Google Gear: Farewell Charlie

My wife teases me frequently about the amount of Google clothing I’ve accumulated. I defend these shirts, hats, fleeces, etc with the plea “But each has a story.”

Story 1: “Charlie Has Left the Building
This shirt was from spring 2005 when original Google chef Charlie Ayers departed to start his own restaurant. Charlie was an awesome spirit who ran our cafe with care and some quirks. Some unofficial rules we lived by:
1. Don’t take two desserts – Charlie will find you.
2. Don’t waste food – Charlie is watching.
3. If you don’t bus your tray Charlie will take them away from all of us.
