Keeping track of your work family
So I was in the office last week and one of my co-workers greeted me with a set of rice cakes/candy. It was as a celebration of his baby’s 1st birthday. The little traditions in the office are quite interesting. Every time you come back from a business trip (or vacation, Koreans seem to think of a business trip a lot like a vacation apparently) you are supposed to bring treats. Since so much of your life revolves around work, it is an interesting viewpoint of bringing your “family” presents.
