Great job Wilhelmina (@WillieSun)!!

Yesterday at work, we had our Christmas party. We had a Yankee Swap at the party, with a $15 limit. The gift I bought for the swap…You guessed it! A Rubik’s Cube!! Everybody has different rules. In this case the way the swap worked was after a person opened a gift, then the next person would grab another gift, and before they open it, decide whether they wanted to steal somebody else’s gift, or keep the one they have, then open it.

My supervisor got a Blu-Ray of The Muppet Christmas Carol. A few people later, somebody stole the movie, and gave him another gift, which was the Rubik’s Cube. He said that part of the interview process was going to include having a prospective employee try to solve the Cube. A few people later, somebody stole the Rubik’s Cube from him! I was so happy that there was interest in the Rubik’s Cube.

I actually had a really good number, and was next to last. As tempted as I was to take the Rubik’s Cube, I decided to keep the gift I picked, which looked like a gift card. It ended up being a $15 iTunes gift card. Score!! I’ll make sure I’ll use it towards ’80s related music!

Have any of you recently given or received a cool ’80s gift from somebody at work?

Here are some old Rubik’s Cube commercials that will bring back memories:
