A Singapore firm held a fire drill at 4pm when all their 5,000 staff were on shift. After 20 minutes waiting outside, they were treated to this tannoy announcement.
Dear Employees - With melting heart I am making this announcement that for many of you it will be a last evacuation drill. Due to the recession we are laying off almost 50% of employees. While moving in, if your ID card doesn't work, then you are among those laid off and all your belongings will be couriered to you tomorrow.
We have followed this approach as we didn't want to fill e-mail box with layoff mails and goodbye mails in thousands and also to avoid any fight inside office.
Hope you have a nice career ahead. Please move in and try your luck.
If only someone had YouTube'd it.
UPDATE: Sadly, Doubting Richard has squirrelled that this little bit of fun post is a hoax, more's the pity. Oh well.
