Todd Swears. We Get Tacos.
Envision's CEO/CTO isn't what you'd call "vulgar", but, like many of us, he has been known to drop a four-letter word now and again. With a trip planned to the United Arab Emirates, where swearing is illegal, Todd wanted to prepare himself and practice not swearing prior to his trip.
To help him in his quest, he bet the staff that he could go 11 weeks and not swear more than 11 times during that span. If he wins the bet, he gets bragging rights. If he loses, he throws a Cinco de Mayo party for the staff and treats us all to a taco feast. Needless to say, the staff was really pulling for Todd to swear.
While the effort was admirable, and he almost made it to the end (he was even honorable and told us about slip-ups he had outside of the office that we never would've known about had he not been honest), but the staff got their party.
Since the 5th of May actually fell on a Saturday, and since we had other obligations on the 4th, Envision's "Cinco de Mayo" party was actually a "Tercera de Mayo" party. The change of date didn't dampen our fun, however, as we enjoyed a spread of tacos, rice, chips and salsa.. We got decked out in sombreros and mustaches and took in a screening of "The Three Amigos" while the entire staff thanked Todd for using bad words.
You can see some pictures of the fun below. Olay!
