Obrigado!

Wednesday, 23 February 2011

There I was minding my own business, typing what feels like endless minutes when one of the young guys in my team walked in and handed me a gift of glittered, cupcakes with smarties!!! He said that he just wanted to say ‘thank you’.

I cannot tell you how deeply touched I felt. Not just because he took the time to say ‘thank you’ but because in my non stop, never shutting up talking… he actually listened and he knew I had a craving for smarties, that I loved cupcakes and that I love glitter.

It was a beautiful gesture, much appreciated and one that will always make me feel I may not be a nuclear scientist, but I am good at what I do, and it doesn’t always go unnoticed.

Obrigado Bruno muito!  Eu aprecio.

Btw, voting between a radio in the office or me….. I won! heheheheheh

  1. mmm those look yummy. So nice to know that people appreciate you. We should all take the time to tell those around us we appreciate them. It does make a huge difference.

  2. That is so sweet. I love when people really listen without you realising that they are listening and then go the extra mile for you.

    I hope you made some time to have your small cry because of the cupcakes. Please tell me about the coming storm at work tomorrow. I don’t want to be caught outside without an umbrella.

    He is such a sweet guy. Sometimes feel like just giving him a small huge and telling him that everything will be ok!

    I sooo wish that bosses would only notice that a little ‘thank you’ does so much more towards motivating people than stupid performance assessments and arguments!
