A million (or 51) reasons we’re thankful for our office manager, Kevin Cain.

It’s Thanksgiving week. Meaning, it’s time to say what we’re thankful for. We asked around the office, and one thing kept rising to the top: Kevin Cain. It seemed overdue that we dedicate an entire post on why we’re thankful for The Cain Brain, aka the Cain-ger Zone, aka Raising Cain’s, aka the King of Cains, aka Michael Cain, aka the Superior Police Department Cain-ine Unit.

Here it goes. We’re thankful for Kevin because:
