Free breakfast coupons. They pass them out to the whole company. Easier to do it when they are all together.

We had a manditory Meeting last Friday at 9:30, everyone thought the same thing

"We find it's always better to fire people on a Friday. Studies have statistically shown that there's less chance of an incident if you do it at the end of the week."
-Office Space

Turns out it was a state of the company meeting, letting us know the rumors of us going out of business are not true haha.

today is not Christmas eve


My guess is that they are going to thank their employees, jelly of the month club bonus (if there is one), then say something may happen in March/april.

X2, My friend works for Atlas Copco and he was worried about the same type of meeting last Friday, turns out it was as Gr8archer said, just a state of the company meeting.

But good luck either way.

agreed on not firing. They would pull a Chrysler and call you at home the night before Thanksgiving when all your family is in town to tell you not to bother to come in on Friday.

I just spoke to Chad.
They escorted him out of the building.

They claim it is a no-no to have sex on the boss' desk with the Latina cleaning lady.

It's surely for a bonus.

Of course we should break down the word bonus.

First we have Bon, which in the context of the word is pronounced Bone

Then we have us which in the context of the word is pronounced Ass

When you combine the two you have Bone Ass, yes your getting a bone in your ass, you are fired.

Merry Christmas.
