You may remember from last year, but I received a smartass gift from my sheet metal guys, which may or may not have been given in kind. I, however, LOVED it.
After several years of seeing everyone receive desk name plates from sheet metal, I got a bit cranky. Finally, when a guy THAT I HIRED got one, I became very vocal.
"whyyyy is everyone getting one but me????"
to which they replied, "your name is too freakin long"
After several back and forth arguing, I left for Christmas vacation. When I returned after Christmas, I had a brand new extremely and sarcastically long nameplate on my desk.
See it above with a normal size nameplate for reference?
I could not have been happier!!! I got a nameplate AND it was given in the sarcastic humor that I love.
a week or so ago, my coworkers were given sheetmetal Christmas trees.
Everytime I found one, I would text a picture of it to sheet metal with a "really? This guy gets one and not me?"
Today, the leader of the sarcastic Christmas cheerful giving to MAZ, came into my office and made a presentation, "on behalf of sheet metal, we would like you to have this" and he held out his fisted hand. I raised my open hand, apprehensively, to receive my gift.
I absolutely LOVE my tiny sarcastic sheet metal Christmas tree!!!!
(see it above next to the tree everyone else received)
I love my job and the guys that make it great!!!
