Happy Anniversary to Me ~ 2/6/84

Oh happy day!

34 years ago on this day I started working at my first “real” job. You know, as opposed to all the fake jobs I had before. I know … don’t quit my day job.  I so overuse that real and fake bit. But I am easily amused and today is MY special day so sue me.  Wait! Don’t sue me. My money has all been spent.

I was such a baby. Who knew that I’d stay on this long? Especially considering I threatened to quit every other day for the first 6 months.  And we kinda ran wild … me and my coworkers in the output distribution unit. But what do you expect from a bunch of teenagers and an absentee boss? Bootleg whiskey in file cabinets (not mine!).  House shoe Thursday.  Paycheck poker.  Good times I tell ya!  I grew up here!  Cue music and tear drops.

Boy the changes I’ve been through. I could/should write a book. If you stop to think how much technology has changed in the last 34 years, that alone is mind-blowing.  For example, my feature photo circa 1986/87 was taken with a Polaroid.  The card stock spit out blank as we waved it around until the picture started to appear.  Today I used my phone to take a picture of a picture.  Shut the front door!!!!

Anyhoo, I have rambled on enough. A short close to say I can’t think of any place else I’d rather be.  I am in the promised land, living the dream.  Another day in paradise.

As always, more to come.

      1. Oh no, then you might wake up. I feel the same way about my new job. Compared to the drama fest I left behind I am walking on clouds and praying it doesn’t rain. 😉

    1. Same company but many jobs. After the first 6 months, I moved to property and casualty insurance. Right now I’m a Compliance Advisor in the Chief Legal Office.
