Toot toot! Hey! Beep beep!
That's Mrs. Hillbilly Mom, tooting her own horn again. Being such a naughty bad girl, bragging. But not about herself, for once. This time, Mrs. HM is bragging about her first-born, Genius.
Celebrate good times! Come on!
Genius sent me a text mid-morning, because that's how these young whippersnappers communicate.
"Just got promoted to Software Engineer 2!"
"Wow! That didn't take long! Congrats!"
"Thanks! Usually happens at a year."
"Does it involve a raise?"
"Reminds me of the time I worked in the junk store, and got a 10-cent per hour raise. I was so proud."
"I am proud."
"Of course, your accomplishment is a bit more impressive. Do you have more job responsibilities, or work on different projects now?"
"No really, but only because I was already functioning at this level. I've been the only primary engineer on our team's part of this project since February."
"Good for them, recognizing your efforts, and giving you the title and compensation"
Let the record show that today was Genius's 5th month anniversary of his job at Garmin.
He's kind of a go-getter.
