…but I thought I’d reprint it anyway. I got it in an email a couple of times and whether it’s true or bunk, it’s a good way to go about layoffs these days. Enjoy (or wet yourself if you’re a lefty):

A Lay-off letter from an excellent boss.

Dear Employees:

As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that
Barrack Obama is our President and that our taxes and government fees will
increase in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by
about 10%. But since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the
dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees
instead.

This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and
I didn’t know how to choose who would have to go.

So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and found sixty
‘Obama’ bumper stickers on our employees’ cars and have decided these folks
will be the ones to let go. I can’t think of a more fair way to approach
this problem. They voted for change…… I gave it to them.

I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

THE BOSS
