the girl who is laughing


So, if you've been following my rantings, you know I have a love/hate relationship with Subway. Love the sandwiches (when I can get what I want), Hate the customer service. So I wrote a letter of complaint to the owner of the franchise. (I can be diplomatic when I need to) I pointed out several basic cutomer service issues, explained how the staff should be trained, and expressed frustration at not being able to correct the issues myself. (I'm a bit of a busybody and am convinced I would be happier if everyone worked like I do, lol!)
This morning I received a phone call from the owner. And here's the funny part--she offered me a job managing the store I have so many issues with! And what is even funnier is I am actually considering it! I'm trying to work out in my head the best way to schedule things so I could actually do it, lol! Then I realized I have too many questions about how her operation is run, and the fact she explicitly mentioned how difficult it was for her to get a good manager for that store...makes me a little wary. But I figure, what do I have to lose? It won't do me any harm to speak with her, so Monday I'm going to do precisely that. Perhaps I can offer my services as a freelance sutomer service trainer. That is something I could work around with my current job and definately something I know. Who knows what could happen?
