Oh, how I wish I had the guts to go through with this…
I wish I worked at Work Inc.
Hah, yeah – I was giggling to myself when I came up with that. But I googled it just now and it turns out there actually IS a real Work Inc (http://www.workinc.org/), “providing individuals with disabilities a wide array of employment services.” Aw — now I feel bad.
I think they have some job openings though!
Don’t feel bad, now they’ve got some free advertising through tou ^_^
If a place is going to name itself Work Inc they better expect random cameos in things when trying to chose a self descriptive name for a onetime use company.
Years ago, when I was in the Navy, I was asked by my CO to help with an exercise. For training purposes he needed someone to call our security watch desk with a bomb threat to see how they would react and if they would follow protocol. When I did it he asked threatening and specific.
The kid on watch at the time totally freaked out and tried to evacuate the building (after dropping the phone and leaving me on the line to hear his panicked screams). While the CO wasn’t impressed by the watch team’s performance he thought it was such a good idea that afterwards he asked me to be the official “bomb threatener” to train new personnel.
In an otherwise crappy job, calling bomb threats to your place of business (with permission) is a great stress reliever.
In my high school this was a go to solution for getting out of a test. It got so bad one year that we almost had to go long into summer (or at least that’s the rumor they spread to stop it and no-one wanted to call the bluff).
It never happened after the 2000-2001 year.
