25th aniversary at work

Recommended Posts

Well ,

Yesterday was my 25th year aniversary for me at work. They took a picture of me and handed me a envelope with some pictures of gifts and asked me to choose one......

See if you can guess what gift I decided on :whistling:

:lol: :lol: :lol: I thought item number 2005 was an "inflatable cushion", for those "senior moments/movements/predicaments".

 

No, I did not think that was your choice.

 

I am presently at 28 yrs./5 months/ 4 days in, at my workplace. Been there since June 22nd of 1977(right out of high school, wrote my last exam, got on my 10 speed, and 20 min. later was working), but worked part time until Oct. 2/79 when I was hired on full time.

 

I got a real nice certificate of appreciation(in a rather nice document holder, I am sure it was not cheap) in 2004, and a photo of me with our newer president and I shaking hands, :lol:

 

 

30 yrs. in will be different though. I will attend that ceremony and dinner.

 

 

Congrats Chris, I think some of us like you and I are a dying breed, with respect to 1 yr. renewable contract positions, 3 yr. contract positions, etc. My new director, who replaces our previous director(full time, got a new job in Dubai after less than 2 yrs. with us), who replaced the previous director(26 yrs.) is a 3 yr. contract employee, renewable upon review of performance. Guess I should not tick him off in any way, :lol:

WTG Chris, it's nice when you've got a job you enjoy enough to stick with for all those years.

 

I got a watch after 25 years, woulda rather had that fish'n pole though :Gonefishing:

.....I'm with you Lew, got a watch would have taken a rod and reel. Mind you I had 27 years in before I got my 25 year watch....lol I'm in my 29th year now and it would seem that a one job career these days is rare. Congratulations Chris.

 

Oh and I'm sure Carol's going to love the ring Chris. ;)

I'll choose the ladies watch. Such a gift may get you an extra few days of fishing this year. Congrats Chris on 25 years. Like the others, I got a watch for my 25th and entering my 29th. Before I can 'officially' retire with full benefits .... I'll have dang near 50 years in.

Congratulations on making 25 years! I made 25 at my company as well. Unfortunately, on my 25th anniversary I was lying in intensive care after having suffered a major heart attack. Now I am on LTD. It was a blessing in disguise. Now I can fish whenever I want to!

 

Keep up the good work.

Congrats on a quarter century with the same employer, that is a real milestone.

 

I would have chose the machine gun, in case the last 5 or 10 years were not so rosy!

First things first......

Thank you all for the kind words but this 25th year aniversary comes bitter sweet. In July our facility will be closing its doors and sending everything to mexico and will be sporting the new name "Continental" Some of our Siemens technology will be sold to Brose and the factory will remain empty until further notice. Sad really but I beleive things happen for a reason....One door closes and another opens.....

Now for the gift I have chosen........................... its the Stardic(stradic) reel combo :lol: Love their typo... Was there really any other choice ????

My wife Carol was gracious enough to pass up on my offer of diamonds and jewlery for my happyness,she's the best....

Besides I needed a new set up for this Junes G2G at Lakair and I think the Stradic/Compre combo is going to fit the bill . I here theres another Big Pike prize thats going to be on the table awaiting me :whistling:

Greencoachdog has all the big pike hot spots iconed on his GPS just incase we don't fish together that day so you guys can follow him around this time..... :D

 

Cheers !!!

Way to go Chris. I'm at 15 years now. On my 10th they gave me a GPS for the boat, I thought that was pretty cool.

Congrats on your 25 year milestone.

 

I have 31 years in the book with my company and for my 25th I recieved a great gold watch and a marvelous dinner and for my 30th they bought me a trolling motor which was kind of cool.
