Wonder of Wonders, Miracle of Miracles

My boss stopped by the lobby desk yesterday, and I took the opportunity to let her know about the staff's feelings about the meal plan fiasco. I was as civil and rational as possible, saying that we RAs understood the compensation plan when we signed up and had made a commitment to the job, so there was no impending mutiny or anything silly like that. We were just, you know, kinda peeved about the whole thing but generally handling it like adults. She said she sympathized, would talk to her boss about it, and get back to us. She also said we shouldn't plan on any changes this summer.

Today she pulled me aside and said her boss was "all over it," meaning he understood why we were pissed and was actively working to get the RAs a 15 meal plan. It's not in stone yet, but positive change is likely on the way.

Well. For all of Monday's drama, it looks like civility and reason won out.
