be there the next time he came.
I can't think of any place else I've worked that something like that's happened.
It made me feel quite warm and fuzzy for a few seconds.
Anyway, my last day at the New Store is Free Comic Book Day. Then, I start back at the Old Store the next weekend.
I am so looking forward to it!
