First, call me weird... after trading in the BRZ for Highlander, I got depressed for over a month. Not full blown depression, but def felt depressed. Don't get me wrong, the Highlander is a great car with shit ton of features... but isn't that exciting to drive. Of course, the Highlander isn't a sports car & shouldn't be. Wife didn't care if I kept the BRZ or trade, it was my own decision. So I'm not blaming anyone but me. Just didn't expect I'll be this depressed from trading it in. To help me recover, I bought a ton of stuff for the Highlander and thankfully my wife didn't say anything about the spending.



Second, yesterday my boss called me up to her office. Which is nothing new. I do meet in her office once or twice a month. Yesterday was outside of "normal" meeting days so caught me off-guard, but nothing scary. Go further let me explain the background. Some know, but I'm Librarian. My main job is to check out/in materials for the patron and do new staff training for my department. Sub job is a system wide Circulation trainer plus tester. Train system-wide how to use Library programs and test some of the programs that Library is planning to buy and see if it's worth buying or there's any bugs in the programs. The meeting in a nutshell was upstairs (specifically Assistant Director) decided to make a whole new position and transfer me up under a different management, so I can do my sub job as a main job. It sounds like a good proposal... but it doesn't make sense.

1. Sub job takes up a limited amount of time. Of course, it varies with the amount of staff we hire. Example. Nov, I only did 8hrs of system-wide training vs this month over 20hrs so far (14~17hrs more). Feb it'll prob drop down to less than 10hrs.

2. If it was a promotion/raise, it might sound interesting, but it's the same paid grade. By any means, I'm not getting paid low... nor high. There's another system-wide trainer (different type of trainer than me), he gets paid manager level pay. He does nothing other than once a yr program, but he gets paid x2~x3 times more? IDK

3. I read the job description FIVE times... but it's very vague.

4. My department is short staff as is, why are they cutting more staff out more.



Weirdest one of all is, at the end of the meeting I told my boss it doesn't make any sense, so I'll email the AD (who I'll be under) to get some clarification. Without any joke, within 5mins of sending that email, Different AD sent the manager who's over my boss, to convince me to get it transferred. My boss doesn't like this transfer to begin with (along with 2 other supervisors), they're not gonna convince me to transfer. In that email I wrote "I had a few questions over this transfer, can we meet to discuss?" THAT'S ALL... nothing negative or positive. So in the meeting, my boss is gonna be there along with 2 AD. I don't get why you need THAT many people need clarification of this new job.



/rant
I would say tell them you can accept the position, but you will need double the pay. If they offer you 150%, take it. Then you will have the extra money to buy some beat up old FRS as a track car.

i've learned that 3 things really need to happen for me to be satisfied with selling a car.

1. it must be so fundamentally broken that it would cost dozens of thousands to repair otherwise rotted out unobtainable parts

2. i must run out of projects for the vehicle, or become bored/discouraged with the projects that i had planned.

3. there needs to be an alternative that suits the same role, that is fundamentally better..

i generally still regret selling all my previous cars, as i'd love to keep cars long enough to actually see the wheels fall off, but by the time #2 comes in, the valuation others place on my crap is too hard to pass up, as i could use it towards the replacements downpayment.

your brz didn't hit any of those marks, but you were trying to be a better father. #adulting. no one ever promised it'd be fun!

i'm a little surprised that you haven't learned to roll with the insanity. to expect librarians to be sane and rational is to expect a lion not to eat you.

Im always looking for a great noodle restaurant. There is this place that just opened and I was planning to go for my birthday coming up.

I can see it from the windows of my workplace across the river. I can see it, because it is on fire. Literally.
