I worked for a man that didn’t let any holidays go by. He didn’t let an opportunity to celebrate and/or compete pass us by. It was annoying. Being competetive I did all kinds of stupid stuff like wear a wig and a pink shirt and call myself Christie Brinkley, wear a purple pimp suit – even die my hair green (even if it looked yellow, it WAS green) and any other thing I thought would get me a borland buck or some other random trinket of appreciation. Yes – I was annoyed by the man, he bugged me making me do all of these things. The actually … as much as I hated them… probably made me more productive – they certainly gave me something to win, some form of motivation and something people need in the office sometimes – something to laugh about.
Today – I’m LITERALLY the only person I’ve seen in my office even wearing a green shirt. (If your reading this late – it’s St Patrick’s Day). Nobody has even noticed.
Gary – sorry man, you were right!!!! Thanks for all the good times. I miss my old team. I hope you are all well.
