Hey, corporate assholes make decisions that fly in the face of the entire farking point of the company. Color me shocked.

Next up, "Corporation buys tattoo shop, decides to 'clean up the image', requires employees to cover tattoos and put on blue smocks."

The curse of New Management. Stupid assholes with that lovely and winning combination of ignorance and arrogance swoop in like seagulls, make a lot of noise, crap all over everything, and then fly away, leaving everyone else to clean up the mess.

"That 'wheel' thing, let's invent it again, but without all that obscene roundness."
"Why are the computers using Linus when Apples don't get viruses?"
"All we are doing is cutting waste, like insurance and retirement benefits."
"How can they call it minimum wage when it's not zero?"
"Because I know our clients prefer to see men in speedos and girls in sexy turd sandwich costumes, that's why!"

Extra nasty in a time of surplus labor, when management seeks to reinforce the myth of their own value by inventing superfluous job requirements to increase their control over employees. When the revolution finally comes, we will need a really long wall for all these douchebags to line up against.

So there's your anecdote for the day.
