    I finish my current job today at 12:30 (start my new job on Monday), and today we had a leaving presentation for me. A large number of people showed up, which was really nice, and I was given a card and present. The card seems to have been signed by nearly 100 people (they needed an extra sheet to fit everyone on), and I opened the present to find a brand new Sony PSP! That's about a good a present as I could have wished for. Now I just need to go and buy some games for it! :D

    Nice :) We just bought an XBox 360 for one of the guys leaving here today.. seemed sensible to buy him something he'd actually use.

    Good going OP, it's nice to see some appreciation isn't it? :cool:

    On my 18th birthday (long time ago) the company I was working for at the time chipped together and bought me a new Hohner Les Paul copy. It's a shame it wasn't a Gibson, but it was a lovely gesture nonetheless and the axe turned out to be one of the best LP copies i've ever come across (I still have it, and I still love it).

    Nice one Davey :cool:

    When I left the Co-op many years ago, I had the distinction of having the largest collection ever at the time - £76 which was quite a lot in 1987 (more than a weeks wages). It's nice to be popular :)
