This is about how passing something on really happens - LOL

You Didn't Get The Memo?

Memo from CEO to Manager:
Today at 11 o’ clock there will be a total eclipse of the sun. This is when the sun disappears behind the moon for two minutes. As this is something that cannot be seen every day, time will be allowed for employees to view the eclipse in the parking lot. Staff should meet in the lot at ten to eleven, when I will deliver a short speech introducing the eclipse, and giving some background information. Safety goggles will be made available at a small cost.

Memo from Manager to Department Head:
Today at ten to eleven, all staff should meet in the car park. This will be followed by a total eclipse of the sun, which will appear for two minutes. For a moderate cost, this will be made safe with goggles. The CEO will deliver a short speech beforehand to give us all some information. This is not something that can be seen every day.

Memo from Department Head to Floor Manager:
The CEO will today deliver a short speech to make the sun disappear for two minutes in the form of an eclipse. This is something that cannot be seen every day, so staff will meet in the car park at ten or eleven. This will be safe, if you pay a moderate cost.

Memo from Floor Manager to Supervisor:
Ten or eleven staff are to go to the car park, where the CEO will make the sun disappear for two minutes. This doesn’t happen every day. It will be safe and as usual, it will cost you.

Memo from Supervisor to Staff:
Some staff will go to the car park today to see the CEO disappear. It is a pity this doesn’t happen every day.

Staff member to his kids when he got home:
Today we were made to stand outside in the dead of heat because the CEO wanted to give a speech - what a moron !- and as he was reeling on about the mysteries of the Universe suddenly the sun disappears and the sky goes all dark and the CEO says "put on the goggles, put on the goggles" and the supervisor goes "one dollar a pair, one dollar a pair". What a mess!

I had no change with me so I had to go back to my desk. By the time I returned, the sun was back and in the courtyard I could see the whole staff looking up at the sky with these amazing goggles on and the CEO standing before them and rattling on in inspirational terms about the Sun and planets and I'm telling you, everyone is insane in this company. This is a bloody sect! I've resigned. 'm not going back!

Just shows how things can get distorted going down through the grapevine! Typical for companies nowdays!

Remember when we were a little younger, we use to play a game called, gossip. One person would write something on a piece of paper, and then each would whisper what the other person said in the ear of the person beside them down to the end of the line, and the last person would repeat what he was told. It was so funny, because it was never close to what was written on the piece of paper. I hope that made sense...

Oh, well!! have a nice evening...
