Then the fit hit the shan. They did a round of layoffs. Our branch was the only one of the newly acquired branches that didn't take a hit. I assume it was because they never replaces Janis. They must also have cracked down on payroll budgets as Greg suddenly became concerned with all the hours I was working. (I'm expensive for a part-timer. I have been there 15 years.) So the Customer Service Manager and the teller supervisor worked it out and I am back to 24 hours a week (Or so...) Ivette, the crossed-trained teller will be half on our side of the lobby and half behind the teller line. It's a good solution, but we're still shorter staffed than we're used to. Our customers are not used to waiting. And I still am so far behind on paperwork that I will never die. But I will have more weekends off. We'll see how it sorts out.
