Every other month or so we have a meeting in the morning for any company changes and campaigns. This time we watched a few videos about the holidays before the general manager moved on to his recognition piece. His power point slide said “PLATINUM” and he spoke a little bit about how someone had achieved the top status for their efforts and blah blah blah.
He clicked his remote and the screen showed a “…”
“Can anyone guess? No?” Then he flipped to the next slide and it was a huge picture of this on a 60” TV:
Everyone started cracking up and yelling, “AUTUMN!”
THAT was unexpected.
After the meeting a new hire went up to me and said, “I hadn’t been here no more than an hour and I knew exactly who that was supposed to be!”
I’m still getting the occasional comment that I pretend to understand.
“I didn’t know you were famous.”
?!-oh,the slide thing.
“You should have,” I answered, in my faux-serious way.
