This is an email I just sent to my team:
To: OKS' team
Subject: Today's quitting time
Hi, team! Workin' hard or hardly workin'? <-- That is exactly how my dad would start this email.
Anyway, [Team Lead] confirmed that we are free to leave at 1:30 today so please log off or take off at that time. Just a reminder-I will be out of the office all next week. I'll have my Blackberry so you can reach me in an emergency.
Everyone please have fun, safe and happy holidays! See you next year! <-- That is exactly how my mom would end this email.
This is also exactly why I will never move up the corporate ladder.
I am currently working at home because two lights on my dashboard came on last night. My car's a Christmas miracle! Oh...no wait...it's a piece of shit! Sorry-got my sayings mixed up there.
Anyway, the good part about my car being horrible is that I am now working from home. Which means I am watching "Charlie Brown Christmas" while I work. And also blogging. Is there no end to how valuable I am to this company?
I just wanted to hop on here and make sure I bitch about my car. Oh no-I mean I wanted to make sure I wish you all a Merry Christmas. For real I hope it's your best one yet, and that you take some time to be thankful for the things you have. Like a working car. Am I putting enough negative energy out there on Christmas Eve yet? Seriously thanks to all of you who read this. You complete me.
One more thing...on Saturday the Okay Seriously family is going to Florida for a week. Please take a moment to eat it, bitches (Merry Christmas!). I don't know if I'll be able to post while there, but I'll definitely be Twittering. If you have done the math, that means I will be in Florida over New Year's. I will miss my friends greatly, but the thought of not having to make New Year's plans is making me giddy. New Year's sucks.
My car = suck
Working from home = rule
Christmas = rule
New Year's = suck
Florida = rule
You guys = rule
Merry, merry Christmas, everybody! Be safe, be grateful, be overeating, be pantsless (indoors only), be drunk and most of all be happy! For those of you that don't celebrate Christmas, be all of those things, too, and Merry December 25th!
