I've mentioned here before how much I like my job (I'm an insurance claims adjuster for those who don't know). Even though my coworkers and I work hard, we find time to have loads of fun together too. I really appreciate having a company that plans for its employees to have the occasional afternoon off to do things together as a team. It makes for a very happy workforce, with employees who are dedicated to providing top notch service. Sounds like I'm brainwashed, but it really is true.
We've had laser tag outings, trivia events, Polar Bear plunges and more. Our latest event is happening today... a Rock Band tournament. This afternoon around 8 or so teams within my office will squeeze in a few minutes between phone calls to battle it out, rocker style. My team spent an hour or so at my house yesterday, practicing and planning. You see, we can't just show up and rock. Not at all. We need to have costumes and posters and loads of personality (and perhaps the occasional afro wig). In fact, I just got finished painting my nails to go with our loosely 80s theme.
I figure the brighter the better. So wish me luck!! Our team stands a pretty good chance of winning this whole thing, but we've got some stiff competition. The biggest of which is probably my sister's team. We're gonna take her down!!! :)
