I'm a bit of a "nervous nelly" today. My soon to be new manager left me a phone message and said he needs to speak with my current supervisor to confirm when I can start there AND needs a work reference. I thought the 2 references I gave from my missionary work were good enough - he indicated that last week, but now he says he needs a work one... perhaps HR told him to get one. Please keep this in your prayers tomorrow. I do have one person (Joanne), at work that I think is my best bet for a good word about me...I am a dependable worker but there has been so much "bad" stuff and she has taken sides with the "others" at times. She was recently named as the new supervisor in our section when a few of us complained about bullying from our other supervisor. I am not sure what will happen if she is asked how my attendance has been...not that I want her to lie, but it paints me in bad light....if it comes to that I'll talk to Ian (the new boss) and just have to say it was something personally and not reflective of how I usually am....I have a 20 year work history and records show that this is the first time I've ever had to do this! I'm worried about it but trying to surrender it to the LORD! Father God opened this door, surely He won't slam it shut. Sigh! I'll be relieved when I have the official offer in writing.
