A rolling stone gathers no moss

Pebbles managed to get herself fired from her job selling rocks. I saw it coming, so when it happened, the only person in surprised was her. It was a bad fit and she really was never really into it. Honestly, I'm glad they pulled the trigger on her before she languished around there much longer.

Before her unfortunate dismissal, she had secured a large order of rocks from her former employer, but was waiting to submit it until she was on commission. The afternoon of her morning shitcanning, she called them to tell them to resubmit the order, as she was no longer with the firm.

The next morning, her former boss called and asked what it would take for her to come back and serve as the constr.mgr. on three new retail contracts he'd just landed. So, she's back with her prior firm, with a 25% raise, doing exactly what she wants to do.

  1. This resembles the theory, "Making yourself available for good to come into your life..." Or something like that. It proves that sometimes we don't even know what is good for or why the things that happen, happen. Good for Pebbles.
