Where do I begin?
When I first talked to Manny, he was sitting in the front office waiting to interview for the L1 Support role. The first thing I noticed was his hair ((what about it tho – add a detail)). I said, “hi” and he chuckled a little bit and nervously said, “hi.”
He was still sitting there when I walked back to the office later so I asked him, “Are you interviewing today?” He quickly replied with, “Uh, yeah.”
“You’re gonna get the job,” I told him, and that was the last time I saw him for a while.
I don’t remember how much time passed between the interview and his start date, but I do remember seeing him walking around introducing himself to fellow colleagues and giving away his new hire cookies. I’m not sure how our exchanges began, but we quickly hit it off and became good friends.
Taco Bell & Arizona Green Teas have been the foundation of our friendship. With these things in common it didn’t take long before we took a trip together to the San Antonio office. Manny had never been to a Buccees before so you know we had to take him there.
As you can tell, Manny was very new to the Texas lifestyle.
Here is Manny buying a single potato 🥔 at buccees.
I’m going to miss the nonstop bickering we do every few days. I’ll miss the morning hugs that started my day, followed by the chokeholds I would put you in. You’re the big brother I never had and I really appreciate everything you’ve taught me. I know you’re going to do well in your new role and I can’t wait to see how much you grow in your career. Please keep in touch. <3
