The Daily Teaser — 2-5-2015: Bend It Like Beckham

Right, I am up early.

I’m off to work, on an early start, today.

Which I can’t actually complain about: especially after being unemployed for so many years.

I DO know I’m looking at mixed feelings, about the fact our manager is moving on.   I’m happy for her, as she’s going to better pay and conditions.

I’m also a little worried: as I, along with my co-workers, don’t know who’s replacing her.

My boss is a bloody good one.

And easy to get on with.

I can only hope her replacement is on a par.

Finding a boss willing to hire you is hard.   Finding a good one?   Is harder.

Replacing them … ?   Is harder still.


But let’s move on, shall we?
