Today was co-worker L's last day. We gave him a great send off as he will be missed. He was one of the first people to be-friend me here and he truly felt like a friend even if I only knew him for a short while. I will miss him.
But in proper AR style we ate and drank to celebrate the occasion. I've never been at a company that can honestly congratulate an employee moving on and thank them for the service they've given. AR did just that and beautifully.
We had a typical Friday company BBQ and L sat as shifts of people came to say their goodbyes. Then we had a surprise beer Friday complete with cake and banners and speeches. It was amazing. I love this place.
So, good luck L and congratulations - hope to keep in touch!
