Because if I had a government job, I would be sleeping along with all those federal employees who don’t have to go to work today because it’s a recognized holiday. But I don’t, I work for an employer which doesn’t recognize Columbus Day as a holiday. So instead, I woke up [an hour late- not by choice, I just couldn't wake up; actually I woke up about 2 minutes before my alarm was scheduled to go off to TURN IT OFF so I could sleep for 5 more minutes which turned into an hour] dragged myself out the bed and got ready for work. As I got to work, a volunteer at the welcome desk questioned me as to whether or not I was an employee. WHAT??!!! No, I’m not an employee, I just like to show up to random workplaces on holidays because I don’t have anything better to do with my life and besides it makes me look cool.
Anyway, I got to the office and found my lovely blue box sitting on my desk. What is a blue box you ask? Well, a blue box is a very special blue box that is sent out to existing customers by the lovely folks over at 4imprint Inc. which contains free promotional item samples. This time, I received a travel mug, a pen/highlighter combo and hand sanitizer. I've also received several other samples in past blue boxes- numerous tote bags, pens, mouse pads, pencils, pocket mirrors, calculators, koozies, lunch boxes, calendars, sport bottles, mini tape measure, some very random stuff, etc etc.

There is a difference between having a conversation and speaking in a soft voice because you don’t want disturb other working people and whispering because you are gossiping and you don't want other people to hear you! Guess what? I CAN STILL HEAR YOU and it's quite distracting. Take that tomfoolery out the door.
