This is a funny thread. I just got back from vacation and saw a late afternoon mandatory meeting from my second level manager.
The subject was team building and the activity would be explained at the meeting. Everyone was on edge.
We go to the meeting and my 2nd level mgr explains that we had just completed a $4M chiller project successfully.
To celebrate she wanted us to video the whole group doing the Harlem Shuffle in the Data Center boiler room.
Now she has around 20 permanent employees under here but at least 8 including myself are over 50 years old.
So nobody knew what she was talking about. We all went to the training room and watched several organizations do the shuffle via you tube.
Of course she mentioned that none of the obscene stuff would be allowed. We then proceeded to the boiler room and cut the video.
She hasn't sent out the final cut yet but I'm sure we looked pretty stupid. After the skit she took the entire crew across the street for beer and appetizers.
So we wasted at least 25-30 man hours on a Harlem Shuffle team building video.
Kind of funny how one employee gets fired while others get to go have free drinks for doing the same thing.
I don't think I'll plan on working for Donahan any time soon.
I like goofing off and getting paid for it too much.
I'd never hire you in the first place. Low level employee who needed about an hour to dance like a dummy. My wife and I took salsa lessons so I know a thing or two about real dancing. I usually began phasing employees out when they get to your age. They've been with the company for so long that they become lazy and feel entitled to be lazy. Next.
I'm here waiting for my package. As soon as they give it to me I'm out the door. Until then I'll continue to take their money. And am not a low level employee.
As for dancing my wife and i took some of the introductory dance classes at Aurthur Murray. Waltz, salsa etc...
After the introductory part was done they hit us with the hook. Said it would cost us about $8,000 to get to next level because we sucked.
I gave up dancing and began drinking.

"Here waiting for my package." Exactly what I'm talking about. Entitled old people. I could afford you but I doubt you're qualified.
Never once has that thought crossed my mind. We have surveillance cameras outside our home and in our gated community. I also trust my wife who is a good Christian woman. She's taking me to a nice birthday lunch today as well. Some of the peons who work underneath me bought me gifts as well. I'll probably donate this crap to a goodwill store to get a tax credit FWIW.
1) Win the next game.
2) See goal #1
