As you recall, I got:
- Pair of AMC Movie Theater Tickets to Mr. Contract File Clerk and Mailman.
- Bottle of Amaretto di Saronno to admin asst.
I'm happy to report, all seemed very thrilled with the gifts I selected. My administrative assistant said she just recently finished off her bottle of Amaretto at home. (I was right - it's her favorite drink.)
The file clerk was excited to take his grandkid to the movies.
My mailman even left me a small note: "Thank you so much Miss Shtinkykat. The ticket even comes with a drink! Have a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year! David the Mailman".
Before I pat myself on the back, though, I have to confess that I am going to give my "fall back gift" to the one person I forgot to buy a gift.
The morning security guard at my work is unfailingly helpful and cheerful despite the fact that she's suffering from MS. It's clear that MS is taking a physical toll on her, but she makes sure none of the tenants are ever burdened with her problems. I'm embarrassed that I completely forgot about her and the gift card certainly does make it seem like she's an afterthought.
Isn't it weird? I was worried that I should've gotten the other people gift cards. And now I feel guilty that I'm getting the lady security guard a gift card. 'Tis the season of gift giving anxiety!
