I got a call from "Boss Lady" a little bit ago. She had a little story to tell me...
She said that this morning, first thing, she came down to the shop here in town, but she parked across the street where she couldn't be seen from the shop. She then walked across to the McDonald's that is right next door to the shop, and sat there watching for about half an hour. After half an hour of watching "Dude" sitting around and doing nothing, and "Big Dude" doing a little bit of work, she decided to call them up from her cell phone.
When she called, she asked Dude how things were going, and he told her that they were busy cleaning and such. She asked him what he was doing right at that instant, and he said he was busy cleaning, but didn't go into detail. She then told him that it looked to her like he was just sitting around doing nothing, and hung up on him.
As she walked across from the McDonald's to the shop, Dude told Big Dude that he didn't need his mother watching him work. When Boss Lady got there, she told Dude to clock out. He clocked out and stormed out the door without saying a word, got in his vehicle, and left in a big hurry.
Boss Lady told me that she doesn't expect that Dude will be back to work, and that this is "the beginning of the end." She told me that I will be getting my title of "manager" very soon, and that I will be in charge of Big Dude an New Dude.

Dont let that manager position get pushed back, is it in writing?

Not yet. I'm not worried about it, personally, because the people that run the shop are very reputable people.
As of today, "Dude" is no longer employed there. "Boss Lady" said that she's going to put me in the manager position right away after this weekend. Tomorrow is the last day in the current pay period, so that will work out nicely for everyone.
