True Life: Office Space

Email received today regarding an important meeting tomorrow:

In order for the office to look as busy as we are, we are in need of a few more live bodies to be bustling around and looking productive. If anyone has any friends, or enemies even, who happen to have a free morning and would like to come in from 9 to 10:30ish and earn $20 and a bagel (possibly a muffin), please let us know…

Please Fire Me.

Later that day another email...

Please make every effort to be here no later than 9am on Friday, even better - 8:45. I will be working in the "conference room" first thing in the morning. Please come visit me every fifteen minutes. Please wear shoes that make noise when you walk..

Hard to know what's a joke and what's real these days...to clarify, this actually happened.


  1. If I could, I would totally come to your office and get a bagel. And maybe say something inapproptiate (and wear really high heels).
