At last its over….But what a ride its been. I was in my 17th year at Advantage Logistics. Can’t believe it. So many people have come and gone. But the best friends one makes are the ones at work. In all my years of work, I have made special friends that have stayed with me forever. This place is no different. I have friends from my first job, and then There was Plano Molding. You guys know who you are. Your all like family. We shared so much time and our lives together. The ups and downs of everyday living. The secrets, and we confided our problems to each other. We all guided each other threw everyday living. We spent more time together than with our familys some days. We all leaned on each other when needed, and gave words of encouragement. That’s what family is for. We can be apart for years, but when we see each other or communicate, we can pick right up were we left off. Advantage is no Different….So MANY WONDERFUL FRIENDS…..
This is my group in Pharmacy. They are a Fabulous Group. They got together the morning of my last day. While I was working in the back, they all got together and took this picture. They presented me with it that nite at my party. I just LOVE IT…
So I will tell you about my day. I got in trouble the day before, cause I wasn’t sitting in my seat when the bell rang….hahaha….so grade school….so the next morning I made sure I would get in late….haha….I just had to rebel. So waited outside till the bell rang and walked in. Oops, startup meeting over, Exercises had begun. So what to do?…..Bring out the camera…..hahaha….
Everyone was laughing…Would could they do “Fire Me”…..lol….And so the day began…I wasn’t to productive, cause everywhere I went some was stopping to talk to me. After 1st break, Allison mentioned I should take the camera back with me…..BINGO….GREAT IDEA….So I hide it in my pocket. Oh what fun we had.
These are some of the pics from the Audit cage and Vault areas…..Hmmmmm Hope I don’t get anyone in trouble. Leads and Supervisor sure didn’t know I was doing this. Hahaha….Later I was picking out in the U. That is the special name for it. Each line has an Aisle number. So as I was picking, I took some more pics.
I wonder what my rate was….hahaha…Probably 60 percent…Later Sherri came along. She is Pharmacy inventory. She presented me with a gift. lol. We have had a long time running joke. I don’t even know what started it. She has always called me vaginitis. haha….My friend Vicki B. is cuntilda. hahaha…Hilarious. But what ever it takes to get through the day. So her is my gift:
It is a repurposed troll that she found in her drawer. It is to be used as my New Dashboard Ornament. I just love her to death. The troll that is. haha…Love ya too Sherri. Then at Breaks and Lunch, I was presented with a cake:
The cake was from Carol and Tina. It read: “YOU MADE IT POOPY PANTS WE LOVE YOU“….Now isn’t that special. Tina is such an AWESOME person. Such a jewel. We all love her dearly. She helps us all get through the day with her laughter that only she can bring. Her smile is one you will never forget. So has no idea what she means to everyone.
” WE LOVE YOU TINA“.
Here are some more pics of people in the warehouse as I walked through for breaks. They would stop me and I would take their pics. haha…
All such GREAT PEOPLE….
Finally the end of the day…..Party Time at Cabin Fever in Peru…..
Everyone started showing up right after work…3:30 and some later cause their schedule was later. And some old friends from work also came…..My awesome friends Fawn and Jen, who now longer work their. Not their decision, but oh well, company loss. On to bigger and better things. Both of you girls look : “FABULOUS“
We had such a good time visiting and they gave me presents. One present was the pictures of them and a collage from the past. So many memories. Thank All of you for your friendship and support through the years….Some of us have all been together for almost 17 years. Deb and I worked at Plano together. We have worked together since 1992…Wow…That would be 22 years. Just Amazing. I wouldn’t have made it without all of you being their everyday. Now its your turns to help each other and keep up the fight. With out each others friendship it would be almost difficult if not impossible to make it. And just remember, its not over…..Ill BE BACK…..We are all friends. We will get together next spring when I get back, Cause that’s what Friends do….Right….So its not …………..”Good Bye”………….Its…………”SEE YA NEXT SPRING”……
So What does 17 years mean?
Amazing though, It was announced at Cam meeting that I was retiring by management, but, actually it was just an after thought….they almost forgot….Did anyone in Management come and personally Congratulate me….No…only the one I didn’t want to see….and Ya all know who that was. Did anyone meet me at the door going out….no…..Did I turn in my badge…No….So did I clean out my locker…..no…Gees, My seniority number is even under 10…..Must be glad to see me go…
P.S……………So……… NOTE TO HOME OFFICE…………….#954 has left the building……….You can cancel the insurance again……………..Carry on…………….
