Deborah Sweeney
My Corporation
CEO

Allow me to introduce one of our Social Media Interns: Kelsey Goeres, to write this month’s piece on MyCorporation’s office quirks.

The clock strikes 8:30 and the ears in the office perk up to listen for the swoosh of the door, eyes dart back and forth in desperate search of a big brown bag, and noses violently sniff straining to smell any hint of the highly anticipated bagels that are soon to be delivered. It’s that day; Bagel Friday. Every Friday at MyCorporation the Director of Operations, Dana, brings in freshly made bagels accompanied with various gourmet whipped cream cheeses.

As soon as Dana enters those front glass MyCorp doors the bagel politics begins. Of course, the swarming doesn’t instantly begin, no. Dana slowly creates a nice display and the employees pretend not to notice for a minute or two. There are a few bold ones that dash for the break room after little delay and then there are those who try and play off like they haven’t been dreaming of those bagels and tantalizing cream cheeses all week (you haven’t lived until you’ve tried whipped bacon flavored cream cheese)—everyone has his/her method. How they go about retrieving seconds is for another post.
