don’t show THIS to the investors
September 2, 2008
Okay, so I really do like my job, and this is a very pleasant place to work, generally.
But seriously. The owner is a multi-millionaire. The principle officers come from Fortune 5o0 companies, and as far as I know, also use the facilities here.
And I understand a commitment to fiscal responsibility, a desire to show good, clean books to potential investors. Sure.
But it’s not just the bathroom anymore. I don’t use the break room much, except to get Diet Coke out of the vending machine. This morning I needed to put something in the fridge, which I usually don’t do.
I have never seen anything like this. EVER. And I’ve spent considerable time living in third world countries, in towns with no paved roads, in houses with no refrigeration at all. So how do you explain THIS:
I’ve also spent time at other, similarly sized companies (closing in on 10 million in annual sales, 30 plus employees). I was in charge at my previous place of employment, and I can tell you, while we didn’t win any awards, we never had to carry loaded firearms when we opened the fridge, in case raccoons or BEARS were living there.
One more time:
That’s the break room refrigerator where I work.
I give. I will now boil my own head. And leave it in the fridge, for Buffalo Bill to find.
