Default Been with my company ten years now.....need some advice...

They want to give me a gift!!! Happy anniversary I guess.

So, of the 7 things (two clocks, earings, and a necklace have been ruled out) I have it narrowed down to these:

Binoculars (10x50) by a reputable company I can't remember at the moment.
Leatherman (genuine leatherman!). 14 tool style. Stainless with leather pouch.
Swiss Army Peak Watch. Titanium frame, black leather band. Nice looking watch.

So what do you think? What is worth my 10 years of toil and pain????

Guess they do not want to give out guns cuz they know the way they treat people that they will go postal. I gave out large gifts for anyone that could stomach me for a year So far it has only been one Had to let the good ones go due to HUGE increases in my workmans comp. and other taxes.

I had my ten years in last month, nobody even recognised it. Consider yourself lucky and appreciated, even if it doesnt seem like it.

I'd go for the watch too.

I got a desk clock at 5. The battery wore out in a year, so I set it to 5:05. That way its always time to go home.

Gezzzzz..........

The company I worked 10 years for (employed 45 people) gave me an all expense paid trip for two to Tahiti at Club Med.......guess I'm pretty lucky. Every person that worked over 10 years go a free trip somewhere. It was actually an incentive to stay for some.
