1 year – Watch out! We know you very well! 2 years – It’s about time you know us pal! 3 years – Finally we understand each other well! Welcome aboard! 4 years – Congratulations! We survived each other for one full year! 5 years – A bigger note here! Got something for you! Smile! If you think, you made us feel ‘We got to wait 5 years to do something good for you! We wished it could have been earlier’. Otherwise… 6 years – Didn’t we send a note to you last year? Still expect a note every year?
Please do not read between the lines! Our question will never be ‘Are you still here?’ 7 years – Are you still here? 8 years – Well! Got something for you again! It’s boring, these messages! 9 years – Hold on now! You are almost there! 10 years – You better believe it! Let’s re-phrase! We better believe it! We are the company now! 11,12,13,14,15… – Watch out pal! Most of them know us very well!
