Quitting time

One of my employees at The Corporation informed me a few weeks ago that she is taking a job closer to home so that she can reduce her 1.5-hour commute and be closer to her two young children. Her last day is Friday and I was hoping to assemble a gift of useful and fun items. Like a fake cable car or San Francisco magnets (since she no longer has a reason to come into the city) or Nicorette gum (since we all give her grief about her smoking habit).

Well, I looked into a pack of Nicorette today and, holy bejeezus is that stuff expensive! If there was ever a reason to not smoke in the first place, it's the expense you would incur should you decide ever to stop!

I think I'll get her some Ghiradelli chocolate instead.
