Now, I didn't even really know Employee Appreciation Day was a thing until an article appeared on the company intranet about it coming up.

From Wikipedia:
"It is a day for companies to thank their employees for their hard work and effort throughout the year. This day was created for the purpose of strengthening the bond between employer and employee."

I thought, "Oh, cool. I wonder what they're doing for it."

You know what they did?

They encouraged us to use the internal eCard system to send each other notes of appreciation. "Let's break a record," they said. "Most eCards sent in one day!"

And that's it. That's how my employer showed their appreciation for me.

I feel so... appreciated?


P.S. Yes, we broke the record.

P.P.S. No, I didn't get any eCards.

    So many days (appreciation, love, capitalism, etc.) instead of simply stop being dickhead to everyone all the time.

    They can show their appreciation by
    a) giving me a raise, and
    b) giving me the day off.

    An apology for being total douchebags the rest of the year would also be nice.
