If you get to work early at Third Degree, most likely you will not be the first person here, because Liz will beat you nine times out of ten.
So to surprise her this morning with balloons we had to sneak them in the night before.
It's a new thing we're doing this year to celebrate the anniversaries of our team mates' start dates at Third Degree.
You will also find at your desk that day a little booklet that's all about you.
We all contribute entries about how that person "serves it up."
Plus you also get a nifty handmade nameplate for your desk that says how many years you've been serving it up, with a favorite quote pulled from the book.
Actually it's Roy, our CEO's, anniversary today, too. I don't know if that counts because he actually started the company on his start date. But, heck, that probably deserves a lot more than balloons.
Or at least balloons that don't look like they say he's been "serving it up for 75 years!" Nice handwriting Jared. Geez. But, Jared is sort of the sole member of the anniversary committee, so I shouldn't give him too much grief.
Also, I'd like to point out that Roy is not weirdly sitting on the floor behind his desk in a tux. That's a cardboard cutout we made him a while back. But, when you're apparently 75 years old, you tend to revel in the glory of those pictures (or lifesize standees) of younger days. So we shouldn't give him too much grief either.
