Am special

My boss is Teh Awesome, originally uploaded by dcwriterdawn.

We just had a party for those of us who worked on the PFH, as Sabre lovingly calls our Project From Hell. (We missed you! You were very much with us in spirit!)

My boss presented the three key players (well, the two who were present) on the project a beautiful bouquet of roses and a very nice bottle of wine. We also enjoyed some champagne and appetizers. I even got a hug!

There are people who skate by in their jobs and make sure to do as little as possible so that they can go do whatever it is that they do. But those people aren’t hired at my company.

It was so nice to be honored — truly, appreciated — for what we were paid to do in the first place.

Once again, I know I hemmed and hawed along the way, but I knew we were going to do something great. And doing it for great people is the most-rewarding part of it all.

    I missed out on the champagne, but that’s okay… I had some lovely cocktails of my own. Too bad they were the injected kind! And the vicodin they gave me afterwards provided me with plenty of insane dreams to attempt to interpret. Weird weird dreams. Painting the walls with crayons? The hell?

    Anyhoo, it’s the little things like today that make all our hard work worth it. It’s nice to be recognized and acknowledged. I only wish all of the big PFH higher ups were as generous and considerate as your boss.

    Dude, that wine retails at around $70 a bottle. I know we’re worth it and all, but day-um!!!!

    Congratulations, Dawn. It is so wonderful to be appreciated. One will willingly make sacrifices and pull out all the stops if one knows that the bosses appreciate and commend excellent service and awesome accomplishments. I am very very happy for you, and heartened to know that in the workaday world, there are still bosses who know the value of saying thank you in a meaninful way.
