pleasant surprise!

I came to my cubicle this morning and found a huge box of raisin bran on my desk. It had a note on it. Amused and curious, I walked over to it and read the note. It said:
Hi Prashant,
Thanks for everything!

And instantly a smile lit up my face! Out of all the good and bad things that have happened to me during my internship, this is one that I never expected and one that I will never forget.
The background behind the gift and the note goes something like this. Last week, I came back to work after my NY trip and found Dao quite perplexed. She had made some mistakes during transaction updates and that had screwed up lots of inventory records. She came to me, and I fixed it over 2 days. After that she was all praises for me and that explains the gift and note.
It feels pretty good to know that people at your workplace genuinely appreciate the work that you do. It's actually one notch above 'being important' or 'doing important stuff' at ur internship. It gives you a nice feeling of being an integral part of the company and a part of the family of employees. It feels nice :)
And guess what this means? My mood's great today! Which probably means that the time I spend at office today is gonna be more productive than usual!
Hmm.. this is a nice example of how a good company culture can go a long way towards increasing productivity of the company.
