For a moment I was taken back to my experiences at the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I think these are some of the same people .
Tiffany, who helped us during my training class.
There is no caption I can make up, that can say it any better than the picture.
A moment of silence, while we mourn those who have foolishly switched to AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. Those poor unfortunates will soon realize their great error, but not be able to come back to us for two years.
Mary Dillon, CEO, leads us in prayer, while Steven Campbell raises his hands to the Sun.
Everybody just be calm - AT&T will never buy US Cellular.
Mary asking, "Does anyone in the audience have anything that dissolves Super Glue? It was all over our water bottles, and now our hands are stuck."
By exerting great force, and with a mighty grunt, Steven Campbell, Treasurer and CFO, manages to get his hands pulled apart.
Jeffery Childs, head of HR, got a couple of fingers loose, but couldn't quite get the rest separated.
Michael Irizzary, Engineering and Tech Officer, had no problem getting his hands apart. Leave it to the tech guy to be prepared and have some solvent and cleaner in his bag.
Alan Ferber, Operations, tells us, "I have some good news and some bad news." The good news was that he was happy to see us all. The bad news was that his hands were also stuck together.
One of our better RWC's (Wireless Retail Consultants, for you outsiders) talking about what she loves about her job, and why her customers love her. Alan's hands are still stuck together.
Everyone is laughing, because Alan Ferber had managed to get his hands apart, but has now stuck his left hand to his cheek.
Mary begins the sing along. Just kidding - there was no sing along; but the mood was such, that there could have been one.
Speaking of sing alongs, a torch singer belts one out. It was a very musical night. I believe the song was, Feelings.
An associate from Waukesha sings The Good Ship Lollipop, just the way Shirley Temple did. I don't know how she got her voice to go so high, but she really did sound just like Shirley Temple.
One of the field techs sings, The Ballad of the Green Berets.
Another tech sings Nessun Dorma, from the Opera Turandot. There was not a dry eye in the house, let me tell you.
The human face of financial services. You could not pay me enough to do their job.
Mike Irizarry on video. Judging by the look on his face, he explains a very delicate and painful subject, that might be of interest to many men.
Mary advises us that US Cellular has just bought the commercial rights, and will be renaming the Statue of Liberty, the US Cellular Statue of Wireless. Instead of a torch, it will now be holding a cell phone.
Mary Dillon makes a face at us, before we leave.
The applause were genuine, and enthusiastic. As much as I have been poking a bit of fun, this is a pretty interesting company to work for. I had no idea, when I applied, just what a unique place this is.
All good things must come to an end - but there is always next year.
