Our unit chief gave the ladies at the front desk (Ruth and I) lovely mini rose plants and our fella, candy. We were pleasantly surprised.
All day long we heard carryings-on in the conference room on the other side of the wall, but we are used to that. There are often meetings and some of them sound fairly jolly. Supervisors tend to bring treats to staff meetings. We have nice bosses.
This afternoon one of the gals from another section asked if I was coming into the conference room. No, I'm not in that meeting. Next thing you know one of supervisors rounds up Ruth and I (Sean had to leave early). The room was full with a table full of goodies. When we walked in everyone started clapping. The perks of working the front desk, I guess. Any excuse for a party. Nice cards signed by everyone in the office, too.
We never suspected a thing. They are very pleased with themselves.
