It’s a Friday morning and the first thing I thought about when I woke up was doughnuts. It’s become a tradition to get doughnuts for the staff on Fridays. Everyone has worked so hard and there’s nothing quite like some fried dough and icing to express our thanks.
It makes me sad to think about the millions of people in corporate America who are never acknowledged for their work. People waking up early, dreading the drive into work, punching in for a full day at a job they don’t enjoy, counting down the hours until 5pm when their “real life” can begin.
I wonder what would happen if every office had doughnuts on Friday mornings. Maybe even for one day, the unappreciated people in corporate America would drive into work with a little dose of hope and gratitude. If not for their job, at least for a doughnut.
