it's team appreciation week at work. which means when i got to work...i got to see the giant banner hung outside saying "team appreciation week". which i thought was it...cuz let's face it...they're paying us peanuts, maybe save that moola for some bonuses, huh?
but oh no....then i walked in the door. where every few feet is a white piece of paper with a neon piece of paper skewed behind it, and printed on EVERY. SINGLE. SHEET. is a motivational something...like "there's no I in team." or "working together works". or "sticks in a bundle are unbreakable". or "TEAM: together everyone achieves more."
and my personal fave...."ducks fly together". nothing motivates me like early 90's children's hockey movies.
and that's just what i can see from my desk. there are more. LOTS more.
i just don't get it....if you want to motivate people...how about making sure the sales staff works past 3pm friday, when news peeps are slaving away till 11:45pm. how about giving us something more than movie tickets on our birthdays. or anniversaries. or how about NOT calling people in for 3 days of the crappiest shift in the world because the regular person HAS A PAIN IN HER SIDE. a pain. in her side.
how's about she's a pain in my ass for being a little baby?!?
on to happier things....like the newest addition to my summer wardrobe. i ordered those 2 dresses from last week from target.com...and i made the mistake of browsing around the site some more (bad hales, i know!).
BUT...look what it got me!
hello my pretty pretty one.
doesn't it look like a stella & dot creation? doesn't it look fancier than the $40 price tag?
and yes...i did "technically" pay $40....but i had a gift card for $25, so with that, the necklace and 2 dresses set me back only $55 total. which is awesome.
won't this look SO hot with a white tee and my sperry's?? or a white dress and some sandals. or black casual dresses? or....anything.
so what's your favorite motivational phrase?? got anything for me this monday morning?
