Coworkers Having Your Back Brightens Everyone’s Day

, , , , | Working | October 19, 2020

What starts as a quick trip to the ER ends up being a week-long hospital stay. I call work early in the week to let them know. During my visit, I end up needing surgery. I’m frustrated with everything, on top of being stressed, tired, and in pain. When I get back to my room, a HUGE vase of gorgeous flowers is sitting on my table.

Nurse: “Oh, it looks like someone’s got an admirer!”

I open the card next to it. It is covered with messages from my coworkers, including my district manager! I call my store to thank them.

Me: “Hey, I just got the card and flowers—”

Manager: “Oh, good! We’ve missed your smiling face here and wanted to give you something just as bright to help you there!”

It definitely did help!
