This post may seem to have little to do with our trip to Europe but it actually has everything to do with it. You see when William and I got married six years ago we shared a common dream – to travel, to explore and to adventure. There was just one small problem. William was retired but I was “still working”. Today marks the beginning of my retirement and the ability for William and I to begin our travels.
In the fall of 1977 at the age of 23 I accepted a position with Xerox. My intentions were to work 2 years and then become a stay-at-home Mom. This was no ordinary job though as I was the first female Xerox electronics technician in the Charlotte area. Every day I faced a new customer, a new set of problems and a new challenge. Repairing the Xerox equipment was like solving a puzzle to me and I Loved it. I would go in and do my repair magic then chat with the customer and make sure everything was running right before I would leave. I soon figured out it wasn’t the “puzzle” in repairing the equipment but the time I spent with the customer that I really loved. And this is what kept me at Xerox all these 39 years.
Xerox has changed a lot over the years and in truth so have I. It’s been real Xerox but I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed the ride.
Over and out Xerox!
