Turning Down a Promotion

The top ten list of morale-boosting initiatives rejected by your company:

Ten We're Turning Furloughs Into Fun-Loughs!

Nine Outsourcing Bingo

Eight Secret Suck-Up

Seven Hunker Down and Party Down at New Austerity Disco Nite

Six Prozac Potluck

Five Wheel of Harassment

Four Layoff Olympics

Three Decontamination Derby (aka Office Fridge Cleanup)

Two Let's Go Postal!

One Gruel and Hardtack Cook-Off


  1. I've worked for companies that didn't reject those initiatives.

  2. I myself have experienced the joys of the unpaid Fun-lough. The company's finances still wound up with more leaks than the Iraqi Navy.
