Another unusual way we celebrate office birthdays...
Every month we have birthday cookies to honor our comrades in the office, and many times, we do something a little extra special to celebrate, usually odd things, like hand-drawn birthday cards or wearing colored shirts that match a birthday boy or girl's last name.
This week some humans in the office commemorated Florent's "Annual Creation Date Checkpoint" (the robot equivalent of a "birthday") by creating Play-Doh sculptures to decorate his cubicle, err, docking station.
You see, Florent is believed to be a humanoid robot built in France 25 years ago. Many speculate that engineers designed him to be a Microsoft Excel Terminator, but like Skynet, he became self-aware and downloaded other programs that make him a lethal adversary in competitive activities such as: Pool, Golf, Ping Pong and Swing Dancing.
However, any similarities to the Terminator end there as Florent is a very affable and lovable French robot. Everyone in the office feels fortunate to have him crunching numbers on our team, and moreover, happy to count him as a friend.
Happy Annual Creation Date Checkpoint, Florent!
