Today was my last day with Starbucks Coffee Company and I have to say that I have never worked with such fine people. They were everything I could ever have hoped for and treated me very well.
I knew earlier this week that they were throwing me a pizza party. That was cool in itself but when they surprised me with a going away present I was totally shocked, flabergasted is a better term. It came with a pound of my favorite coffee, Sumatra, a new coffee cup, card and 80 dollar Starbucks card. It is one of their new ones that you can registar and if gets lost or stolen Starbucks will replace it for free.
Only being their 9 months I didn’t they would bat an eye to my departure but once again I was proved wrong. It made me feel real good and it makes leaving difficult. I have never left I job I liked before so it is a little weird. But our team manager put it this way, "Toby I am glad it didn’t work out here permanetly…you have a much brighter future ahead of you". It’s a great boost of confindence going into my new position as a office manager and that my co-workers believe in me.
So as I write this I <tip my hat>, <raise my beer, Pyramid Apricot Ale> and I Solute YOU GUYS!!!
Thanks. Thanks for taking me in, showing me the ropes, letting me make mistakes, be apart of the team, allowing me to take on projects, implement processes and most importantly, be your friend.
Now the future is upon me and there is no turning back. What challenges will the next adventure have and how will I over come in order to succeed? I am accept the mission captain and will do my best but I have to give a heads up. I just might make a few mistakes on the way but I hope that is only human.
This weekend should be great to say the least but this is futurespect. Tonight I am meeting up with Mom & Grandma for dinner and then going to my mom’s house to do some super vegging. Then on Saturday I am meeting up with a buddy in order to finish his research paper I have been coaching him on. On Sunday it is my nephew’s birthday, Aiden YOU RULE!! He is going to be the big UNO, number 1. So my weekend is already filled up but hopefully Monday I can provide some sort of recap.
Onto other matters. Thanks to every one who has posted a comment especially the ones that help me through the difficult times. It isnt easy for me sometimes and i am not devoid of issues. My love life is one big issue but right now it makes me smile instead of sad. So Thanks <raising my beer> mmmmm that was good and just cranked up some Mike Jones!!
I will try to get around the net this weekend but I am not quite sure if I will be able to.
To my friends in time I thank you and keep it real,
