View Full Version : One of the best perks

I've been in business for a little while now and have had some pretty nice gifts given to me by customers... Some of the gifts have included concert tickets, restaurant gift certificates, clothing, and other random things. I'll occasionally receive a 'thank you' card for helping with something I view as an everyday thing. Just now I had a customer send me cookies as a "thank you". I really appreciate my customers, but it's really nice to know they appreciate me sometimes, too.

They sent you cookies? Holy hell that rocks. I can't wait for the day that a customer gives me cookies. So far I've gotten a couple of computers, some memory, and a PB&J sandwich. Haha.

So far I've gotten beer, cookies, a nice CRT monitor, and a sweet wireless laser mouse. Pretty good haul, for only a few months work.

I have a monthly maintenance contract with one of my clients, and every time I go to her house, she always feeds me dinner. :D

I've also received computers, monitors, ect. :)

Damn, I hope I can get gifts like that once I'm up and running.

I guess I never really thought about it but, I have received a lot of stuff through the years.

Computers, Servers, Monitors, Routers, Switches, Printers, Desks, File Cabinets, Lunch, Dinner, Haircuts, SWAG, Wow I can't remember it all. The perks have been really nice.:)

Working for yourself is great even though the boss gets on my nerves sometimes.

I'm still looking forward to the cookies though! :)

I just do some computer work on the side. I have gotten printers, computers, computer parts, beer, and my favorite, Willingham's Rubn BBQ Marinaide! I get that every time I do any work for one of my friends and one buisiness.

Willinghams. That my friends, is how steak is done! Good on burgers too. :D

I get my truck fixed for the cost of parts at one place that I work on their computers. Got a set of tires mounted and balanced for free from them a while back! Barter works well if you work on the side.

But homemade cookies. Now that would be nice.
