      Reminded me of this:

      Office Chirstmas Party

      FROM: Patty Lewis, Human Resources Director
      TO: All Employees
      DATE: December 1
      RE: Christmas Party

      I'm happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will take place on December 23, starting at noon, in the banquet room at Luigi's Open Pit Barbecue. No host bar, but plenty of eggnog! We'll have a small band playing traditional carols... feel free to sing along. And, don't be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as Santa Claus!

      A Christmas tree will be lit at 1:00 P.M. Exchange of gifts among employees can be done at that time; however, no gift should be over $10.00 to make the giving of gifts easy for everyone's pockets. This gathering is only for employees! A special announcement will be made by our CEO at that time!

      Merry Christmas to you and your family.

      Patty

      RE: Holiday Party

      In no way was yesterday's memo intended to exclude our Jewish employees. We recognize that Chanukah is an important holiday which often coincides with Christmas, though unfortunately not this year. However, from now on we're calling it our "Holiday Party." The same policy applies to employees who are celebrating Kwanzaa at this time. There will be no Christmas tree and no Christmas carols sung. We will have other types of music for your enjoyment.

      Happy now?

      Happy Holidays to you and your family.

      Patty

      RE: Holiday Party

      Regarding the note I received from a member of Alcoholics Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table ....You didn't sign your name. I'm happy to accommodate this request, but if I put a sign on a table that reads, "AA Only," you wouldn't be anonymous anymore. How am I supposed to handle this?

      Somebody????

      Forget about the gifts exchange, no gift exchange is allowed since the union members feel that $10.00 is too much money, and executives believe $10.00 is very little for a gift. NO GIFT EXCHANGE WILL BE ALLOWED.

      RE: Holiday Party

      What a diverse group we are! I had no idea that December 20 begins the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which forbids eating and drinking during daylight hours. There goes the party! Seriously, we can appreciate how a luncheon this time of year does not accommodate our Muslim employees'beliefs. Perhaps Luigi's can hold off on serving your meal until the end of the party (the days are so short this time of year), or else package everything for take home in little foil swans. Will that work?

      Meanwhile, I've arranged for members of Overeaters Anonymous to sit farthest from the dessert buffet. Pregnant women will get the table closest to the restrooms. Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not have to sit with gay men; each gender will have their own table. To the person asking permission to cross dress, no cross dressing allowed. We will have booster seats for short people. Low-fat food will be available for those on a diet. We cannot control the salt used in the food thus we suggest for those people with blood pressure problems to taste first. There will be fresh fruits as dessert for diabetics since the restaurant is unable to supply "no sugar" desserts.

      Sorry!

      Did I miss anything?

      RE: Holiday Party

      People, people! Nothing sinister was intended by having our CEO dress up ike Santa Claus! Even if the anagram of "Santa" does happen to be "Satan," there is no evil connotation to our own "little man in a red suit." It's a tradition, folks, like sugar shock at Halloween, or family feuds over the Thanksgiving turkey, or broken hearts on Valentine's Day. Could we lighten up? Please?????????

      Also, the company has changed their mind in announcing the special announcement at the gathering. You will get a notification in the mail, sent to your home.

      RE: The #*&^@*^Holiday Party

      I have no#&*@*^ idea what the announcement is all about. What the #&^[email protected] do I care...? I KNOW WHAT I AM GOING TO GET!!!!!!!!!!!! You change your address now and your are dead!!!!!!!!!!!! No more changes of address will be allowed in my office. Try to come in and change your address, I will have you hung from the ceiling in the warehouse!!

      Vegetarians!?!?!? I've had it with you people!!! We're going to keep this party at Luigi's Open Pit Barbecue whether you like it or not. You can sit quietly at the table furthest from the "grill of death," as you so quaintly put it, and you'll get your @ #$^&*! salad bar, including hydroponic tomatoes. But you know, they have feelings, too. Tomatoes scream when you slice them. I've heard them scream. I'm hearing them scream right now !HA! I hope you all have a rotten holiday!

      Drive drunk and die, you hear me!!!!!!!!!!!

      RE: Patty Lewis and Holiday Party

      I'm sure I speak for all of us in wishing Patty Lewis a speedy recovery from her stress-related illness, and I'll continue to forward your cards to her at the sanitarium. In the meantime, management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with full pay.

      Happy Holidays!

        So, let me get this straight. A teacher decides that Easter Eggs, in her classroom, must be called Spring Spheres. The media reports that the school renamed Easter Eggs (when it was not the school but a teacher in the school). Then, it's posted here and it's generalized to "suk it seattle and the rest of you PC a-holes! Youre killing our culture" [sic] then, "We’re talking about the US educational system here."

        It was ONE teacher at ONE school in ONE city in the corner of the US. Let's keep it in perspective.

        For all any of us know, she could be teaching at a school that has primarily Jewish students. I know of public schools with 80%+ Jewish population.

            I'd just like to point out that it's a private school. Easter comes from the name of a pagan goddess by the way, and colored eggs are also a pagan tradition....just sayin'.

              Regardless of the history, Christmas as well has become a Christian celebration and our holidays are based on them for a reason. There is no shame in accepting reality for what it is but it's a sad day when the students are smarter than the teacher.

                Meh. I agree the teacher is an idiot, but we are only getting the 16 year old's version of the story. The story indicates the student attended a meeting which led her believe there may be problems with her plan, interesting she chose to go forward with it anyway.

                As for the rest of your statement, I disagree. It was the Catholic Church, way back in the 50's who pushed to get religion out of public school....they (very wisely) felt that religious teachings and celebrations belong within each persons church/family. Realizing that even among Christians there are different traditions, and that not everyone attending a public school is a Christian is not "pussification"....you could even say it's a rather "Christian" thing to do.
