    I was never really into this Christmas/Holiday gift giving. I guess its a good idea for the Concierge though. Something travel related would be good. Find em some fare sales to Vegas :)

  2. It’s been years since work gave out gifts and had big lavish holiday parties. When it was just a couple of hundred of us, things were first class all the way. Now that we are in the thousands, nothing is done.

    Thursday a coworkers said they had to leave on time since they were going to the wifes company holiday party and I commented that I didn’t think any company did that anymore. They are a company of 18 so I guess small company’s may still do something this time of year for employees.

    When I was a kid my dad’s construction company employer would give out a bottle of Scotch to all the guys every December. Then the wives complained so the company started giving hams, so your ham comment made me laugh thinking back to my youth.
