Today I was asked to come into the conference room for a meeting. When I walked in, I found every member of the department already in there. The walls were adorned with signs...
We're so happy you joined us!
Welcome to HR!
It was a surprise party to welcome me aboard!
I was floored. What a wonderful surprise!
They had cookies and fruit, and they gave me all kinds of stuff--a windbreaker, a blanket, a second blanket made for picnics (it's made to roll up small and has a nylon lining on one side to keep it dry), a t-shirt and some other items, all bearing the hospital logo.
It really made me feel great!
