Random Doesn't play well with others

See this is what happens when the organisation you work for is in cost-cutting mode

There was a morning tea held at our regional office today for the handing-out of long service awards and Customer Service Superstar of the Quarter nominees. I wasn't a winner, but just being nominated was nice.
In previous years / quarters, these nominations and awards have been held at a proper white-tablecloth luncheon at a classy restaurant. Today's event was held in the meeting room, and on offer were microwave-warmed party pies, sausage rolls and chicken wingdings. No beverages, not so much as a cup of coffee. The whole catering effort seemed as though someone had just nipped down to Woolies and grabbed a few packets out of the freezer section.
Still, it beats the alternative. I do still have a job at least.
