Just Plain Silly.

Looking for a volunteer opportunity? Check out your volunteer horoscope. I received this information in a communication at work. Not too long after an invite to a webinar for employees on "being single in a couples world" to celebrate healthy relationships month.

My suggestions were . . . Active listening, helping youth, tutoring and arts & crafts.

Ok, first of all, what the hell is “active listening”? It really does not sound like something I want to be involved with. Also, it seems to be part of everyone’s horoscope. Second, I’m not child-friendly, so helping youth is definitely out, unless it involves helping them off a cliff. You must be kidding me about tutoring. And, finally, ARTS & CRAFTS??? In the eternal words of Stanford Blatch “"We all judge. That's our hobby. Some people do arts and crafts. We judge."

Your HR department needs to be shot. What the fuck is "healthy relationships month"?

"The quality of our relationships is an important factor in our well being. Sometimes, we get so busy that we neglect to give them the care and nurturing they deserve." Good thing we have the HR dept to help.

All this talk about health relationship seems to have distracted the HR team from their priority: we haven't received a reminder of the summer dress code yet and It is June 2nd. How will I know what is appropriate to wear in the office?

I'm wearing boxer shorts and a tank top in my office right now. The HR department (Oliver) doesn't seem to mind. And, yes I am doing work.
