15 Kids & Aliens


Today was my very first company wide meeting. At the end of every month (or right at the beginning of the month as this one was) everyone from Connect gets on a conference call with our CEO Neil. Neil is in California and we have offices in Washington, Phoenix, and even one in Munich Germany, and then of course the Provo office.

On this phone call each of the promotions that have happened in the last month are announced and also any new hires. There were a couple of interns that were new but I was the only brand new FULL TIME employee introduced. Ben Jolley, who is my supervisor, introduced me on the call. He said some nice things and complimented me on my successes thus far. Everything was just hunky dory and I was thinking oh that was a nice introduction...and then Ben proceeded to tell everyone that I came from of family of 15 kids and that I believed Aliens will visit the earth.

Needless to say I was a little surprised by that. Everyone in the room turned and looked at me. Awkward! Ben started laughing and that signaled to everyone else that it was a JOKE and I clarified that I only have four kids in my family... not 15 and that I am still up in the air on the Alien thing...
