Wanna get some time off from work? Here’s a creative method that one Google employee tried. His daughter sent a really cute letter in crayon to his employer, which happens to be Google, asking them to give him a day off for his birthday.
The letter reads:
Dear Google Worker,
Can you please make sure when daddy goes to work, he gets one day off. Like he can get a day off on Wednesday. Because daddy only gets a day off on Saturday.
P.S. It is Daddy’s BIRTHDAY
P.P.S. It is summer, you know
Now see Google’s response in the next page.
In a letter back to Katie, her dad’s boss, Senior Design Manager Daniel Shiplacoff, not only acknowledged Katie’s dad on his hard work, but also gave him an extra week off.
“Thank you for your thoughtful note and request,” Google responded. “Your father has been hard at work designing many beautiful and delightful things for Google and millions of people across the globe.”
Perhaps it was the crayon, or perhaps since it is summer, after all. It’s nice to see that the internet giant not only makes awesome technology, but also takes time out to make a little girl’s day. Share this wonderful story with others below.
