No Milk?! YOU’RE FIRED!

Posted on: October 18, 2011

The CEO of a New Jersey company who was upset that there was no milk for his coffee threatened to fire employees who finish off the office milk supply and don’t replenish it!! I’m not kidding!! 

Beckerman Public Relations executive Keith Zakheim wrote in an e-mail, “I have repeatedly requested until I am blue in the face that the person that finishes the milk must replace the milk. It’s not complicated and is a simple sign of respect for fellow employees.” He continued, “I am gravely serious when I write this — if I catch someone not replacing the milk, or at least, in the case where the downstairs store has closed already, not sending an e-mail to the office so the first person that arrives . . . can pick one up upon arrival — then I am going to fire you. I’m not joking.” He closed his letter, saying, “Have fun explaining that one to your next employer. This is not a empty threat, so PLEASE don’t test me.”

Ayayaille!!!

Should someone who doesn’t follow the milk rule be fired? What is the most ridiculous on-the-job (or at school) rule you’ve ever heard?
