6:15 This is Administrative Professionals week and today is Administrative Professionals day. There are millions in the workforce that provide for us so much. It's great to celebrate and recognize the hard work they provide on a daily, weekly and yearly basis. Here a few pages that provide some fun facts about Administrative Professionals:
6:45 NAME GAME
These parents set up a website where people could vote on what they should name their new baby. Unsurprisingly, the choices they ended up with were…strange. Suggestions included Megatron Salad, Streetlamp of-the-sea, Yana Don’t-Blink and Chalupa Batman. The winning suggestion, out of 150,000 votes, was “Cthulhu” – which is also the name of a tentacle-faced science-fiction monster. The full winning name was Cthulhu All-Spark, but that was ultimately vetoed by the parents in favor of the much more normal Amelia Savannah Joy McLaughlin. Bo-ring!
Thank GOODNESS, common sense prevailed here. http://metro.co.uk/2014/04/22/couple-let-internet-decide-name-of-their-baby-internet-chooses-cthulhu-all-spark-4705127/
7:15 Nothing like being neighborly, huh? This very nice guy "Chris" sent his new neighbor a wonderful note welcoming her to the building with some "stuff you should know". He also gave her a gift card from Applebee's to boot. It's unfortunate that people don't see the good in others anymore. The woman posted the note on Reddit and it went viral. People are saying the guy is trying to score and all kinds of other nasty things. THat makes me a little sad.
LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOR…
Ever since a letter from a tenant to his new neighbor went viral, the internet has been debating whether it’s sweet or creepy. In the letter, a photo of which was recently posted to Reddit, a man named Chris welcomes his neighbor to the building, sharing useful phone numbers, info on trash collection and other helpful tidbits. He even offered to help the neighbor with her gas tank and included a gift certificate to Applebee’s. (That part has some wondering if the whole thing isn’t a marketing stunt.) Chris writes, “I know getting settled can be crazy and time consuming, so dinner is on me. Have an evening without having to worry about cooking. Happy house warming.”
It's a shame we are all so suspect these days.
Have you ever moved in and been creeped out by your neighbors?
8:15 If you order a bunch of junk online...Have you heard of this new service?
PARCEL DELIVERS YOUR PACKAGES ON YOUR TIME
Now THIS is customer service. A new company seeks to end the vicious cycle of missed deliveries. Parcel ensures your online orders will arrive at a time when you’ll definitely be home to receive them. Here’s how it works: go to Parcel’s site and set up a free account. Your account is associated to a Parcel-specific shipping address. The next time you buy something online, enter that address instead of your own. Parcel intercepts your package, then texts you to arrange a delivery between the convenient-for-most hours of 7 pm and 11 pm on weeknights. The total cost? Five bucks a package. Sounds like the best delivery deal since Amazon Prime. Want to know more? https://fromparcel.com/
