“Think Green”

With “encouragement” from management, many of my fellow employees now have this as part of their e-mail signature:

While another is less enthusiastic:

Please consider the unemployed loggers before printing this email.

So my first thought on reading the announcement was:


My second was:

That is one more vacancy between us and layoffs!
