StreetlightInTheGhetto: enik: The numbers came as a huge surprise to workers who believed most of the money they were raising was funding mammograms.

"Holy cow! That's, that's disappointing," said one worker.

"Wow, that's just sad. That's really sad," said another.

Hmmm, I wonder if the question was asked as to what workers received for bonuses when they got a donor to commit. I'm sure the workers weren't too upset to cash those checks.

Yeah, people have the audacity to want to get paid for sitting at a desk on a phone for 8 hours a day. Crazy.

Should they have checked things out more? Probably. I quit a job I worked for because we started working with a shady-ass non-profit group that, as far as I can still tell, does absof--kinglutely nothing but sounds good. I couldn't live with that - but other coworkers either needed the money and chose to remain ignorant or just were the type to believe anything an authority figure told them without question.

But in this economy, you find a job raising money to help people with cancer, and you get paid as well... I could see putting blinders on, chugging along, and not asking any questions.

It takes more than one egg to make an omelette...
