We are family!July 22, 2013, 10:58:45 AM Posted by I B D on July 22, 2013, 10:58:45 AM in We are family! | 16 CommentsOne of the many things I love about SMF Team and its been there through the years, may have been forgotten by a few is we are one big family, and of course our family members who have moved away are now friends. Of course we have had fights with our friends and family but we love each other. The issues between myself and one friend are well known, however no matter how much we dislike each other, if something was to happen then I would be upset (and i'm sure they would be if something happened to me). No family is perfect, no friendship is perfect, no-one is perfect
but in thinking about our friends and family here at SMF, I realized a few things, we all want the same thing albeit in different ways, and we have seen almost anything a family would see, we have seen:
Members of our family and friends move to senior positions in big name companies.
A death in our circle, one that affected a few of us who knew them offline.
Romantic relationships between team members.
The birth of a child from various family and friends.
Fights between family members and friends.
Accidents and emergencies.
And the list continues.
We haven't seen 2 team members marry each other yet, but we are hoping it will happen someday, and in research I did find out that its been close to happening!
Now no matter what we have seen, or what we are going to see, we look forward to seeing our family grow and face the challenges ahead, we hope that you will stay with us and watch our baby grow, there have been many positive changes on SMF recently, and no matter what happens I am proud to be able to say, I am part of this family. And I look forward to welcoming all the future members of the family who don't realize that they belong with us!

Antes on July 22, 2013, 03:06:34 PM saidI'm hungry and someone needs to feed me!
Chalky on July 22, 2013, 03:09:13 PM saidAh what a lovely post Runic! Can you lend me some money? I'm a bit skint this month
I B D on July 22, 2013, 03:32:46 PM saidyour the one with the job
Chalky on July 22, 2013, 03:46:26 PM saidExactly. We working people spend all our money on drugs just to make our jobs bearable... namely caffeine and alcohol
Burke ♞ Knight on July 22, 2013, 07:48:17 PM saidHey Runic,
Don't forget the unofficial members of that family.
The ones that help out, who are not really considered part of SMF team.
They are the ones that really need to be told "great job" to now and then.
By the way, when is the family reunion?

Ask Chalky to make you some food.
Chalky on July 23, 2013, 02:07:34 PM saidWhy don't you make him some food - after you remove your frying pan from where I've just shoved it
