More Petty Corporate Dweebs

Does your brain start to soften if you work in a corporation? Here’s another story about someone taking someone else’s food and complete irrationality ensuing:

Fired for sending catty personal email

First of all, do you really go to work with no cash, no checkbook and no credit card such that you can’t buy lunch? Second, do people really go around stealing food? (yes, I’m afraid, bizarre though it may seem.) Third, do you openly insult a peer in email and CC your co-workers? And finally, do you really fire people for minor, albeit stupid, lapses in email behavior?

If I had to choose I would say that whomever decided to fire people over this is the stupidest. It’s a tough choice.

But what’s even more petty is posting stupid things like this on your blog! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fired for Eating Pizza

Fired for Eating Pizza

Although he didn’t work in the department that held the meeting where the pizza was served, Garrison figured it was fair game since the company had bought it and it looked like it was going to be wasted if it wasn’t eaten. What he didn’t know is that several other employees had already worked out a plan to take the leftover pizza home with them.

When they discovered one-third of the leftover pizza pie had been eaten, the employees reported Garrison to management, ultimately leading to his firing last November รขโ‚ฌโ€ a month after he ate the food.

Although this is probably not as simple as it sounds, if you are one of the people that reported a fellow employee to the boss for eating pizza, you are a colossal loser.
