The old manager got fired over the phone, right in front of me. It was bananas! Gerry and I were closing up for the day when the phone rang. It was the regional manager, calling from Seattle, and when I answered he informed me he was about to fire Gerry, but not to say anything. He explained that after he fired Gerry I was to escort him out of the building and take his keys, then change the security code after he left. Gerry did not take the news well, and it took me an hour to get him out of the cannabis dispensary. After everything was done I called the regional manager back, who informed me I was acting manager of the cannabis dispensary until they found a replacement. I immediately said that I wanted to be considered for the job, and he told me to demonstrate my abilities by running the cannabis dispensary for the next week or so. It turns out that Gerry had been falsifying receipts so he could steal money from the cannabis dispensary without anyone knowing. Obviously he wasn’t as slick as he thought he was, and now he was fired and the dispensary owners were going to press charges against him! I went to work the next day and tried to do everything I could to make the cannabis dispensary look great. I only had a few days to impress the owners, so I started pushing sales, and brainstorming some new promotions to get new clients into the cannabis dispensary. Wish me luck!
