Holiday Luncheon at Work

We had our Holiday Luncheon last week:

It looks mostly like the luncheon that we had last year: (sans lobster tail)  Something funny was that everyone noticed that everyone got exactly three shrimp !!

As I said last year, https://bacontime.wordpress.com/2011/12/12/lunch-for-week-xiii/,in this day and age of piss poor Obmaconomy, we should be grateful for anything that the business “gives” us. For 2013, the company will no longer contribute to our 401k, there will no raises, healthcare premiums are up significantly.  I work for a multi fucking billion dollar corporation and we won’t even have coffee service (which was free/ no cost to the parent corp).

Merry Christmas all !!!!!

    In my company we used to get a christmas hamper – two bottle of wine, cheese, crackers, chutneys, chocolates etc plus a christmas party. Then that went down to chocolates and two bottles of wine, then just two bottles of wine. Then one bottle of wine. Then they dropped the wine and we just had the christmas party. Now we get a voucher for £20 to go and get pissed. But no one does. Jingle Bells!!!

      We recently received an email from the division president and the subject was “Revised Company Dress Code.” The first line said that we were going to go to a “casual dress code.” I thought that to be really strange because I thought that we were already at a “casual” level !! We can now wear jeans every day if we don’t have any meetings with outside visitors. Some people suspect that the company made this decision to alleviate the sting of no raises, no 401k match and the plethora of other niceties that we no longer enjoy. I’d be glad to get the 20 to get pissed !!
