End of an Era

Jason doesn't like change. He has worn the same brand of deodorant for as long as I've known him. Old Spice Fresh (I made the mistake of buying the "sport" version and it didn't go over too well). He has also used the same toothpaste for as long as I've known him. Colgate Fresh, gel not paste. He refuses to update his Iphone to the newest version. He has had only 2 different hair styles in the 19 years I've known him. He has been given multiple new computer bags for work, but has stuck with this original one for the past 10 years. Ten years is a long time. It's a decade. It's 1/4 of his life. And that's how long he has been at PWC, but it's time for a change. This new company has been a client of his for years and they have been recruiting him for quite some time, but this time things just fell into place and it felt like the right time to make the switch. He had a hard time adjusting to work in NZ so I was a little nervous how he would do with this change, but so far it has been such a good experience. It helps that he knows so many of the people there already and the work/life balance is so much better. Plus the commute is about half the time. He just seems so much less stressed and happy, it's good to see him like that. PWC has been such a great company to work with, they've treated us well over the past 10 years but we're looking forward to opportunities that lie ahead. Thank you, Jason for always working so hard for our family, we're proud of you!

(last day at PWC)

(First day at his new job. He's not too thrilled about wearing ties every day.)

Congratulations! I hope it goes well! Sounds like a loyal, content and low maintenance type of guy to have around! (Landfills would be less filled if everyone else were as content as he, to keep using their good old stuff, eh?). Meanwhile, the question remains: is that a new computer bag in his hand on the first day in the new job?!
