Default Letter from the boss

Dear fellow employees:

As the CFO of this business that employees 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama is now our President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases I figure that the Clients will have to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8%, but since we cannot increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been eating at me for a while, as we believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who will have to go.

So, this is what I did. I strolled through our parking lot and found 6 Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem.

These folks wanted change; I gave it to them.

Sincerely,
The Boss

I doubt this is true, but if it is, then it serves them right.

If it was a true story, I think he did the best he could to be fair with his back against the wall and forced to choose what to do.

I doubt thats true...but it is increadibly funny...and if an insitution was doing this, they might find reasons to sack those people who...all just happened to have bumper stickers like that...but of course...never say that was the true reason
