Have you seen the Tiger Oil memos? Whoah, Nelly!
It’s “…a total of 22 enormously entertaining memos; all sent by, or on behalf of, the firm’s incredibly amusing, painfully tactless, and seemingly constantly angry CEO Edward ‘Tiger Mike’ Davis to his staff.”
Here’s are some of my favorites.
Idle conversation and gossip in this office among employees will result in immediate termination.
Don’t talk about other people and other things in this office.
DO YOUR JOBS AND KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!
I can swear – you can’t:
I swear, but since I am the owner of this company, that is my privilege, and this privilege is not to be interpreted as the same for any employee. That differentiates me from you, and I want to keep it that way. There will be absolutely no swearing, by any employee, male or female, in this office, ever.
Per Edward Mike Davis’ orders, there will be no more birthday celebrations, birthday cakes, levity, or celebrations of any kind within the office. This is a business office.
If you have to celebrate, do it after office hours on your own time.
I can’t believe that company isn’t around anymore :o)
Hat-tip to Peter Billingham for telling me about these!
Also – it made me think of this classic Simpsons moment:
