Word on RealStreet!
Employee Newsletter Vol. IV Issue VIII
April 2016

It's officially Spring! We are seeing warmer weather (well, most of the time), bright, sunny days, and beautiful flowers blooming on the trees and flowers.  The bees are buzzing , the robins are rockin' and rabbits can be found hopping in yards and fields everywhere! Do you think it's all the 4 leaf clovers they eat that makes their feet so lucky? 
Best wishes from everyone at RealStreet!

April Fools Day!

Happy  April Fools' Day ! Have you fallen prey to any silliness? Keep your eyes peeled for workplace shenanigans! Pranksters can be found hiding in the break room, lurking behind cubical walls, sitting innocently at their desk pretending to work and just about everywhere else.

Feeling foolish? The Muse compiled a number of articles with a variety of funny ideas. Check them out for a good laugh, but think twice before pranking your co-workers - they might retaliate in like-form! Not to mention, it could wind up leading to HR and legal consequences  that are far less amusing for all parties involved.
H ave a Happy April Fools' Day! ;-)

Wise Thoughts

" Spring is nature's way of saying,  'Let's party!'"
~ Robin Williams

Everyday Driver Tips

  • Clean & adjust mirrors. 
  • Alert others of intentions by tapping the horn twice just prior to backing up.
  • Roll your window down and listen for warnings - if you do, stop immediately. 
  • Minimize back up distance.
  • Back at a creep/idle speed, covering the brake.
  • Back to the driver's side of the vehicle.
  • Continually scan the mirrors.
  • If unsure of clearance, park, safely exit & check. 
  • If using a spotter, ensure they can be seen - stopping if out of view, roll down the window to hear warnings & use agreed upon hand signals.
