I’ve Been Hooked

As I mentioned here 2014 will be the year of bloggers, for bloggers. Influenced by, and dedicated to The Hook at You’ve Been Hooked, please enjoy the following.

The Hook spends an abundance of time letting us in the secret world of luggage handling, or, if you will, Bell Hopping. I’m very pleased to see that he is well and back at work these days. My reader was very lonely without him. Where else can you read about snobby people, hookers, comic books and Doctor Who…all in the same place? There isn’t one. He’s also written a book, The Bellman Chronicles. I’m sorry to say that I haven’t read it, yet. I’m certain I will some day, and equally certain it will be terrific.

Anyways, back to the…

The Hook  spends most of his time talking about work. I enjoy this, mainly because I think he enjoys his job. For the first time in a while I’m able to say the same thing.

I like what I do and who I do it for. This is probably because I just so happen to be noticeably good at what I do. I’m encouraged through “atta-boys” and other such accolades. This is far from the most money I’ve made at a job, but that doesn’t matter anymore. I enjoy this one. I work hard, it shows and I’m awarded for it. Simple. This also seems to be a type of company that appreciates their employees. A few months ago three mini-iPads were handed out to three very deserving employees. This past month something similar happened. One man was given a very nice fishing pole (rod and reel), a nice lady was given a watch, and a work buddy of mine received an iPad. Also, three members of the team, who have been with the company 20+ years, each, all received new watches, described as “007 style” watches. They’ve hooked me in, and I plan on staying for as long as they’ll have me.

It’s very cool to see others get recognized for their hard work. It’s even better to be able to call home with good news about work each week.

Do yo enjoy your job?

  1. You’re a good man, Brother Jon, and not just because you recognize my “greatness”. Thank you for this great honor. I promise to be around more often in the future – when I’m not slugging luggage and slinging verse, that is.

    1. Thanks Hook, you are as well. No worries, I know all about how busy life can get. Right now I’m struggling to get one post out a week. What I didn’t mention above is, though I like my new job it does have it’s drawbacks. In fact, I’m heading into work today. I will have yet another 50+ hour week. But that’s okay.

  2. The Hook was one of the first blogs I started following. I love him and I’m so happy that he is healed and back at work.

    I love, love, love my job. It is one that no one wants. I used to do it a few years back and it was reorged…as I said, no one else wanted it, so it came back to me…glad you also like your job. :0)

  3. I don’t have a job. The joys of being a Religious – I get a vocation instead. 🙂

    So the main thing I do every day is pray, and then some reading, and then some other stuff. It’s pretty cool. 😀
