It started out as the best day of the summer, Marmot Day, 2018. Covenant Eyes employees and their families had settled in for a day of lunch, laughter, and games. But at 12:30 p.m. the laughter promptly stopped. CE Marmot, AKA “ĆĖ Marmót” (he is a 70-year-old marmot from France), an executive at Covenant Eyes, drove his car into his hole, thus, putting an end to summer! Everyone was flabbergasted, as you can see in the video below.
Mr. Marmot vanished immediately after the incident. He caught a flight to Paris, and there were consequences. When he returned home, he was let go. As a result of his shenanigans the sun refused to shine, and everyone’s tomatoes would not ripen. Summer was over, and everyone thought it was the end of Marmot Day forever.
But alas, we have some good news: Last Christmas, ĆĖ Marmót begged for forgiveness and asked to be restored as an executive. The Executive Leadership Team was merciful and allowed him to come back. He is still on probation, and he works at a reduced salary. Now it looks like Marmot Day will continue, at least into the summer of 2019.
