Only in Texas…
So, after a good run, our CEO officially stepped down today. We had a big employee meeting/farewell party for him with cake and speeches and whathaveyou. I swear I saw the man tearing up while making goodbyes (even though he’ll still be around, I’m sure). So, after all of the to-do and pontificating and polite laughter, our CFO and Chief Counsel bring out a farewell gift for our CEO – and you can tell they’re very proud of themselves. It’s a long, black case. It’s…no…it couldn’t be. Yes, it is.
It was much fancier-looking than this, but I’m lazy today.
That’s right – a slick, black breakdown shotgun case complete with a very expensive-looking 12-gauge inside with gorgeous brushed-nickel filigreeing and a walnut stock. Just what every CEO needs.
Well, if you’re a CEO in Texas, that is. God bless this strange little state of ours.
