One of the manager's at Patrick's job quit recently and they have asked Patrick to fill in until they find a replacement for him. They are doing a company wide search and they say that they aren't in any big hurry to fill the position.
Patrick is happy that they thought of him and is definitely excited to not be in the sun all summer long. He will also be done with work on Saturdays by noon.
I am excited that he is no longer on commission. It makes budgeting way easier! I'm also excited that his hours are pretty set too.
