I’m thinking about it again… I work in the lodging industry and many years ago walked into a place to interview for a simple desk clerk position and was offered the Front Office Manager’s position instead. A position of a life time and I foolishly, stupendously stupidly, turned it down and walked out. I didn’t want to drive across town, I was scared, I didn’t feel as if I was ready, it would’ve been me everyone called when a guest with a problem wants to scream at somebody, a vendor with a problem, excuses, excuses… But in hindsight I was really stupid cause I think I could’ve risen to the challenge. Now all these years later I’m still just a glorified desk clerk, a supervisor without a title and barely making ends meet and the to rub salt in the wound the managers I report to are younger than I am…
