Head office staff enjoyed a very delicious Christmas dinner at La Piazza Allegra last night and even were more happy when Santa Claus showed up with some gifts for the staff as well. Everyone was especially happy to hear that they were on Santa’s “NICE” list year as well!
Tonight we are having our annual Christmas party for our head office staff and we will be closing a few hours earlier than usual at 5 p.m., EST.
Remember this old saying!?, or the ole slogan “Neither rain, nor snow, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”, the quote, inscribed on a post office in New York City, refers to couriers in the ancient Persian Empire.Well with the weather we have been having lately, and our Canada Post postal strike recently being settled ( hangover effects still present) I thought I would post on some interesting things we are noticing. It was said there was over 500 trucks with mail in them and that it would take till next year to clear up the back log. This is a fair statement and to be expected, no complaints here, it will take time to get the volume sorted out. Remember as well the Christmas letters as well and all parcels and you can just imagine the backlog of mail. This week we have received letters postmarked from 1-8 weeks, cheques written in October, and even priority post items sent 2 months ago are now just showing up. So, with that being said, please remember that just because you sent it does not mean we have it yet!
Okay who started to sing the song when they saw the title of this post!?…. I did some research tonight on this song “It’s beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.” and of course it has a background different than what I thought! Santas Elves are starting to get busy at head office, decorations are starting to go up inside and outside even! I took a picture of our front steps and was shocked at how tatty they are starting to look 🙁 Well maybe Santa Claus can bring us a new front porch this year, we have all been extra good, and I am sure we are on his “nice” list.
Another trade show is in the books, the 38th annual Litigation Conference hosted by The County of Carleton Law Association was a great time for all, the weather threw us all a curve ball but once inside it was warm and dry. Always a pleasure to support and exhibit!
