To my fellow employees,
If there is one thing to get me through my job, it would be the numerous amazing people I've met there. I dreaded my first job, I was worried no one would really accept me, and they didn't; however, when I got hired at my new job, I was welcomed with open arms. To all the friends I've made along the three years I've been with this company, you can consider this my thank you.
I've met some honestly great and wonderful people. Each individual I've come in contact with at my job has had a story or experience that you can learn from, and each one has shared a part of themselves with me, and for that I will forever be grateful. Obviously, not everyone I've worked with has been amazing, but in each sense they taught me a lesson.
As I write this, I have a few particular people in mind, believe me you'll know who you are. I never thought I'd meet my best friends at this job, but I have. You guys listen to my rants, my breakdowns, and even a few lucky ones have gotten to witness me either being extremely obnoxiously friendly, flushed with anxiety, or oddly disgusting. If you've witnessed any of this, I consider you lucky. You've gotten to know me, understand me, and even put up with me for eight hour shifts, and for that I'm so blessed. I've hung out with you guys outside of work, and realized you guys actually care about my life, and I care for yours, and you're not just pretending to listen for eight hours on end.
Some specific people I've come to know extremely well and trust. Some people I've learned important life values and experiences from. Some have taught me what it means to be a good friend, a good listener, and even a good co-worker. Working with you guys is definitely far from perfect, some of you get under my skin, some of you are extremely lazy, and some of you are just stressful, but I know the majority of you unintentionally mean it all with love.
Thanks for being my best friends both at work and outside of it. You guys have always been there for me, you never judged me, and you always supported me. If I ever had a rough day, I know there are people at my job to turn to. Some of you have become like a mom figure to me, even an older sister or an older brother. I cherish you guys, and I really appreciate how much motivation you've shown me.
If I consider you one of my best friends and actually trust you, you can consider yourself lucky. But for me, I'm extremely grateful to have such selfless individuals such as yourselves. Thanks for every personal lesson you've taught me, for every experience you've ever shared, and for always being so open when you needed to be, for your co-worker.
Your favorite co-worker!
