Promotion; with it comes more responsibility, more leadership opportunity and more demands. I came out to the Eurodam to install the B.B. King Blues Club band, a process that takes a week under normal circumstances and these were normal circumstances. What was unforeseen, however, was that the Automation Technician for the ship would resign just prior to my arrival and his replacement would not be available to join the ship until weeks later.
Fortunately, the technician I am taking over for in my new role, is still available and will be present at the next installation which I will now be missing. Hopefully things will get sorted out for the incoming automation technician so that I can leave before the end of the month.
It's the natural ups and downs; as we say in French "c'est la vie" and for many others, it's just the nature of the beast.
