Back in January, our DM told one of our ASM's that she was going to be promoted to SM. She had been passed up for it 3 times, and proved all 3 times that she was better at their job than they were. She was also our acting SM for several months. Then about 2 weeks later, the DM visited, and told our ASM that she had changed her mind, and had hired someone else. And once again, that ASM is proving to be way better at the job than the current SM. She basically does both of their jobs at once.
