Note to self:
Do not take April Fool’s day off. Coworkers when armed with information like “man, I don’t see myself ever getting married”, or “man, I’m sure glad I don’t have to ask permission to go somewhere”, or the ever popular ”weddings are like funerals, only with better food” they tend to use it against you. One side of the coin it sucks having your wall spammed, but on the other side at least I know what they were up to. We work in an environment where nothing good comes from silence.

Let’s just face it, we have it pretty good. Your car won’t start? At least you have one. You’re a little late on your mortgage payment? At least you have one. Having some difficulties at work, well, let just face it, you’re lucky you have a job at all. The same can be said about so many aspects of our lives. Even those most fundamental, rudimentary things we tend to overlook and take for granted. Even those things that mean the most, like family.
“Culture”- it has become a popular buzzword in the workplace in recent years. You hear about this concept in several variations such as: Organizational Culture, Corporate Culture or Company Culture. Since the images of “Corporate” or “Organizational” Culture bring up negative connotations for me personally, I prefer to refer to it as “Company Culture”.

CablesAndKits.com is located near Atlanta, GA – we are not used to it being 25° F outside every morning! Needless to say, I have elevated my coffee intake to “addiction level” in order to fight the cold – or at least make it more enjoyable.
It seems like we were just having our Thanksgiving Chili-cook-off yesterday, but all of the sudden Winter has come upon us in full force. By this time everyone has had one-too-many leftover turkey sandwiches and we’re all ready to get into the Christmas spirit. [Read more…] about Merry Christmas from CablesAndKits
