Yesterday seemed like your typical work day... nothing special. The trades went out and were processed as usual and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Until I noticed, halfway through the day that one of my bosses was out of the office. When I asked the others where she was I got an unusual mix of answers. One person said, "Oh, I don't know!" The others said something about my boss' daughter school had called.
About a half hour later I was called out of my office and what did I see? They were all outside, with bento lunches (box lunches), a beautiful pink tulip plant and a gift bag -- all for me! I was speechless! My boss hugged me and told me, "Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary with us!" I wanted to cry! It was just SO sweet! I hadn't even remembered that it was almost exactly 10 years ago that I started working there!
I must've been in shock the entire afternoon! And everyone in the office was so thrilled that I knew nothing about it - because I have to say, we're all the worst at lying (which is a VERY good thing in our line of work!) and it's always hard for us to keep our surprise parties really a surprise. :)
And people wonder why I made some of the decisions I made last year regarding my job... I think yesterday was a BIG reason why I could never leave the people I work with. :)
I'm off to do some cleaning and look for "Hitch" reviews online. Hope you all have a nice weekend! :) *HUGS*
