I kind of blamed that Human Resource person in my heart. The company had bent a lot of rules in my favor over the years and I thought she might have resented it. Although I might have missed out on the stock situation, I felt my hire date could have been moved up so I didn't lose the years of service. It might have been impossible but her attitude rubbed me wrong. On what was her 15th year of service (my 16th if I hadn't left) the company threw a little party and awarded her with a 15 year pin. Once again she taunted me with "don't you wish..." as I knew she probably would but I was ready. I had put on my 5 year pin and next it to my 10 year pin..pointed it out to her and said with a smile "broken service".
