Kevin Ford, who works as a cook/cashier at the Las Vegas airport, told us how his employer marked his anniversary. Kevin doesn't want people to think he's ungrateful, he just found the reward a little lackluster.


He told us that the company from which Burger King hires sent him something that felt like something they had in their office.
