One of my friends at work caught me at the elevator before I left the office today.
"Tina, I got my birthday card from the office, but it wasn't one that you made! What's up with that??!"
She looked shocked and horrified that she'd get something store bought and mass-produced because that hadn't happened in a a few years.
Well, HR's reasoning was because of "cutting costs." Anyway, it was nice to know that my efforts mattered to someone and she was looking forward to getting something that I made.
