COVID-19 Small Business Journal: When Things Break
For one of our first Christmases we had as a staff, Jon and I got everyone matching name cups. Shortly after that, Brendan joined our team, and he was the only one without his own cup. He wasn’t terribly bothered by this, but then one day at Value Village I found this beautiful almost Brendan mug, and for a short while (until we hired our next person) our cup situation was at peace. Basically everyone but Brendan used the mug, but the point was everyone had a mug.
Mugs have since come and gone, along with staff, and now the Brenda mug is also gone. A disaster involving a small child, a toy car, and heartbreak.
