Mr. Mausi celebrates his 45th birthday today. He's also celebrating being with the same company for the past 19 years. Isn't that just so very German of him?
One fine day long, long ago a little boy, not even five years old yet, said to himself, "Hmm, I really dig wearing this shirt and tie. I like it so much, in fact, that when I grow up I want to be head of my department so I can wear a shirt and tie to work every single day. Yeah, that's it!"
"So be it!", proclaimed the good fairy waving her magic wand, "When the time is right, you shall become a department head."
I think she meant a department head with a necktie fetish.
be careful what you wish for
Happy Birthday, Mr. M! You haven't changed a bit.
