True Stories of Hope And (Mostly) Despair
Follow Your Dreams
It's Monday morning, but I'm feeling good.
On top of that, today is a senior manager's fifteenth anniversary at the bank! Free cake for all!
We're standing around eating cake, congratulating the senior manager on her fifteenth anniversary at the bank. She waves her hand in the air, getting our attention.
"Thank you, Bob and team, for the bottle of wine," she says. "Actually, most of you don't know this, but it's been fifteen years and ten months since I joined the bank. After ten months, I quit to travel and follow my dreams... of course, inevitably, I came crawling back!"
Everyone chuckles and takes another bite of cake.
I die inside.
