Listening to: Vogue
Thought for the day: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ME!
I graduated from college one week, got married the next week, and then started working at DuPont (as a contractor) the following week. The seeds for my entire life were planted in 3 week’s time at the age of 21! It was too much………my marriage was a victim of this over planting.
After working at the DuPont facility in Old Hickory as a contractor for seven years, the company hired me. The date of my hiring was June 30, 1997. Today is my official 15th DuPont anniversary (even though I’ve been worked at the site for 22 years). Basically, I have a metaphoric DuPont logo tattooed on my butt………. next to the branding of George Washington. It’s the only professional job I’ve known. There have been times that I’ve hated the company. I’ve thrown my resume into the wind more than once. However, in retrospect, DuPont has been very good to me. The only reason I’d leave now is if I got laid off or had a chance to work in New York City.
So what’s up with the picture you ask? I got to choose a gift out of catalog chock full of stuff to celebrate my anniversary. The gifts in the catalog ranged from steak knives to jewelry to…………… a SHOP VAC. A FREAKING SHOP VAC?!?!? WTF? I’m thinking a Shop Vac for a company anniversary present is a message saying, “You Suck!” I went for the jewelry. I chose a fresh water pearl necklace (seen in photo)………… mmm hmmm.
Move over June Cleaver. KB is in town.
