Every year, my husband's company gives us a gift certificate for a free turkey. After almost ten years of him working there, we've come to rely on getting the turkey. There are some guys at his work that have been getting a free turkey from his company for 15 years or more.
This year, they evidently aren't giving turkeys. We have always received the certificate by the end of October, and it still hasn't come in. However, they did have a gift for him yesterday... A freaking mouse pad with the company logo on it, as well as a list of locations and their phone numbers. Some guys got hats or mugs.
It's like they decided to give their promotional items to the drivers instead of the turkeys this year. What good is a mouse pad for feeding us dinner?!
Oh- and while they are busy complaining that the company is not making as much money, they just decided to sponsor a golf competition for all the sales people, complete with prizes.
