A slap in the face

So you might remember me mentioning that my company is making us all take a week off without pay. Seems the company is hurting for money and this measure is supposed to save the world, as far as they are concerned. Well look what just got delivered yesterday.

New LEATHER chairs for one of the conference rooms we think. Uhm glad to see i need a week without pay and you're buying new leather chairs. and not just one box.

But 4 boxes of leather chairs. And do you even have the common courteous to bring them in the back door. You just set them here in side the lobby door for all to see. THANKS! Wow Wait what does that say.....oh fantastic!

Thank god it's on all seating surfaces. Supple? Hey maybe they thought they would help out the porn industry during this hard time. Because I don't know another time people use the word "Supple" to describe a product. We waited all day to see who would claim the chairs, when i left at 3 p.m. they were still sitting inside the door like the forgotten child at the gas station. The lady who does all the ordering was out yesterday, by out i mean on her furlough. Thank heavens for supple leather chairs.

Oh. My. God. You have got to be kidding me! I have to say, I'd be sitting down to pen a letter to the powers that be... a respectful letter, mind you, but one asking how they can manage to buy leather chairs for a conference room when you're being forced to take a week without pay. In fact, if you want, I'LL write the letter FOR you! I'm just THAT aggravated!
