I work for a major medical imaging manufacturer in the ultrasound marketing dept.  I'm the department assistant. We never had a holiday lunch in Dec so we finally had it today. After we sat down the Directer said "Donna, we have something for you as appreciation for all you do for us."  In the bag was an IPAD!  I started to cry.  I am so shocked.  I was thinking of buying a Kindle, but really wanted an IPAD.  I feel so valued and we all know in today's workplace that doesn't happen very often.

Well-deserved, Donna!  We've always known you were worth an iPad.....maybe even more ;)

What's the saying? "All things come to he who waits" - or something to that effect. Good for you Donna - and you're right - not too many businesses acknowledge a good employee so generously! Stay with that outfit......wink and keep up the obviously great work!!!

Congrats and enjoy your new IPAD.  It's nice to see there are still some companies out there who know how to value great employees.
