The Human Resources (HR) department took up most of my first day with boring presentations intertwined with lots of waiting. Late in the afternoon, HR walked me through the cavernous facility to my new department—the Final Assembly Line.

She was very pregnant, but moved fast. ” She said to meet her at 6 am the following morning. I liked her. Well, Murphy and his law worked. Sandy had her baby six weeks early that night.
