As much as I point out the annoyances about things that happen in the workplace, (for instance, right now there is an incessant hammering going on) I thought that for just one week, I would try to put all those things aside and be thankful. So I decided to make a list of things I’m thankful for.
Here it is:
- Thank you commuters for taking off the week of Thanksgiving, my drive into the office this morning was a breeze.
- Thank you Black Friday for distracting my coworkers from doing actual work— as they are too focused on plotting their course of action to receive as many door busters as possible.
- Thank you to my coworkers who are getting a jumpstart on the holiday (eating) season and have already started to fill the communal kitchen with delicious baked goods.
- Thank you to those teammates on vacation this week, because they thought it would be a slow time, but them being out makes my supposed slow week crazy.
But in all seriousness, I truly am thankful for the wonderful team, I get to work with everyday at Beyond.com. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and I hope you all have safe holidays!
