During the times that I don’t play mom/housewife or “speed racer” on the sidewalk I work in a very large company, supporting a director and 5 of his ‘leads’ (plus their employees).
As some of you might have read, my boss broke his leg in a skiing accident over a month ago and is still at home. So every Wednesday he calls into the weekly meeting to keep up with what’s going on. Today one of his guys asked me to attend this meeting, which I have done in the past so it wasn’t anything surprising.
In the meeting they presented me with a very nice card and an $80 gift certificate to the Columbus Running Company for Administrative day. I was so excited I about gave them all a hug. Sure beats the Olive Garden gift certificates I have gotten in the past (yes even though it is my favorite chain restaurant).
A few months ago I had put a bug in one of the ‘leads” ears telling him that I’d rather have a certificate from the Columbus Running Co this year. Woot…and they listened. I am very lucky to work with co-workers that I like, that happen to like me, and appreciate what I do for them.
The certificate is valid for two years, which gives me ample time to browse their small store…I am excited!
