OK so this is totally random and stupid, but it’s on my mind so I have to get it out.
I want my sock monkey back.
At my old, shitty job, we had a person of the week kind of thing. Basically if someone did something above and beyond, something good, reached a milestone, etc, they’d get the “trophy” to display on their desk. After voting on it for about a week, we agreed that the trophy would be a sock monkey. I love sock monkeys so I donated mine to the cause. He had been tucked away in a Rubbermaid box so I thought it would be fun to have him at work where I could see him every day and he’d bring a smile to peoples’ faces.
And then I was let go about a month later and totally forgot about my sock monkey. I remembered all the other personal stuff at my desk and made them pack it up and send it to me, but forgot about my monkey. I don’t regret taking it to work but regret that in my shock I forgot about him when I demanded they sent all my other stuff to me.
This is not a rant about work or my days at eHell. I just am thinking that someone made that sock monkey for me and it was stupid to leave it there. I wish I would have remembered about it and asked for it back with all my other stuff.
So now I want it back. Not that one that everyone has sneezed their germs all over. But a new one. Maybe a tiny baby one. I’ll have to check on Etsy or something.
