This is a follow-up note from the boss of our local office:
I would appreciate your support of this unique opportunity to show off some of your talents in preparation for our upcoming visit from our CEO! Let’s show them why our team is #1 and have some fun along with it! It looks like most of the opportunities do not require too much talent. Please sign up!
Like I said, they cannot order the troops to enjoy themselves, but they can suggest, and for those of us with offices & doors that close the message is clear: volunteer or find yourself on some variant of the eastern front.
And then this unhelpful suggestion came from a colleague:
fuigb – You should see if drinking a case of beer in under an hour would work.
OK, that one made me laugh
