Party for Departing Student

May 29th, 2013 at 09:48 am

I have had an awesome student worker for four years. He started working for me his first week as a Freshman and now he is graduating. He already has a job lined up with the Department of Defense. He is really bright. What's more, he has always been a great help to me, always cheerful, always willing, always reliable.

So we're having a party for him today. I spent $19 on treats and supplies, and put $50 on a gift card. The rest of my department contributed too, but I did the most, since he works for me. I know he will appreciate it, but I think he is also going to be embarrassed. He's that kind of kid!

Other spending yesterday and today:

It cost me $7 to mail a box of books to my sister.

Spent $1 on paper towels.

Sent $20.13 for my cousin's daughter's high school graduation. Class of 2013. Get it?

And I also renewed both my license plate and driver's license for $133.

I found a Canadian quarter yesterday -- so disappointed! I also found a penny, which was legal tender. Smile

    All money is good money! I wish our student help was all that reliable.

    I've had unreliable "help" in the past, which is why I appreciate him all the more!

    What a lovely thing to do for a student transitioning from student to the workforce. I'm sure he'll treasure the opportunities and lesson you taught. There are tons of Canadian tourists in your city, trade them the quarter for American, I'm sure they won't mind.

    Reliable "help" is often difficult find.

    Clever CB, on the 20.13 on the graduation amount. Very clever!

  5. CB in the City Says:

    It IS clever, but not my idea! The graduating members of the class of '13 are giving that amount as a senior class gift -- that's where I got the idea!
