Since our present managers are socially inept, the director decided that they would each contribute $50 towards our Christmas luncheon.
Of course, most of them complained that this was a financial hardship and started their own efforts against the party. They then started asking their employes for additional money for the Christmas party.
Suddenly, the Christmas party was no longer a $5 event. Rather, it was quickly becoming a $10 event. Of course, at $10, most people were not willing to sign up for it. After all, for $10, you could have lunch at a nice restaurant and not have to socialize with people that you don’t like.
I love Christmas!!
