So I know I just did a post about the amazing benefits that my job provides....the free ice cream bribe. Well, I now have a new story that TOTALLY blows that one out of the water. This is not about a client trying to bribe me, oh no. This is about my company giving out perks. That's right people, I now work for a company that so values it's employees that there are now perks just for working for them!

Okay, I know lots of jobs have perks. I am sure mine even does, but I am just numb to them. I am driving a company car even though my job requires very little travel. That is a pretty good perk, but it just worked out that way. We had an extra company car, so they let me take it the two miles back and forth from my house while we continue the longest car hunt in history. There are other perks out there I am sure...Lipton Diet Green Tea in the fridge does come to mind...

Anyway, the BIG perk. I am really not sure you are ready for company just bought two townhouses in Florida that are one block from the beach. Here's the thing, we get to use one whenever we want...for FREE! Just as a thanks for working so hard. Isn't that the most amazing thing you have ever heard? Okay, maybe lots of companies do this, but I sure as hell have never worked for them! The townhouses are each two bedroom...with a private pool!! They had pictures of them and everything and they are totally adorable. Did I mention we can use them for free? And that they are in Florida? We just have to sign up and get ourselves down there. Instant vacation. I am just totally floored. I was about two seconds from putting our name on the list for the very first week, but then Nick reminded me that we are going to DC in October for our anniversary and then to Cleveland in November for a wedding...right. We also have a family vacation planned for next summer, so I am not sure when we will be able to use it, but trust you me, I will find a time. There is no way I am letting this amazing little perk get away from me! How cool is this?


  1. That is amazing!! I have to say that my job does NOT provide us with a FREE condo! We do get the summer off but no condo. Summer condo...maybe we should hook up!! :)

  2. I can't believe it. I am enriching young minds every, single, frackin' day and do I get a free condo in Florida? I do not. What is wrong with the world?
