I don't think anyone from work reads my blog

email to my boss
I got the results from my Acct Tech oral exam. It concerns me for the welfare of the State that I actually passed. Barely, but passed. Ranked #2! Jackie says she is number 3 so I suspect that no more than 3 or maybe 4 of us took the exam. Before conversing with Jackie, I assumed only 2 people took it.
Thanks for all your help and encouragement!

from my boss:
Congratulations!!!! That’s great!! I’ll talk to Dorothy and see if we can do an upgrade in place. Please keep this confidential until I have spoken with Dorothy.

a little later from my boss:
We are going to upgrade you in place. I will start working on the paperwork to do this, I’m not sure how long it will take but hopefully they will back date it to the day you became reachable on the Accounting Technician list. I’ll keep you in the loop. Keep this to yourself (around work I mean…of course you can tell your family J ).

(surprisingly, Dorothy, our acting unit chief, sat on my oral exam, so she knows how really badly I did)

How the Lord has blessed me with this job!!!


  1. Well that is great news! Congratulations!!!

    But you could have waited to publicly post it until after it's common knowledge around work! lol Hopefully you're right that they don't read your blog!!! ;)

  2. Perhaps the most important part of the oral exam is to determine if you'll try to smooth things over or admit that you don't know something and find out how to do it right.
