2 amusing things by Alison Green on August 8, 2012 I have been watching this video over and over and laughing hysterically at it. Please watch it immediately. Also: In the process of looking for an old post on something else, I came across the one below. I am reprinting it here in its entirety because it is so wonderful. * * * angry boss writing angry memos OCTOBER 4, 2010 A reader sent me a link to these fantastic memos from a Tiger Oil CEO in the 1970s. They are awesome. Some excerpts: “I swear, but since I am the owner of this company, that is my privilege, and this privilege is not to be interpreted as the same for any employee. That differentiates me from you, and I want to keep it that way.” “I have noticed the rugs throughout this office are very dirty from people spilling things on them. I will have them cleaned (which will cost me $1,000.00); and, in future, if people cannot carry their coffee without spilling it on my rugs, we will do away with the coffee pots entirely just as we did away with the food.” “Do not speak to me when you see me. If I want to to speak to you, I will do so. I want to save my throat. I don’t want to ruin it by saying hello to all of you sons-of-bitches.” And there’s plenty more. Read them immediately, preferably from somewhere where you can gasp loudly and laugh without disturbing anyone. (I always suspect things that are slightly too awesome of being a hoax, but as far as anyone seems to be able to tell, these are real.)
