I was a bit astounded by my own brashness. But I wasn't going to get taken again. If I had to be brash and stubborn to create my own future, so be it. 40 41 Later that day the phone rang again. It was the manager. "Okay, how 'bout this, Jim? I got a job for you as a salaried employee a desk job, Jim. " "It's a deal," I said without thinking. The phone call was significant for me. I'd waited a long time and gone down some unexpected paths, but now I was finally making the change I had contemplated so many, many months ago.

I said, pointing to a small blue and gold shield attached to my shirt pocket. The shield identified me as a supervisor. " I asked again. Joe was dumbfounded. I ripped the shield off my shirt and tossed it on Joe's desk. Joe looked confused. "I don't need this and you don't need me if you're going to supervise my people. I quit," I said. With that, I turned and walked out of the office. "Wait a minute, Jim, hold on," Joe said calmly, trying to diffuse the situation. But I just kept on walking.

I didn't know if I got the job because the company thought I was the best choice or because some coworker with influence wanted me out of the office. It didn't matter. I finally was going to be a supervisor in the company on the shop floor. I didn't care if the company thought I was ready or not. I knew I was. I recounted all the lessons I had learned along the way. I remembered how I respected Duggan and his kindness. I remembered being held back by my supervisor on the floor and taken for granted in the job shop.
