Jon Snow started working with his mom in February 2021, and it’s been his favorite thing ever since. He enjoys making friends with all her colleagues and exploring the office – earlier this year he also started an office scavenger hunt.
Jon’s mother, Heidy Lopez, works for a moving company in Illinois. People always throw away a lot of stuff when they move, and a lot of it ends up in company warehouses temporarily. Earlier this year, Jon discovered the warehouse while exploring, and decided the best way to thank his mom for all her fantastic office trips was to bring her treasure.
Now, every time Jon was in the office, he would go to the warehouse, go through all the treasures, and drag whatever he chose back to his mom’s desk. He brought her all kinds of treasures, big and small, cute and quirky, and everyone was waiting to see what he would bring her next.
“He is incredibly proud of his treasures,” Lopez told The Dodo. “He enjoys every [single] thing he brings. It’s so cute. I’d have to say the strangest and most hilarious was an orthopedic boot. It was funny and gross at the same time.”
Jon’s treasure is never straightforward. He brought mom a hose, a rocking horse, a step stool, a cooler, a basketball hoop, and more. His mum used to hear a lot of banging and thought Jon had found something big and dragged it to her. That’s a sled. Jon’s Treasure is never boring.
Another employee, Frank, is always nearby to supervise when Jon searches for treasure in the warehouse. He often helped Jon and followed him back to his mother’s desk. He’s also usually the one who has to haul Jon’s treasures back to the warehouse after they’ve been shown to his mom and the rest of the office.
“Everyone here loves watching Jon smash his treasure,” Lopez said. “This is everyone’s highlight of the day!”
Jon really enjoyed the trip to his mom’s office, he just wanted to make sure she knew about it. Some dogs will do this by giving their mom lots of kisses. Jon, does this by bringing her things that people throw away. Each has its own.
