So I’ve been working at my company for 10 years now, and in honor of my outstanding service (emphasis mine), I received this email:


Jay Barry has reached a service milestone today of 10 years with COMPANY.

Please be sure to contact Jay to recognize this important milestone.

If Jay is no longer with the company, please send an email to HR at THIS EMAIL ADDRESS. If you are not Jay's manager, please send the new manager name to HR.


COMPANY Human Resources


Naturally we laughed our asses of at this email as I can’t tell you how honored I am to receive such a To Whom It May Concern on this “important milestone.” (No really, I can’t tell you.)


But in other thoughts: 10 years? Damn! How’d that happen?
