team lame

dear company that i work for,

so this year for christmas, you decided to gift your employees with hoodies. hoodies that not only have our department name on them, but also our logo on the back......

while many of my coworkers find them cool (clearly they are lame) they make me feel like i am a
mathlete .

or part of the chess club

like a group of nerds that get together and feel jealous that the football team has jackets, so why can't we?

"take that socially popular football players!!"

so fine, we have them. whatever. but everyone (minus me) wears them while at work. while that wouldn't be too bad, everyone wears them with the hoods on and they are black jackets......

great. now we look like some crazed cult or even better. the uni bomber.

but they are warm. and my office is fetching cold. so i will wear it. sometimes. begrudingly.

but if someone suggests we all get our names embroidered on them, i'm out!

ewww, I don't know about that. I will say that one of the coolest gadgets I have received from a workplace was from the one I am at now. Just for shits and giggles, they gave everyone a sunglass holder that clips to the car visor and holds a pair of sunglasses. I seriously love it. Of course wouldn't we all just rather have a bonus? Back in 1998, when I was 21, I got an awesome $1200.00 bonus as a recpetionist at a small fluid power company. Damn this economy! That's probably not happening a whole lot anymore.

Embroidered company gifts are the worst.

That is hilarious.. The company I used to work for gave us fleece jackets with the embroidered company info on them EVERY YEAR as our xmas BONUS.

I have 8 of these mother fuckers in my closet. in 4 different sizes from the time i started, through my pre, during, and post preggo weight changes.

But we never had hoodies. I wish ours had hoods. We used them as our smoking jackets.

Love it. Too bad they don't just give you money, hu?

OMG, seriously my stupid job gave us company shirts once. And they guessed what size people wore and just gave that to them...mine was a 3X. NO shit. 3X. I was pissed.

Sounds like something Michael Scott would do.

We got cash. A small amount but it's better than nothing. Or free advertising for them.
