A few individuals criticized me for posting such a cryptic message, so...the good news: I received a nearly $2 raise, and Sean was offered the job at Marriott Guest Services he applied for (Marriott Rewards Specialist, my first position with Marriott, as well). The extra cash will be appreciated, and I bought Sean an Xbox 360 (and a few other things) to celebrate. I won't/can't provide much detail regarding the last sentence in my status, but it involved the terminating of an associate, something I don't enjoy doing. It went better than expected, though.
I mentioned in Let's Call The Whole Thing Off our friend Mike was moving in with us. Well, that briefly fell through when the company he worked for was sold, but he applied for a job with The Ritz-Carlton and was offered the position a few days ago. So, he'll move in soon (probably this weekend), and all three of us will be/are employed by Marriott International. Speaking of Marriott International/The Ritz-Carlton, we launched The Ritz-Carlton Rewards today. Exciting!
