Several of the fired workers say they wore the matching colors so they would be identified as a group when heading out for a happy hour event after work. They say the executive who fired them initially accused them of wearing the matching color as a form of protest against management.

Ironically, had the employees been wearing orange as a form of protest, it would have been illegal to fire them.

David Thorne is an ass. A funny ass, but an ass nonetheless. Still, I think I'd enjoy working with him. Too bad Simon doesn't.

Why? Because they're hiring 50,000 people on April 19th, and want to disprove the notion that working for them is the end of the line for one's career.

Unemployed? If so, you probably miss more than just the paychecks - the workplace is also where most of your human interaction comes from. If you're mourning the nuggets of gold that you generally hear between the cubes, pop another Monster and shuffle through CoWorkerGold's twitter feed while waiting for TPIR to start.

In these trying economic times, be grateful that you're going someplace where they pay you... many can't say the same right now. If that's not comfort enough, you can also be grateful that you're not going to work at Tiger Oil, where CEO Mike Davis floods his workforce with memos whenever he's all pissy... which seems to be all the time.

It's not uncommon to find little anonymous notes and signs around the office - get more toner, refill the damn ice trays, etc. I guess they only get disturbing when they pop up in the men's room.
