another prize! yay!

Yesterday at my work they announced the list. Because I was running an offsite all day and couldn't attend, they already told me I was on the list. So I knew before they announced it, but watching the congratulations emails come in was still a bit of a thrill.

"Peter, you've just been awarded with the company's prestigious service award! What are you going to do now?"

"I'm goin' to Disneyworld!"

Literally. Each year the company identifies the high performers in sales and service. To win, you must be nominated and granted a service excellence award. Then, from those winners, you must be selected for a quarterly "best of the winners" award. Those quarterly winners make up the pool from which they picked... me. (Also a large number of others. The company has 160,000 people, after all.)

So in May I'm off to and all-expenses paid trip to Disneyworld with one guest.

The bidding for that guest spot is now open. Leave your bid in the comments.

I meant to say "now" rather than "no."

That just gives me one more opportunity to say way to go peter!!!

If I didn't think Maria would do her very best to kick my a**. I would jump up and down yelling, "pick me! pick me!"

j/k. Congratulations!!! This is very impressive indeed...although not a huge surprise as you have worked very very hard in the past year.

OK, but "jumping up and down yelling" is not a real bid. Is it?

Maria said...

Ok, so I'm going to kick your a** for even opening up bidding in the first place!!

See, I'm hoping the bids will make it worth the cost.

Just kidding, dear!

Throw in a Charleston and the Electric Slide, and you might have him :-)
