Um.... Excuse me???

So.... and I am still a bit shocked about this so you'll have to excuse me.

Today the CFO comes by my desk and says, "First Year, we're moving you today".

Really...moving me? Like to a new office? The CFO needs to tell me this? I guess things are slow over in assets aqusition today????

He then tells me to get all my crap and buzz him when I am done. Okaaaay then. So I box up all my shit, all the while hoping moving me doesn't really mean fired :) Then I buzz him and he starts walking me down the hall.

I notice we're moving out of legal and into where the accountants for asset acquisition sit....um ooookay I think. Then he stops at an empty office and says, "OK...heres your new office, the accounts payable specialist left and when I picked up your resume this seemed right up your alley. Bible Thumping Manager (will tell this story in an upcoming post) will be by in about an hour to get you started. You'll report to me instead of Insane General Counsel now."

WHAT???? Excuse me??? Did you just change my job for me? I hate accounting....yea yea I know I did accounting in undergrad, but I am in law school now, I want to eventually work in a general counsel's office. Thats really why I took this job for the cold bitch! At least I'm taking a pay raise, but what the fuck. Is that a normal thing to do?? Anyone??? Bueller??

On the upside I have a waaaay bigger and nicer office, no more crazy bitch boss, and more money. On the downside, I am not once again an accounting troll destined for days locked away in my office putting codes on bills and signing checks for more money then everything I have and will ever have will be worth.

Is it just me? Would anyone else be a bit....surpised and possibly confused?

That seems rather oddly sudden and random. Inexplicable, even. No question as to whether you wanted to do the job, nor any request to submit resume for the job, nor any formal interview process.

I think that's a load of crap - you're a law student working there for the summer to gain law experience, not do accounting! CFO sounds like a self-absorbed asshole.

Something similar actually just happened to me. I thought working in an accounting dep't would be a good way to make some money before law school started, but the second someone found out I was bilingual, I was approached at my little cubicle and got shifted over to be a translator (no bonuses like your pay increase, though). Only 2 weeks left, so I don't see a reason to complain, but wtf?
