After having been with the company for almost 30 years, I have found me and my friends who share the same longevity with the firm have lost interest in participating in many of the extra events given for us.
This year I wish to change that. Am just about at the end of my service, give or take a couple of years, so I will try to be a good team player and enjoy them all. That way, I couldn’t say “Oh, I missed that!” or “I didn’t go.” No more excuses.
It is a treat that our events are held in museums. This year, our Christmas party is going to be at Field Museum. I’ve attended a couple of our events there way back but last year I abstained. My excuse, too cold! Lame!
This time, even though two of my buddies backed out on me, with good reasons – Rachel was buried in work and Yoly . . . (what was your reason?).
Some other times I could have changed my mind too without my close friends to go with but I went anyway. After all I drove to the city, what did I have to lose?
Glad I did, it was fun. I hang out with friends and got to see a former boss I was very fond working with.
