I have learned a lot in the past 3 years that I have been working with my company. Surprisingly, many of the things that I have learned do not have anything to do (directly) with my line of work. Of course, in that respect, I have learned more than I thought I could ever learn. But there are other perks - like discovering the existence of brand names. Not that I would be able to afford some of the things that my coworkers talk about, but it is still refreshing to hear about these things from time to time. Before, names such as Oscar de la Renta wouldn't have evoked any reaction at all. Now, I at least have an idea. Next time that I find myself in a situation where people have conversations about such topics, I wouldn't be at a loss.
