    Happy Founders Day!:happy2: I wonder what our four founders would think of their baby if they were still alive today. Would they be pleased? Amazed? Dumbfounded? Shocked? What say you?

    quite impressed with all of the technological advances but equally embarassed as to how far the company has strayed from it's original mission statement.

    They didn't tell us to start early so I hope whatever they do doesn't cut too much into my NDA delivery window.

    Not sure about the other 3 but Jim Casey's rolling over in his grave about his now publicly traded company.

    I heard when everyone goes into work today, their package cars will be replaced with brown bikes (basket and bell included) and receive a nickel for pay today. Happy Founders Day! : D

    We got cupcakes and soda. I told them I'd settle for those full-time jobs they owe us.

    I think we're going to be dissapointed today. We were told not to buy anything for founders day for cost cutting. We were also told to not buy anything out of pocket so that the entire district would be consistent.

    Cake we got donuts on break like we usually do every couple of months this way they could say they got us donuts for founders day. When really all they did was hand out yrs of service awards

    Just give me my blue envelope and get us out of the bldg. on time for once this week. Maybe zero misloads on a Friday. Now that would be cause for celebration.

    Upstate said "ass for the founders." I think that's funny.
