Twenty years ago I hired on with my present company digging ditches and now I am thier Director of Capital Projects and have one person that has seniority on me. It has really been quite the ride, I'm glad that I stuck it out thru the rough times.
I can remember the day I started like it was yesterday, except now I'm about 75lbs heavier and a lot grayer.
I guess that the days of Gold Watches are gone but I am happy with a Plaque and a bonus check! :cool:

Congrats Marty!! That is rare in these times. Not many people are loyal to one company for that long and far fewer companies are that loyal to their employees.

Congrats Marty, It's nice to see recognition given these days where people are seen as throwaways.
I have been with my company for 14 years and hope to be around many more.

Congrats Marty, nice to hear that you received a bonus check as well. The plaque is nice and all but you can't buy chrome with a plaque.

Congrats Marty! I myself am knocking on 11 years with the same agency. Anymore its a rare thing to stick it out with the same job. I think I heard a stat one time that the average person has at least 7 jobs in their lifetime. If I stick this out I will have close to 45 years before I hang my hat on retirement day. I guess you might be close to that also.

Wow I actually thought that the number would be higher than 7 this is my third here. Yes I have about another twenty to go until I start looking at Central America for retiement!!

Congrat's... considering that is almost unheard of these days.
Fortunatley we have quite a few of 10 -15 year people at our company.

Congrats Marty !!! Knowing you, they are lucky to have you. Hope your next stretch is even better for ya.
Thanks Ed, I hope that I get another great twenty here!
