Isn't that special?

I was getting some much-needed coffee in the hotel employee breakroom, which we spa folks are graciously permitted to use, when I noticed the box for nominations for Employee of the Month. On top of the box were the stacked forms one uses to actually nominate an employee for this honor.

Too bad each and every one of them says "Employee of the Month Ballet" on it!

The stupid, it burns!


I really should take advantage of the proximity of the suggestion box to point this out to whomever...

Maybe it means exactly what it says? Now you can spend the day imagining your co-orkers in tights, on their toes.

But but but ... I spell-checked it! It didn't find anything! ;-D

Now there's a graceful mistake...

Carteach beat me to it. I'm thinkin' there's a recital every six months featuring the winners.

Hey, if y'all could see the SIZE of some of the employees here...

The thought of a ballet recital featuring them evokes the original Disney Fantasia, with the ballet-dancing hippos, elephants, ostriches, and crocodiles!

OMG, Jerle from Engineering in a tutu!

ROFLMAO!

Well, it's OBVIOUS there was no roofpreading of THAT form... :-)

Heh!

OMG, Jerle from Engineering in a tutu!

Wait. A hotel has an ENGINEERING Dept? What the Hell do they engineer?

Suldog said...

Just suggest "The Firebird" and see if they get it.

Christina LMT said...

Old NFO, that's what scares me...the knowledge that at least one person besides the originator of the form read that, plus all the people who go in and out of the breakroom on a daily basis, etc., and nobody caught such an obvious mistake.

B.R. ;)

Buck, "Engineering", aka "Maintenance".

Suldog, clever! But unfortunately too late. I did make a suggestion from Anony Mouse to please fix the ballot forms. We'll see if they get THAT.

So, I take it that the nomination and selection is actually the careful work-politics dance we all knew it was?

Christina LMT said...

LOL, Wing! I suppose. I finally got around to taking a picture today, we'll see if I can blog it tonight.
