I woke up this morning to find a nastygram (consulting-speak for an scolding e-mail) in my inbox. I’m generally a good employee, so I haven’t gotten many of these before, but generally they’re for stuff like “you haven’t done the required ethics training” or “you haven’t mailed in your expense envelopes.” Basically stupid stuff, but I understand why they get mad about it – it’s kind of important to the organization.
Today’s was probably the meanest, angriest nastygram I’ve ever gotten. It was sent to my whole division of the New York office – big stuff! The reason? Attendance at last Friday’s happy hour was low and we didn’t get our money’s worth on the top shelf open bar.
Now there’s a reason to get upset!
