For all to see -
It's not often anymore that someone actually works for the same company for 20 years!
But I work for a good company -
We have one employee who just hit 40 (yes FORTY) years working for this company.
Many of the employees who work here weren't even born when Dean started to work for Jim. Where were YOU in 1973? The next guy down has worked there for 28 years - me at 20 -Three guys coming up behind me at 18, 17 &; 16 years - and I think, there are 5 between 10 &; 15 years.
Like I said, it's a good place to work.
When you've been there for 20 years, you get a pretty bouquet of flowers - (actually, I got flowers at 10 years too...)
(Don't look at my messy desk)
And you get balloons (which went home with a co-worker for his little girls)
And a pretty basket of African Violets from an old co-worker -
And you get to throw a pizza party for your co-workers - (the boss bought the pizza) - 6 of these 12 inch pizza's disappeared like "poof" - and there was a big Caesar Salad and three dozen cheesey balls to boot - Whoosh - watch out for the stampede! Not a bite left!
And there was cake too - Thanks to my co-workers Nina for picking out the cake and the flowers and Drew for playing Susie homemaker and cleaning up before we left, so I didn't have to.
All in all, it was a Momentous Occasion!
The next party? - I'm thinking 5 or 6 years - will be the retirement party. Whoopee!
